Ten things mentioned in this Guardian article about the Glastonbury Festival that I had to look up:
- Ketamine (veterinary anesthetic used as a recreational drug)
- Alan Yentob (British television executive)
- Pete Doherty (English musician)
- Black's (UK sporting goods retailer)
- Cagoules (lightweight, short raincoats)
- Argos (UK catalogue retailer)
- The cast of Emmerdale (British soap opera)
- Phil Hogan (Guardian columnist, or possibly an Irish politician)
- Potakabin (trade name of a line of relocatable and modular buildings)
- Blag in (talk your way into a restricted area)
I'm still don't understand the Phil Hogan reference. Here's the context:
I bumped into a friend with kids and carried her daughter on my shoulders through half the Arctic Monkeys set, like I was Phil bloody Hogan or something.
I guess Phil Hogan is someone who is known for carrying children on his shoulders, but I'm utterly unable to ascertain how carrying a friend's daughter on one's shoulders makes one like either the columnist or the politican. Any thoughts?
