Cap Caps Capp Comeback

Behold, the Andy Capp statue, finally unveiled today in Hartlepool, England.

In what isn't even close to the oddest consequence of the country's smoking ban, which kicks in on Sunday, bronzed Andy is sadly the smokefree Capp of later years, which is something akin to celebrating Fat Elvis over his earlier, better self.

Though it's tough to tell in the photo, he's probably also drinking a mineral water, rather than an unhealthy pint of lager.
