I forget what my first licence plates were in California, but one was stolen.  I called the police and they advised to take the other off, as I had reported the plates missing and it was better to be pulled over politely that be aggressively held up at gun point for driving with stolen plates.

I know of someone who reported his plates stolen (in the UK.) He later found them down the street where he lived, presumably having been removed by waggish drunks. He fixed them back on his car and drove off to meet a friend. He was stopped by the police within a few minutes, who had recorded that the car itself was stolen. They searched the car, found a quantity of ketamine and surmising that he was not a vet, arrested him. He lost his job as an accountant and was sentenced to two years in prison. He served 12 months inside, emerged a fairly broken man and has been unemployed ever since.

Some actress from Geordie Shore (whatever that is), fell off a balcony and died in Brighton, the coroners report was released yesterday and it says her blood had large amounts of Cocaine and Ketamine in it.

375 people voted UKIP across all the Wards in Salisbury. I came close to beating them on my own.

Better than the Tim Burton version, but both fall short of enjoyment I got from the book.

And I think 'Hot Shots!' is a better 'Top Gun' than 'Top Gun'. :biggrin:

I think you'll find that was your Lunch.

And Teacakes have raisins in them.

That is all

The word you're looking for is barm cake. This culinary delight is known as a Wigan kebab.

At the dentist waiting on anaesthetic to take effect before he removes a tooth nerve. Lovely.

You were at the dentists at two thirty?

Ancient (and slightly racist) joke alert!

I used to be a baker. My parents were both bakers. A batch is a very different thing to a barm cake.

Remember, it's only the regional bickering about what it is called (i.e. what I call it v all the wrong names) that has kept the country too busy for a civil war since 1651.
