The Waist Land - Only £5?


Dedicated Member
In The Waist Land, there is a brilliant little scene with guest star Hugh Lloyd, where he craves a pork pie.

After a magnificent speech about pork pies, he demands to be quoted a ridiculous, extortionate, inflationary price for a pork pie.

Yet Compo only asks for £5.

Still a very expensive pork pie for 1982-1983, yet he really could have asked for so much more.
