The Norwich Puppet Master (aka Puppet Man - he even has his own range of greetings cards and miscellanea in local shops) has been a popular figure here for many years. A while back, during one of the gutter press' periodic pogroms of hypocrisy the police stopped him using his trouser snake and forced him to use hand puppets instead.
But yay! Saturday saw the return of the trouser snake. For how long this will be delighting local children and frightening their prudish parents only time will tell, but I hope it's back to stay.
