The World Is Definitely Insane

Knitwits Yarns

I have a brief update on yesterday's blog:-

The lad who can drive a car, father children (although not marry the mother without parental consent), defend and, indeed, die for his country but cannot - at the tender age of 17 - buy plastic knives and forks from a well known supermarket - remember him? - well he gave G a quick update yesterday.

On the same shopping trip when he wasn't allowed to buy plastic knives and forks for a party, he was allowed to buy the barbecue coal and firelighters. Clearly, arson isn't considered a problem for our teenage population.

As our cousins across the pond would say - go figure ................................

Trying to work out what exactly they think he's going to do with the plastic knives and forks is almost giving me sleepless nights.


  1. I'm still trying to work out what exactly they thought I was going to do with 1 small box of matches, when I was asked for my ID at the local mini supermarket. I'm 33 but obviously I look young and ready to set fire to a bus shelter...

  2. Todays post and tinebeest's comment have really made me chuckle!!
