Prick us, do we not bleed Brockley?

Pete has taken the "I Broccoli Brockley" concept and turned it up to eleven. Thanks to Claire for the photo.

Is that a Boris Bus? Bet he's not though that one through.

He's a mung.

Um. Isn't there a 'c' in Brockley? Sorry.

Brockley Nick said...

Cs cost extra.

Rule 1: don't get a tattoo

Rule 2: if you disregard rule 1, ensure the tattooist can spell

Damn... a typo of the worst possible kind.

Could possibly be painted over to say "I <3 COK" which would be less inflammatory.

Brockley Nick said...

It's a sophisticated satirical point: 'Brokley' symbolises Lesser Brockley, in protest at Greater Brockley expansionists.

He must have gone to an artisan tattooist. A good honest, straightforward tattooist would never have made such an error.

Could ave been worse, could have been Raynes park?

Very good!
It is a regrettably permanent medium.

I am a stickler for typs. I love/hate a good them. Particularly a tattooed one :)

Regardless of this (which I am assuming will be rectified soon to show true Brockley love) it is a great tattoo, the front of the bus has 171 on it.

I was mildly impressed with the committment to South East London, I really do love Brockley, but I could never go this far!

Claire said...

In my excitement at such a great typo, I have made one myself. Such is life.

Dave Sparks said...

How can anyone be excited about a 'great typo'?

I think it's dreadful that this person has tattooed a spelling error on their arm/leg.

Anonymous said...

Perhaps they're indifferent about Brockley and this shows in the spelling.

Dave.... Chill.

Are these going to be standard-issue for all the BC team? Hope to see you leading by example, Nick ....

Claire said...

I can be excited by a typo because I am very sad person who actually revels slightly in pointing them out to people.

Not in a self-satisfied manner, more of a services to writing way. It is a vocation, I can assure you.

Standard issue tattoos, what an excellent idea Kate. I say you obly let people into BC Drinks if they have one (or at least are committed to getting one, that night.)

Claire said...

And I do it again. I have clearly had too much wine and not enough sleep.

Not enough wine to get my Bro(c)kley tattoo yet though...

I will just leave now.

Don't be so hard on yourself anon, turn that frown upside down!

Danja said...

I must resist.

Tamsin said...

As an equally sad person, Claire, can I point out that the full stop should be outside the closing bracket? ;o)

nonny mouse said...

Maybe the typo is a subtle revenge on pedants, whose teeth will be gritted the instant they lay eyes on it. Doubly so if they are anti-tattoo.

Just off to unclench my jaws now.

PS is it just my laptop, or has the appearance of the comments pages on this blog changed in the last couple of weeks? I don't like it, anyway.

Oh it's a bus! I think the cabbage in the top right hand corner confused me.
