    No. If I want cheap toilet paper I'd go to Tesco.

    In Peterborough there seems to be one pretty much every 4 or so shops but Southend there isn't. .At least that person put at least a little bit of effort in, all the ones I've seen just mumble "bigshu" in some hope that we take pity on them.

    Instead we just get people coming up to us going "WOAH THERE SIR! Can I just stop you to tell you that right now an orphan is dying?". Ah well there's no point seeing you just told me, arsehole.

    Anyone remember that Fast Show bit with Colin saying "bless you" next to someone selling it?

    I have to listen to it every time I'm coming back from school or go to town, the only thing I don't get is why they wear the bibs. IT'S BASICALLY BEGGING cos they always sell an outdated issue round here.
