“It is not a coincidence for example, that one of the most obscene sketches in ‘Oh! Calcutta!’ was written by Joe Orton, who was brutally murdered by his boyfriend…” That set me thinking about non-coincidences.
‘It is not a coincidence, for example, that President Nixon likes cottage cheese with ketchup or that Aeschylus was killed by an eagle dropping a tortoise which landed on his head.
‘Once you start thinking that way, it’s hard to think of anything which is a coincidence.’
