53 - Church Outing 1987 (Private Eye)
"Private Eye" 27 November 1987
"Private Eye"'s contribution to the commentary. Overlooked by all the other cartoonists is that the General Synod was to be an opportunity to discuss positions on AIDS. "Mates" is a real brand of condom, and condom ads were a new shocking addition to British life at this time.
Its image of three-in-a-bed is unusual. Although this gag is basically a slightly more up-market and intellectual take on "Pulpit Poofs must stay"
