Second hand bargain: A curious mug

Published: 13th May, 2009

The greatest Royal couple remembered…


Such is the nature of this crippling financial downturn that once packed-to-the-gills restaurants are now just ghostly cobwebbed dining rooms. Orders echo to such an extent that there is no need for waiters and waitresses any more – customers just whisper their requests on entering the restaurant, and two minutes later the words drift into the ears of a sleeping chef.  He snaps to attention, boils whatever bag they have asked for, then they collect it themselves. These are curious, disturbing times. Which is why we go totally out of our minds whenever we hear about fantastic bargains. Just yesterday great friend Anna stumbled across something really quite unusual in her nearby Save The Children. “I’ve never been a huge fan of the Royals,” she confessed, impatiently snapping her fingers to signal that more Vermouth was needed, “but I’ve always had a bit of a soft spot for Andrew and Fergie, they just seemed so rebellious, so when I saw a cup with their faces on it, I grabbed it!” Agreed there Anna, as the Royals go, they definitely were the best – she is still an amazing woman. Totally bananas. So come on, how much for this bizarre luxury? “Two quid!”

And worth every penny! Fantastic sticking-it-to-the-recession!
