Carrier Bag Man

In Manchester (and presumably most ex-industrial cities in the north of England), there exists a certain species of humanoid often overlooked by mainstream media – the Carrier Bag Man.

Like some lost soul from a Lowry painting, these mysterious characters shuffle down dark alleyways with plastic bags clasped firmly in their fleshy talons. No one knows where they come from, no one knows where they’re going, and even less know what lies inside those mysterious polyethylene receptacles.

But things change, and thanks to the recent laws regarding supermarkets and plastic bags, the elusive carrier bag man has had to adapt to modern times. Shame really, Tote Bag Man doesn’t have quite the same ring to it.

The Carrier Bag Man is 6'2" and wears…
