Way Up North

“Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them?”
(William Shakespeare, Hamlet III/i 1599)

“Shoot that poison arrow to my ha-ha-heart”
(ABC, Poison Arrow 1982)

“‘arrow on the ‘ill”
(Posh bit o’ London, innit)

The East Finchley Archer (above) fires his bolt down the world's 5th longest tunnel (the Northern Line). Back in the day (1940s) it used to be the longest.
