No pajamas

How come stuff like this never happens to me?

Retired doctor Mr Leigh-Brown, 67, said he picked up the DVD of The Pajama Game, which was sealed in plastic wrapping, for £2.99 from the bargain bin of a Safeway supermarket in Taunton.

"Some topless young women appeared and started talking in Italian... it's not what you expect from a Doris Day film," Mr Leigh-Browne said. "My wife and I were very shocked but we watched it until the end because we couldn't believe what we were seeing.

As you do, of course. If this wasn't on the BBC website I'd assume that someone had made it all up.

The couple, regular attendees at their local Baptist church, settled down with a cup of tea to watch the 1957 musical which has a U (universal) certificate.

Do you think tea bags can make a really NICE cup of tea?


Dear Lars,

Sorry to shatter your illusions, but the only tea I drink these days is Chinese tea, so I can't help you on this one.

Incidentally, when I was at school we were taught that 'nice' meant 'exact' (as in 'a nice distinction between satire and schoolboy humour') not 'pleasant' or 'agreeable'.
