"with a mug of beer and a six-month-old copy of Punch"

Punch magazine was founded in 1841 by Henry Mayhew and Ebenezer Landells.  It contained a collection of satirical cartoons and drawings.  The magazine closed in 1992 due to a decline in popularity but was briefly resurrected by Mohamed Al-Fayed in 1996.
