Humorous of course, but also a hint at Finlay's combative and defensive view of the world (although the major battles lay ahead in 1980) but by now he had already had a legal battle with Fulcrum Press (which was bankrupted over the issue) and had pulled his work from a Scottish Arts Council show in this same year when he felt insufficiently supported by them.
