    Haha, that's brilliant. She's quite serious too by the looks of things.

  3. the good engines pump out white smoke and the bad engines pump out black smoke – and they are all pumping out smoke – it's not hard to make the leap into the race territory.

    She didn't mention the quite appalling safety record of the railway. At least 1 major incident every week?! HSE would have a field day on Sodor - certainly over reliant on the sentience of their locomotives which isn't good practise on a rail network.

    A court has rejected a 60-year-old man's attempt to invoke the ancient right to trial by combat, rather than pay a £25 fine for a minor motoring offence.
    Leon Humphreys remained adamant yesterday that his right to fight a champion nominated by the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) was still valid under European human rights legislation. He said it would have been a "reasonable" way to settle the matter.
    Magistrates sitting at Bury St Edmunds on Friday had disagreed and instead of accepting his offer to take on a clerk from Swansea with "samurai swords, Ghurka knives or heavy hammers", fined him £200 with £100 costs.
    Humphreys, an unemployed mechanic, was taken to court after refusing to pay the original £25 fixed penalty for failing to notify the DVLA that his Suzuki motorcycle was off the road.
    After entering a not guilty plea, he threw down his unconventional challenge. Humphreys, from Bury St Edmunds, said: "I was willing to fight a champion put up by the DVLA, but it would have been a fight to the death."

    He said the agent later apologised via text message, claiming that he had been suffering from dizziness and needed the sugar in the chocolate bar


    'Arry Redknapp came up with a better excuse than that.

    Salisbury wasn't like that last week when I was there - a somewhat boring visit really
    This season is step two on the road to redemption

    Sivero is claiming the money on the grounds of the producers appropriating his “confidential idea” for the character, as well as for “loss of likeness” and being subsequently typecast. He also claims that Gracie Films, The Simpsons’ production company, promised him that he “would be part of the future” and that they would make a film together, which never transpired.

    At what point did someone go "I've a great idea" & someone else agreed with them?
