Panic buying!

The Greatest British Eccentric of the Year Contest. London 2009
I'd just like to say a big 'thank you' to those selfish and greedy panic buyers who've been rushing about the place like demented chickens, stuffing huge bags to the brim with bread and milk, without the slightest thought for the rest of us!
The only option left open to our family, is to soak the small original copy of this rare photograph (see above) in tepid water and share it out (equally) among the twelve of us. It will not taste quite as good as toast, but it will keep us going during this cold snap.
Here's hoping that fresh supplies of bread will arrive before this once cherished photograph has been completely devoured.

  1. I'm with you on this one!
    I had to walk 3 miles to my local shops in near blizzard condition's to try and get bread and milk for my family. I got there only to find nothing on the shelves! it was as tho' a heard of cattle had been threw the store.
    So i had to walk back the three miles and explain to my two year old that the shelves were empty and that she would not be able to have her milk tipple or her toast and marmalade!
