Captian Henry float's Flea Circus

A Spanish flea expert Magic Puk has found a tin of fleas on a site about Cabinets of Curiosity that you can buy at a very reasonable price (currently £2.50).

It is not know if fleas can ride a penny farthing bicycle but it's a great image to have on the tin. Those holes look a little large so best not shake the tin as flea eggs might fall out!

There are several Mafeking Roads around London, from Newham (E16) to Haringey to Enfield and one in Australia. According to the dictionary Mafficking means "To rejoice or celebrate with boisterous public demonstrations" as was done following the siege of Mafeling in the Boer war.
