Maybe I'm just tired and emotional in my old age but I think that music is something special. I would love to see that performed live with the orchestra at Proms in the Paddock or something. Do we know who the peasant is yet?

That would explain how and why he's got a full page ad in the 'listings mag'
I thought that snail was called Brian though

Don't care who he is tbh as long as he keeps making me laugh. One of the nicest people on twitter and obviously has some skills. Good on him for using them.

I think that Brian the Snail's origins are more likely to lie in Fibonnaci proportions and the derivation of the irrational number "e" - as used in civil engineering.

I think you are mistaken there Henry, there's no ad in a local "listings mag" it's a cartoon. I don't think the peasant sells anything to be advertising anyway does he? The snail is an ammonite Mark, referencing Gideon Mantell's connections with the town.

I'll take your word on that Humbert. BUT the cynic in me suspects that the snail must have been designed by the engineeers who built the tunnel and I know from maths that snail shells are very big with engineers. It's a calculus thing. I would imagine that whenever the chief engineer drives past (if he does ever) he probably smirks to himself thinking, "I told them I was honouring Gideon Mantell. That daft snail bloke! Dopey flaky Lewesians! Really I wanted to put a snail there because the proportions in a snail's shell can be used to approximate the value of the irrational number e.

who ever made the snail in whoever's image, it's bloody awful. I suspect it may be by some male artyste who has to compensate for something else with his enlargement of a tiny creature to such massive proportions.....
