Walked past this man (above) outside a Kentucky in Clapham Junction, in south London yesterday. His downbeat look contrasted with the happy chicken meal advertised next to him. There is a more upmarket poultry chain called Nando’s. It’s catchline is: “We put the chic into chicken”; KFC no doubt puts the ick.

Below, today — opposite me as I write — in a public library is a man with a book about the universe before him, fast asleep. You would think the universe would be enough to stimulate you for ten minutes, but no.
