World’s/Britain’s Strongest Man

JUST LIKE the LORD MAYOR’S SHOW, one of those dreary, ’70s-originating annual televised events that somehow forgot to stop happening around 1983. Various fat bastards put on bodybelts and grunt while pulling trucks up hills or carrying barrels over a fence as a bored crowd look in the other direction. World contest always dominated by huge Swedes, but Britain’s champion was, is and always will be the redoubtable GEOFF CAPES.

    As if Boxing Day wasn’t depressing enough.
