Heard in the check-out queue

The woman in front of me at the check out said to the cashier, 'This is a replacement broccoli', and brandished a large head of broccoli florets. The cashier nodded knowingly.

Whatever could have happened to that first broccoli batch to bring about the need of a free replacement?

I will never know, but this link on the cancer-protecting benefits of broccoli seemed quite interesting. I borrowed the picture from here so I'll make a donation to the excellent Macmillan Cancer Support in lieu of picture fees and hope that's OK with the website.

Setting the tone for the New Year ahead - much more fun!

This should definitely be a feature on the London Underground. We'd arrive at our destinations in such a good mood. Roll on 2011 and much, much more fun than 2010.

Many thanks to the Going Underground blog for leading me to this. It made me laugh.
