DVC gets Private Eye treatment

Private Eye issue 1159 arrived yesterday with some amusing items on the Da Vinci Code.

I-Spy has a photo of a sign put up opposite the Rosslyn Chapel, offering "Da Vinci" horse manure at 50p a bag.

There is a spoof advert (New from Gnome!) for "The Da Vinci Trouser Press",
The Trouser Press that Christ's descendants would have used if he had fathered a child and gone to live in Boulogne. Enjoy the biggest mystery of the last 2000 years while steaming your favourite trousers.
There is also a code to solve - "A Mad Nine Wait" (made in Taiwan).

Underneath this item is a cartoon with the caption "Hollywood Movies You Won't See". The film billed is "The Mohammed Code".

Then in "Books and Bookmen", Snipcock and Tweed are walking home after the film.
"The film's certainly faithful to the book"
(next frame)
"It's absolutely terrible"
"Silly, preposterous and unbelievable - and that's just Tom Hanks' hair"
The current issue doesn't feature on the Private Eye website yet. When it does, I'll link to any of the cartoons they feature there.
