Musings on a menu seen yesterday.
Sounds like good value, see the last few posts for the full picture, or just this one.
Gravy?

Ooooops!

OooopsHealth and safety, there it is in a nutshell. There’s nothing really very funny about slipping with a hot cup tea but somehow a cartoon makes it seem ‘different’. A little like the violence on Tom and Jerry, it’s not quite the same. I’ve done a lot of cartoons on ‘health and safety’ over the years and this one dates back quite a few years, so many that I forget who the client was.Probably a building company that used to commission cartoons about safety for them. I hope that they had some effect or someone’s slipped up.

A fine piece of sign writing.

This in a shop window just before Christmas.
The vacancy can’t have been for long as the shop, which sold utter tat, has now closed.
One of those places where you might buy a shirt in a box and find no arms on it when you open it on Christmas day, or even worse, someone else does. You would , of course return and expect an exchange or money back, but tough, that outlet has now gone.
I’m no expert at English, and grammar is not my strong point, but you can see from this that whoever did it was not entirely confident either.
