I was reading the Memorable Things From Your Yoof thread this morning and was thinking about these. I once described a bloke to a copper as "having a bog brush haircut". He didn't have a clue what I was talking about. Back in the sixties it was a pretty standard description of a grown out skinhead haircut.
I think he's more interested in the handle end than the brush end...I get the feeling we are dealing with a very dark fetish here.
Possibly dating back to a bored night in the block and some " experiments".
I saw a shelf full of the things on camp here last week - will see if they have a manufacturers stamp on them.This seems as good a place as any to drop this.
Those white long handled bog brushes that were in every block and every quarter from my time mid-70s onwards. As often used to clean car wheels and engines as bogs.
I find the ones you can buy everywhere today to be far inferior, so...
...does anyone know if they can be bought today, and where from?
probably impressed by the flexibility & yoga skills need to stand on ther head.As a child I lived in a house that had an outside toilet as well as the more usual inside toilet.
One day we discovered a hedgehog had gone into the outside toilet and had gone to sleep next to one of those brushes
