Fun with a bit of Photoshopping from yours truly. Sorry, I just can't help myself sometimes. :lol:

Ye Gods that is funny, thanks for that Mrs S, spat my tea! :o
With the possible exception of dysentery Steptoe cuisine is surely the most effective diet plan ever conceived and now we’ve got a marketing slogan: not fit for human consumption. The worst moment though.....in the first movie, Albert compresses Delia’s manure with his bare hands, and then enjoys a sarnie. Maybe that’s how he got so thin, he’s feeding a tapeworm :shock:

Glad you enjoyed it, DOY - and I did think you'd be about the likeliest to leave a comment. 8)

It has backfired against me though... I just sat down to sink my teeth into a nice turkey sandwich as I read your post. But when you've been walking around Tesco and have been out in the cold - needs must. And, you'd never guess what I have in the kitchen cupboard. Maybe you would, but the brand above is definitely NOT available to the public. :wink:


I remember the first time I saw that scene - where Harold deduces the only hope of finding the lost ring was to '...follow the trajectory*...' and then asks 'What is soft?' :lol: That was THE funniest scene ever, to a 13 year old lad!



*I've never, ever in 30+ years, found a use for that word. Seems too good to waste it. :lol:

I liked the scene where Albert was cooking breakfast and dropped the fried egg on the dirty floor...then scooped it up and put it on Harolds plate :x

I remember that scene very well. Delightful, yes. :shock:

Same here Archie :). Can’t get those proper iron frying pans anymore, but I’ve got a few, treasured cookware.
3 Stooges proof, Moe could hit Curly with one of these antiques and it wouldn't bend 8)

Yes, I should think you'd be somewhat embalmed... another form of pickling, I believe. :lol:

With a belly full of paraffin wax that can’t be digested, you’d think so!
Maybe that’s how Albert was able to put it away, a regular Rasputin :o
Speaking of, have the Steptoe's ever been immortalized in wax?
Have they ever appeared at Madame Tussauds?
If not, why not ??

Although I have never seen it there is a Steptoe and son waxwork in Great Yarmouth!

I thought I'd consult Google and....

...there you go, Phil; now you can say you have. :)

The one of 'Albert' looks very good from what I can see here (never one of the best sorts of environments to take photos in.) I can't say I'm too impressed with the one of 'Harold' he looks at the age of what he would be today! And is that Boy George on the left, or Michael Jackson?? :?

I'm sure my parents mentioned us going there some years back because we holidayed in the area when I was about 2. My Mum has an incredibly good memory for things but I doubt it's worth asking her if they had the figures there, then. :wink:


EDIT: Sorry - the one I couldn't work out is Boy George. I've looked at more of these photos now and found the Michael Jackson one. Some 'interesting' inclusions in there... Cannon & Ball (and why not, I still find them funny) and Eddie The Eagle is one I think may baffle the current and subsequent generations! But at least it looks like him - some I can't fathom at all. The one that looks uncannily lifelike though, is former Prime Minister John Major. Funny that! :mrgreen:

Paraffin, like wine can be red or white (clear, but that's splitting hairs of course.)

So, who would know if a bit of mixing and matching had taken place? :wink:
