Humour

Humour

It is with great sadness that I have to mention the loss of a few
further local businesses. The bra manufacturer has gone bust,
the specialist in submersibles has gone under, the
manufacturer of food blenders has gone into liquidation, the
dog kennels have had to call in the retrievers, the supplier of
paper for origami enthusiasts has folded, the Heinz factory has
been canned as they couldn’t ketchup with orders, the tarmac
laying company has reached the end of the road, the bread
company has run out of dough, the clock manufacturer has had
to wind down, the Chinese has been taken away, the shoe shop
owner has had to put his foot down and given his staff the
boot, the launderette has been taken to the cleaners! The pet
shop has gone to the dogs, the butcher’s had the chop, and the
greengrocer’s is in a vegetative state. The Venetian blind shop
has closed, so it’s curtains for us all. The wallpaper shop’s taken
a pasting and the fishmonger’s been battered, the florists are
now pushing up the daisies. The milkman’s lost his bottle and
finally, the bread man’s toast.
