    Reading the ‘bubble’ post, i think that “Super Cockle” deserves his own thread.

    A lovely chap who had to endure the question “Have you got crabs?” in every pub.

    He was sometimes followed by the Salvation Army collecting money but i don’t think they were a team.

    To be born Welsh is to be born privileged, not with a silver spoon in your mouth, but with music in your blood, and poetry in your soul.

    His name was Harry and what people didn’t know he was a black belt 3rd Dan in Karate. I always remember running a local quiz and he came in selling his produce and one of the team nicknames was ‘ Hey Cockle Man, come over here and rub some vinegar on this muscle ‘ which I proceeded to read out on the mic ( you can imagine the laughter ‘

    Beedar, you are a card! :)

    Super Cockle sold Kershaws sea food if I remember correctly. I used to love his cockles.

    Didn’t he used to have Super Cockle on the back of his overall…

    The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.

    Yes, he was Super Cockle! He was a real local superhero.
