On this dreadfully wet and windy Thursday morning I feel suitably inspired to award my ultra prestigious "Prats of The Millennium" Award.
This millennium it goes to the QD Store in Stowmarket.
Just ask Lisa Innes, and her daughter Tia-Rose (aged 6).
Tia-Rose was helping her mother buy some Christmas crackers. Alas her help was rejected by the shop assistant, who refused to take the box from her on the grounds that Nanny has forbidden the sale of 'explosives' to children.
For you see loyal readers, the "snap" in the crackers contains explosives.
The sales assistant remain unmoved when it was pointed out that Tia-Rose's mother would actually be paying for them.
Ah commonsense (sigh), whatever happened to it?
The QD Store, well deserving Prats of The Millennium!
BTW, I remember as a lad buying "caps" (those tiny explosives that you put in toy guns and rockets). It was always hugely amusing to put several in the firing mechanism at one time, or indeed just to light the whole roll.
I assume they have long since been banned?
