Gimme Gimme Gimme

Did you enjoy the over the top TV sitcom starring Kathy Burke as a man-chasing slob and James Dreyfus as a man-chasing fusspot? If so, this pic of a car that parked outside my house recently may be of interest.

Circumstances have forced me to spend more time than I would like in Northwick Park Hospital, Harrow. But you can always find a lighter moment somewhere. Have a look at this noticeboard, stationed in one of the main corridors and see if you can spot the (I'm sure it must be) deliberate mistake.

Scene: a London Underground station set amidst the lush green of a park. It is chilly and it has been raining on and off for several days. Right now it is bucketing down and water is splashing off the duckboards and dripping down the windows of the little waiting room.

Loudspeaker announcer: "During this hot weather we recommend that you carry a bottle of water".

Two incredulous travellers (played by Mrs. Commuter and self roll their eyes to the uncomprehending heavens).

End of scene.  Based on a true incident earlier this month. All names have been cunningly disguised to protect the guilty.

Yes thank you, LU. What do you do for an encore? Announce the winners of the 1923 Grand National?
