Ain't no sunshine

Holly S had to hit Pause the other morning to convince herself she wasn't seeing double.


I hope the extra h meant extra hot.

Hahve a nihce day.

Senior Service

Here's a menu from Greg L who was amused to read about the service The Mill Pond provides for its older patrons.


Go often enough and 'your next special event' might well be a funeral.

How low can you go?

We go back to Tesco today for another review of its pricing policy.


It just goes to show that, as far as its customers are concerned, Tesco doesn't give a fig.

Literally.

Candid camera

We have both John H and Trevor L to thank for today's gem.

I'm not sure what they put in those lithium batteries but, when you're powered by them, you'll always be ready.


I guess they must be Duracell batteries.

You know.

The ones that keep you going and going.

Digital beat

Greg L was on board ship when he heard someone tapping out a reggae beat on the other side of an air-lock door.


He got over it though.

He was able to improvise.

Capital lettering

Here comes Jon C with another one from Palo Alto, CA.


If the custom clothes Sue Young designed were anything like her custom lettering, then it's no wonder the shop closed down.

Weak end in Liverpool

Emma C is thinking about having a break in Liverpool.

She needs to be careful.

With Living Social, it could end up being pretty crappy.

In the limelight again

Ever bought a lemon?

Well, here's a chance to buy two. While Tesco laughs all the way to the bank.

Thanks to Amy S who spotted this at her shop in Middlesbrough.


Leaving the locals with nothing but a bitter taste.

Passed and failed

All the way from New Zealand comes this picture from Clarke V who's photographed next to a sign marking the start of the ski fields in Queenstown, NZ which suggests that no vehicles have ever been beyond it.


Or maybe the point didn't match the vehicles' expectations.

Or perhaps they didn't hand it to someone else.

Whatever the case, it's a sad pass.

Font failure

How's this for a graphic message?


I wonder. Would that be your Aunt Fanny?

Hats off to Em J for this.

I think I might send him a thank you card.

Strip tease

I found this photo of nasal strips for sale at Dedrick's over on themetapicture.com

Notice anything about the Breathe Right Extra strips on the right?

Yes, you've got it. Not only do they help you 'Breathe Even Better', they also relieve you of your wife.


So the way this works, and the reason he's breathing even better and sleeping more soundly, is because he's not being constantly elbowed in the ribs by someone telling him to shut up.

True story.

Freudian slip

Dan Patrick, the supposed staunchly anti-gay Texas senator, nailed his surprising rainbow colours firmly to the mast last week.

He was intending to tweet his opposition to a federal court Judge's ruling that a ban on same-sex marriage was unconstitutional.

But, in an apparent change of heart, the self-proclaimed 'Christian first, Conservative second, and Republican third' senator immediately published this ringing endorsement.


It's not the first time that the sexual preferences of Mr Patrick, who has been married for 38 years, have been called into question.

Looks like a nice man to me.


Not sure about the teeth though. Or the lazy left eye. Or the toupée for that matter.

All this puts me in mind of the famous admission by George Bush Sr.
