Before you ask, no I didn't, they were too small.
Were they yellowed? Have you been following Hummers again?
The unwilling rider and the one who leaves each control in turn without reluctance, with no desire to come back, obviously cannot be making the same journey, even though their brevets are identical.

Heads or tails?

Looks like a £2 coin, but considering how bashed about it is, I wonder if it is counterfeit?



I wonder what the precise test for 'still acceptable tender' is; if you handed that in at the Bank of England, would they give you a new one in return?

After squinting at it, consulting a senior colleague and weighing it, a Barclays cashier accepted it this morning and my account is now better off to the tune of £2.

zOMG! Perhaps that's the secret of Blodwyn Pig's amazing findyness. He doesn't actually ride along at 3mph scanning the verges and gutters with action man eyes, nor does he benefit from an unknown someone or someones riding ahead of him leaving stuff in readiness; no, he nicks it from somewhere (his shed, most likely) and drops it himself!!! Genius findsmanship there, Blodders!
