Ernest Brough - A stitched backside

Running time
55 sec
Date made

So I had to go into hospital for awhile and I missed out there. I had to go down and see a doctor when we got out from the thing, had to go to the hospital for awhile and the healing, ‘cause you've got a lot of muscles in your backside, you see, and they weren't healing up and he said "I might put a stitch in there. Do you reckon you could stand up by the wall? Would it be alright to stitch it?"

He said, "You can have a drink from my whisky bottle if you like." I said, "Nah, I'll be right." And I thought afterwards I should have grabbed it and drank half of it. I was trying to be big and brave, see, so he tightened up my backside and away I went. I was getting ready to go again.
