Funny things

I saw two things on the way into work this morning that made me smile just a little. One was Winnie the Pooh stickers on someone's steering wheel - and not just little stickers that had been left on there, these were obviously designed to fit the exact size and shape of a steering wheel.

Presumably stickers that cover both sides of a steering wheel need to be designed to not slip or come off in some dangerous way as well as being tested for safety generally. So I just had to wonder that there must be a significant number of people willing to buy Winnie the Pooh stickers for steering wheels to make it economically viable for a manufacturer to go to all that trouble. Of course they probably have other designs ... must find out what these are at some point.

The other thing was quite striking; a tartan truck! Pretty eye-catching in itself but the wording on the side proudly proclaimed "Men in Kilts", "North America's Premier window cleaning and guttering service". Since this really did make me smile they can have some free advertising here:

I've just followed the link and they even claim they do all the cleaning in kilts! I can't say anything to top that!
