When cultural references go haywire

IMG_7829 So there I was in Edinburgh this week, mum and dad were up so we went and had a look round the city centre as they’d never been there before, and I came across this sculpture outside St Giles’ Cathedral. It’s a snippet of a quote from the 3 Witches in Macbeth. As I read it I found myself wanting to carry on the quote further in my head, but in a bizarre mixing of cultural metaphors what came out was:

“Double, double, toil and trouble, Cuthbert, Dibble, Grubb”.

(there’s one for the 70s kids among us :O)
