So this folk duo were doing a gig at the Swan in High Wycombe, and they were being shown to their dressing room. The door had their names on it which impressed them, since they were more accustomed to dressing rooms that said “gentlemen” on the door. However they were less impressed when they saw inside.

“Oh no, they haven’t cleaned it!” the manager moaned, as they looked over the strewn bottles, clothes, spilt drinks, odd stains, and general wreckage.

“What happened?” asked a musician.

“It was an end-of tour party.”

“Who?” they asked, imagining some debauched rock band.

“Sooty,” said the manager. “It got a bit out of hand.”
