He said that he wanted to print out some menus for a gourmet evening that he and Simon Doom, another stalwart of the HSL, will be holding round at Simon’s flat at the weekend. He said that it is going to be a surrealist buffet meal gourmet evening, and added that he hadn’t invited me because, ‘it probably wasn’t my sort of thing… you know, there would be lots of young intellectuals there…’ – he did, however, give me a copy of the menu:

Banana Ice Basket.
Nasty Pork Supreme.
Tripe Mullion Delight.
Bobbing Plums in Wet Rice.
Caramel Lump-Tubes.
‘Carnival Style’ Brussels Sprouts.
Sesame and Kale Battalions.
Dumpling Head-Floaters.
Candy Sugar Pig Parts.
Fettled Baps with Oven Chips.
Ringlets of Gut Broth.
Goat Cheese Amulets.
Peppercorn Hoof Pie.
Diced Webs in Aspic.
Lung and Tail Risotto.
Stallion Hip Meringue.
Sponged Mutton Chunks.
