In a weird quirk of fate, the episode of Bang Bang It's Reeves and Mortimer I watched tonight features a sketch set in the seaside town I visited as a kid, and the actual Chicken Machine I wrote about in the entry before this one:
(laughingly to Marty) "Hey, that looks exactly like the Chicken Machine I was talking about!"
*spots "Mr T's" sticker and Cheeky Chic picture*
"That is the same bloody one! THE EXACT SAME ONE!"
*camera pans back to show the slots and the road opposite, revealing the second most familiar place in the world to me*
End of an era
