I ate a lady's bun

I was sorry to learn - from a Telegraph obituary - that Ivor Cutler has died. I wasn't very familiar with his work, but Chris played me a track called "I ate a lady's bun" when I visited over the New Year and it was hilarious.
Among Cutler's recreations in later life was "dishing out sticky labels to deserving persons" - bus drivers, passers-by, supermarket check-out girls. One such read: "Add 15 inches to your stride and save 4½ per cent of insects."
You get the picture.
