Rogue hedgehog alert!

"The unsettling case of the nude English doctors suggests to me that something akin to the South Uist rogue hedgehog scenario is happening with English stag parties in Ireland."

This line occurs on page 230 of Pete McCarthy's book McCarthy's Bar, and the remarkable thing is that in context, it makes perfect sense. If you want to know what the South Uist rogue hedgehog scenario is and how it might be akin to the scourge of nude English doctors, you'll have to read the book yourself. Therein you will encounter not just rogue hedgehogs but a menacing cow, a mouse that roars, a 21st-century Tweedledum, and a woman with "a voice that could bone herring at twenty fathoms." Very funny guy, Pete McCarthy. Very funny book.
