Snake oil salesmen, you mean :lol: :oops:

Don't know if these snakes are dangerous or not, but pretty sure they could crush the living daylights out of you if they wanted to 8-[

So maybe a bit like some of these dangerous dogs - fine until they get angry :evil:

usually with dogs it is when they get over excited that they become dangerous.

even vultures have heard about the uk's spiking covid and are circling!

The bearded vulture, or lammergeier, is normally found in Alpine regions, and has a wing span of 2.5m (8.2ft).

You couldn't make it up

Coronavirus: Chester drive-in movie bogged down by lockdown loos

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-merseyside-54660888

Plans for a drive-in cinema in Chester were bogged down after the toilets were found to be across the border with Wales and subject to Welsh Covid rules.

The bathroom facilities at Chester FC cannot be used due to the new Covid-19 lockdown in Wales.

Anyone caught short would not have been allowed to cross the border.

A prison officer was dismissed after she "failed to notice" a sex offender was dead on the floor when unlocking his cell, a report said.

A sad day :sad:


McDonald's in Rutland: England's McDonald's-free county gets restaurant

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-leicestershire-54794623

England's only McDonald's-free county is no more, as a branch of the fast food chain opens its doors.

Rutland, in the East Midlands, had escaped the lure of the golden arches but plans to build a diner and drive-thru were approved in January.

The restaurant, based on the outskirts of Oakham, will move to a drive-thru only service on Thursday as the country goes into a second lockdown.

so they are opening the day before lock down #-o

If folks don't want a Big Mac then they have the option to not go and buy a Big Mac.

However for those that do, they now can.

I wonder if she understands the meaning of non essential travel now :roll:

Leicester woman fined for Wales trip to see horse

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-leicestershire-54793920

A woman from Leicester has been fined for breaching Covid lockdown rules by visiting a horse in Wales.

The Welsh 17-day "firebreak" lockdown came into force on 23 October, with a ban on non-essential travel among the restrictions.

Dyfed-Powys Police said the driver was stopped during routine checks in the Ceredigion area on Sunday.

She admitted she had undertaken the 320-mile round trip to see the animal and was given a fixed penalty notice.

The force could not confirm the amount the woman was fined. hopefully loads

sounds like someone who thinks her wealth and status put her above the rest of us :?:

She should have said she was going food shopping.
