Another fine mess

A statue of the immortally great Stan and Ollie was unveiled today in Ulveston, Stan's home town. Ken Dodd did the business and as he remarked on the news just now, it does actually bear a striking resemblance to the pair. I think it even manages to capture their blithely conspiratorial comic spirit.

I suppose something must have gone terribly wrong in the commissioning process.
