What sort of nails did the tough kid who swallows nails swallow?
I'd always though it meant metal nails (for nailing wood), which would indeed be tough, but also pretty masochistic, and probably fatal so not something to be done repeatedly (or 'sometimes'). I've always been confused by the...
Right, I think I'm ready to draw my conclusions.
Given the ease in which Michael Fagan got in, I think it's just a quick nod to/stab at lack of security. The fact that the spanner was rusty, combined with the sponge makes it sound like you can get in there with any old piece of junk.
She's being critical. (Otherwise the next line wouldn't make sense.)
I do like the idea of the sponge being a cake, I'd not thought of that at all.
But I don't think that's what he meant, it makes even less sense.

It would've made more sense, for example, to say 'rope and rusty spanner'.

Why did Morrissey break into the palace with a sponge and a rusty spanner?

Also got a Bigmouth UK 7" though I guess most peeps on here already have this. Comes with a pretty picture though. :)...
It's possibly my fave of all his albums, an opinion which has always been controversial among friends.
It suffers from shit production, yeah, but there isn't really a duff song on there (ok, possibly Harsh Truth of the Camera Eye). I sometimes wonder if ever anyone will go back and do a Raw...
1 day left on the Your Arsenal tour shirt - still under a tenner! This is an original tour shirt by the way, not a reproduction/bootleg.
Plus there's still loads of other low price odds & ends going...
