Colonel Mustard

If any of you have spent more than a few days in Oxford you will probably know about Colonel Mustard, the tap-dancing pensioner, usually seen sporting a fez and shuffling to the very loud sounds of a ghetto blaster. His real name is Alastair MacDonald, although he's also known as George Pirie but as Colonel Mustard I think of him as a true eccentric, and part of the fabric of the city. He's also 95 and missing, so let's hope someone is keeping an eye on him. The BBC news item is linked in the title.
