This is especially relevant to my interests as I have a more seasonal taste for childhood-ruining rackets served up as "Christmas magic."
How about a picture of that old Southend mascot?
Sammy the Shrimp!!! I knew the guy who used to wear it, sadly no longer with us, he had it specially made as he couldn't find a decent shrimp costume. It remains the best shrimp outfit I've ever seen, full length you would have seen that the body of it went all the way down to the ankles at the same, tight fitting, width, meaning poor Sammy could barely walk. Watching him trying to get round Roots Hall was ruddy hilarious. It came to a head in the mascot grand national when Sammy waddled along to the first 'jump' then face planted over it. The club seemed to think this was embarassing and decided to change the costume, to the much more embarassing and hideous current costume:
The KKK would be proud of this, suppose he can walk though.
