Thank heavens for that. For a minute I thought they had snakes on the loose.

Looks like I've caught myself a rat.

KFCs have a new look. Don't suppose it will feature a Trotsky lookalike in red apron, do you? And here's a chance for me to gratuitously mention my favourite KFC fact: Many people think they changed their name from Kentucky Fried Chicken to KFC to sound more trendy. But in fact is was to dispense with the legal obligation to fry all of their chicken - at the same time they dispensed with the need for it to even be chicken.

We've seen this shop before. But the Christmas for less signs don't look so silly now as they did in August.

The rules of running a restaurant, number 2: No amount of balloons will ever compensate for a lack of customers. Of course rule number 1 is that England doesn't have the climate for a thriving pavement culture.

The Africa Crafts Centre - for all your traffic light needs.

Oi Liz, whilst you're doing your shopping can you get me some beer, and perhaps a big bucket of chicken from the Trotsky lookalike guy.

      Another of your fun sets to make us smile. Do you think Eternity65's shopping list is what Europeans now think of as traditional British food?!

      "Young man, you may follow the former colonies' road signs to celebrate my direct ancestor's birthday for less whilst avoiding the nasty C*mm*n*st quasi-chicken frier, the rat and the balloons, but don't forget to pay your taxes because my grace-and-favour hangers-on need housing."
