Default Who is "Jack"-warning -naughty words

Just a bit of fun and apologies for the naughty words, but who has signed himself Jack in this missive?

Nice answer. Spot on, Tracy!!

It did make me think of "Letters From Hell" when I saw it, and knowing he also published a poem called "Jack The Nipple:"The Singularge Experience of Miss Anne Duffield" I did wonder if he had been interested in the case.

Enjoy the cigar.

Hi Jon

Thanks

I didn't know that. I think it would indeed be a huge coincidence if not!!!

For those interested, the answer was John Lennon, who, in his poems referred to The Ripper as Jack The Nipple and Jock The Cripple.

I loved the 'alternate translation' - for those who couldn't figure out the original - only in England
