Britain's Secret Theft of Ethiopia's Most Wondrous Manuscripts

quote [ Plundered in 1868, they are kept at the British Library—and an ongoing campaign seeks to bring them home. ]

And I'll get the book back, creased and torn

So the Brits left with a Razzle in their pocket?

The second top-shelf nudie magazine I ever bought was called Razzle. This was before internet porn, for you youngsters. The first was called Mayfair, which was all very elegant. But I remember Razzle for the my first sight of labia. I was always taught that ladies have a hole there, yet I was suddenly confronted with external female genitalia. It was quite a shock for a naive 17 year old, I can tell you.

I was about 13 and it was a shock for me, too.

I was just happy to spot the reference from a lesser known Ian Dury song. Made all those lonely nights listening to Ian sing about Razzles in his pocket and Fucking Ada worth the effort.
