Stayed in a hotel last night - I thought this was an awesome bit of copy checking from someone prior to printing.

Other than the obvious, the copyright message also says "(C) (current year)".

Basil, you know those new no smoking signs? Have you had a look at what they actually say?
Yes dear. It's in Latin. For all the important guests. The important guests from the Vatican.

Smoking cormorants a predilection du côté de chez toi?

And: there's a line in L.A. Confidential where Kevin Spacey asks a secretary to shag a reverse telephone directory.

That junction is a bit horrid at the best of times.
I had the misfortune to take a Motor-Car into town yesterday, and that set of roadworks had caused the most monumental gridlock I've ever seen!

It was the same on the way home yesterday, Market Street nortbound. Fortunately I was cycling so could just pootle up between the lines of static vehicles.

It took my boss 2 hours to get home past that the other night, a journey of 30 mins for me on the bike (although not on that shitty road). Arf,

This week in stickers on the back of cars:

"Disco is not dead", sadly not on a clapped-out 90s Land Rover.

"Eat, Sleep, Dressage"  (I'd no idea it was an endurance sport.)
