Buralists

image

I stumbled on this room in my hotel Last night,  laid out for a training session today. But what subject are they training? I read “burialist” and pictured the person who operates the shovel in a cemetery. However it turns out these are the people who sell cigarettes: tobacconists.

Twickenham

Formerly a market garden where cabbages were grown, and now the home of the English Rugby Football Union.

Wikipedia tells us that Twickenham Stadium is:

the largest stadium in the world devoted solely to the sport of rugby union, the 2nd largest stadium in the UK after Wembley Stadium and the 4th largest stadium in Europe.

Purely aweful

image

This is possibly the worst-tasting bottled water I have ever drunk. I see that they add ingredients to the water.

OV14VWD - Another day, another MGIF

This is not a dangerous driver, just an inconsiderate one.  If you aren’t tailgating the car in front then the driver behind always wants to overtake. They like to use extra fuel accelerating, and to cause extra wear and tear on their brakes. And there seems to be nothing wrong with overtaking you and then braking immediately.

* MGIF = Must Get In Front.
