Springhead "Rupert's Ruin"


Springhead "Rupert's Ruin"

As Rupert Murdoch has been in the news just a bit recently, a bit of topical newspaper-magnate baiting would be understandable. But no, what do we have here? Rupert Bear.

So what's it trying to say? The much-loved children's character Rupert Bear was afflicted by alcoholism, particularly a fondness for Springhead's beer?

Perhaps we are supposed to "geddit".

"Rupert eh, you think we mean the bear, but really it's Murdoch. Hur hur snurfle snurfle."

Nah, it's just bollocks.
