I think you'll find it's *underneath* soon :)
Of course - that's to make room for the jellybeans.

The above sign reminds me of Halifax Bank. I once saw a Halifax in Spain, it had Howard Brown in the window as well (I do have some pictures of that Halifax but I think I will save them for another time).

Just been to Tesco and bought a 5l bottle of their own-brand water, used the self-serve till, and it scanned as...

T*WATER 5L

...thought it was quite funny.

I think the reference might be to the first four letters (ignored the asterisk)...

I figured as much and as such must tell steddenm that he's wrong in finding it funny.

It wasn't big nor was it clever.

I just realised how weird their naming gets. I bought penguins and they came up as F/Coated Bisc which is far less appealing.

Indeed, Penguins have a "chocolate flavoured coating" rather than chocolate.

I've just started reading a book called Tescopoly which I guess will encourage me to not shop at Tesco. It is just so bloody convenient to have them deliver everything I need to my kitchen for less money than it would cost me in petrol to drive there.

But I know it's wrong...

Don't look it up in a book: look it up in your gut. I did, and I'm fine with Tesco.
