Ihave an idea that I might pitch to Dragon’s Den – pre-written postcards.
Here’s why it’s a good idea. Because everybody types now, our handwriting has become less and less legible.
So when we come to write our postcards on holiday, the stuff we put is really hard to read, and in lots of cases, the people getting them don’t even know who they’re from.
Also, we always write the same old stuff. It’s ‘Weather is blah blah blah’ and ‘We went to blah blah blah’.
The postcards may as well be typed out ready for you.
All you have to do is sign your name. A postcard sent from a British resort would have: ‘Weather shocking, had chips nicked by a seagull, going out to get leathered tonight.’
And you’d do different ones for each country. I reckon it’s a winner.
So Rolls-Royce is to sponsor the British Bloodhound project, the aim of which is to drive a car faster than 1,000mph.
I can’t understand why they think this is going to be a success , considering the name.
Do yourself a favour and Google a picture of a bloodhound. Nothing that’s named after one of those is ever going to travel very fast!
They should have called it Project Greyhound, or Project Whippet if it’s in the North. They may as well have named it ‘Project Tortoise’!
In other recent news, King and Messiah are becoming popular names for baby boys in America.
Don’t you think that’s a bit crazy? For one thing, it’s giving the child an awful lot to live up to because if they don’t grow up to be either a monarch or the son of God their lives are going to be deemed as a bit of a failure.
Plus, you’re really tempting fate. I mean, if you call your son Messiah, it’s odds on that he’s going to end up ‘a very naughty boy’!
