obscenity! noddy!

Just read the latest League of Extraordinary Gentlemen annotations, which informed me that I am not so much of a geeky pop culture expert as I thought! Because it seems that I missed a blatant reference to the subject of my bloody Master's thesis - the hideous Rupert Bear having sex with an old gypsy woman is a reference to the obscene Rupert parody in Oz magazine which kicked off the infamous obscenity trial - which is pretty shameful, condsidering I once wrote 25,000 words on Oz and the trial.

However, I don't feel too bad, because Jess Nevins did not recognise Noddy (who was refered to in the almanac at the back), which seemed like the most obvious reference of the whole thing to me. Heh heh heh (that was a smug laugh).
