The Famous Five meet two new friends

thewife and theboy are reading their way through the collected books of the The Famous Five series by Enid Blyton. 

I just heard the names "Dick, Nobby and Pongo" all used and in context.


Dick, Nobby and Pongo sounds like a dark series set in a '60s boarding school and the savagery that dwells within a cloistered environment riven with absurd notions of masculinity; being able to wear a tie properly, do sport and to turn up to chapel on time.

All of which I failed to do or do properly. 

Thank fuck I was not a boarder; poor, sad fuckers. All boys private schools; you pay good money to damage your child.

(Gnome accent) Well that went dark; and it all started off so nicely, too.
