I get some fairly interesting propositions cross my path from time to time, especially from China, but this one is something of a wonder gadget by the looks of things.
One has to have sympathy with supermarkets that are forced into stating the blindingly obvious I guess – assuming this is a response to some legislative edict or other. But just for the avoidance of doubt shellfish contain shells, a natural extension to the usual statement on packets of nuts that they contain…errr…nuts.
Is it me, or does the ‘Police follow this van’ sign seen on the back of Group 4 cash trucks these days conjure up images of a Keystone Kops scenario in which the security wagon drives past, the boys in blue read the sign and immediately obey by running after it up the road, truncheons drawn at the ready?
It’s a slightly odd business, trying to take a picture with an iPhone in the gents at Waterloo station in London. I contemplated the folly of it for a moment or two. But the new signage above the urinals got the better of me.
Fortunately there was a lull in the steady flow of discharging vessels and so my snapping could not be overseen nor misunderstood (“it’s for my blog!” he was heard crying when lead away by British Transport Police).
