It's easy to fall into a FB Marketplace vortex and browse the incredible things for sale there.  The above is my favourite today.

If you're not on FB...I don't suggest you register just to look at the crapola  ;D

I like the one of Trevor and Little Mo.  I'd hang that in my hallway to scare Jehovah's Witnesses.

Rog, I'm pretty sure the mods have rules about people trying to sell their stuff outside the classified. Behave.

Many years ago I knew the soundman from Eastenders. Naturally I asked him what the actors were like in real life and he said they were surprisingly similar to their fictional characters. Sharon was lovely and bubbly, Grant Mitchell a really nice guy, but Phil Mitchel a miserable unfriendly a-hole. He described Ian Beale in the most unflattering terms, something along the lines of a snivelling shit.

Ross Kemp is a proper luvvie in real life. Totally at odds with the hardman image.

Never met Adam Woodyatt but have heard he’s a bit of a prick.

Surely we can't have a thread like this without giving honourable mention to the tireless army of misguided fools across the land that buy any old tat furniture, paint it with Farrow and Ball paint, bash it about a bit then think they'll make a killing on it by calling it "shabby chic". No it isn't, its grandma's wobbly old sideboard that was ready for the skip, painted in overpriced emulsion, badly, then knocked about.

It's shit, all of it. I have to wonder if these people actually manage to turn a profit. Judging by the number of adverts for part used tins of F&B, I guess not.

Just remembered another. Dean Gaffney who played Robbie and had Wellard the dog.

Apparently he was on the point of being sacked because he kept turning up late or not at all, having been out shagging. This was 1995 and I see now that he was sacked a couple of years ago for some sort or prurient behaviour.

Adam looks quite happy to be having his tit felt-up by a scary baby.

I believe it is a triathlon bike with the kickstand included to allow social distancing in transition area. Vital grams have been saved by avoiding handlebar tape.

You've never been to Scotland when the sun's out(ish) and the rains off have you.

It's literally called "taps aff" weather.
The women are usually more cautious abiut it though.

It's a drag bike. In both senses: it's a triathlon bike dressed up as a tourer, a commuter dressed up as a time trials bike, or... take your pick. But it's also a drag bike because the photos show the bottled gas propulsion system!
