Recognition

A few years ago in a hotel bar with friends, despite never having met her, I instantly recognised Alison Goldfrapp from behind. I realised at the time that this might not cast me in the best light, although I still maintain that she is a distinctive enough shape and size for me to not automatically end up on the sex offenders’ register.

The prize for recognising from behind public figures you’ve never met, however, was summarily snatched last night by psychonomy’s brother, when from a standing start he recognised the figure walking away from him outside the pub as Londoners’ pet peeve, RMT leader Bob Crow, in under a second. Sterling work from the lad there.

Your recognition of Ms Goldfrapp from this aspect doesn't have to imply such wayward behaviour - you might just be a lucky, lucky man.

I saw her once outside HMV on Oxford Street in her civvies. She is very distinctive.

Surely it was the horse's tail that gave it away?
