5 July, 2004: Where there's muck....

[ Home page | Web log ]

So, I went to deepest darkest Essex for the day. In fact it was most pleasant, if a bit muddy. Anyway, on an entirely trivial note, I saw a rubbish bin on the side of which the word


was written in enormous letters. Below, in much smaller print, the notice continued,

Another Great Product From Granby Ltd.

Obviously it meant the bin, not the rubbish; but I was confused for a moment.

(I'm not sure whether this, err, observation is splendid or nonsense -- it would be silly for it to be rubbish -- but I'm sure my half-dozen readers will enlighten me.)
