Facebook is advertising a local eatery named Balkan Taste.

Why do I think 'Baulk and Taste'?

A former factory building round the corner from Larrington Towers is getting the full treatment from a gang of rufty-tufty hairy-arsed builders, to which end there is a portaloo outside same.  The said khazi belongs to an outfit yclept “Tardis”.  I know the things vaguely resemble a phone box but is it bigger on the inside than the outside?  Are those odd groaning noises heard when it’s in operation the result of [“I don’t think we really need to pursue that one” – Ed.]?  Have some, or more, of the rufty-tufty hairy-arsed builders fetched up in a distant star system (this would go some way to explaining why the work is taking so long)?  And how did they resist the temptation to call themselves “Turdis”?

Saw a dog grooming van around Sheffield called "snip doggy dog'

A local hair salon near me is called scissor sisters, sadly they've only ever cut hair when I've been in.
