A while back I’ve mocked our work canteen for a dubious and pointless sign they’d put up to describe a dish. It turns out that unintentionally funny signs are their forte. I’m hereby starting what promises to be a recurring theme involving the stuff our canteen comes up with. Whenever I notice one of their [……]

Today James Harper walks us through some terrible…terrible cars.

We wake up at 7:00 and head down for breakfast at 7:50. We’re getting picked up at 8:30 so we should have plenty of time, right? Wrong!
