A short children's bedtime story

LORD SCRUMPTIOUS:  "This is the best thing I have seen since the last thing you made for me! Please accept this cheque for £1000!"

ME:  "Thank you, Lord Scrumptious."

LORD SCRUMPTIOUS:  "Tell me, young fella-me-lad, what are you going to spend all that money on?"

ME:  "Maintaining my Volvo Estate, Lord Scrumptious."

Good night.


  1. " drugs are dangerous children...remember that"

  2. I've just heard an ad' for Volvo cars (on LBC) saying that their cars are designed for the UK's narrow, bumpy roads, and are also priced to suit the UK's failing economy. Not really the way to sell cars methinks, and one can but wonder if they've ever visited the place. Advertise one that can jump traffic jams, and they might be onto something.

    1. That sort of advertising criteria never did Citroen 2CVs any harm.
