They curl under us snugly, but what are they really planning? I think I know, and - aaarghh!

State of the Pound
The pound is down 19 against a fascinated scuba diver ignorant of the anchor's unpromising plunge.

The BRITON'S SCIENCE has shewn that The Weekly, the magazine which strives to maintain Britain's standards, has topped* one million readers since 1871.

"I'd like to thank my staff of seven writers who... check... my spelling and do nothing else," said MR MILLINGTON of this mathematically inevitable achievement.

MR NASH added: "Scrape your flue, mister?"

* Though not, of course, in the sense of assassination. The Weekly has had cause to assassinate no more than its quota of readers.

I'm working off my shame
This chap's purchased an OFFICIAL THE WEEKLY T-SHAPED SHIRT and now he's working off his shame at indulging in such wasteful extravagance. You too may display similar penitence, and perhaps press hot coins guiltily into the hands of a stooped clerk for a copy of MR MILLINGTON's improving books Things About Which My Girlfriend And I Have Argued, A Certain Chemistry, Love and Other Near-Death Experiences and Instructions For Living Someone Else's Life, by patronising the The Weekly Corner Shop corner shop. Items despatched under plain wrapper, school-boys will be chased from the premises with a broom.

Britain's Heritage of Games
Game: Hair Hockey
Played chiefly in: Jedburgh.
Objective: Variation of air hockey in which the effect of an expensive, uniform air-cushion across the playing field is reproduced by dangling both players and puck from human hairs, which are near-invisible in normal lighting conditions.
Obstacles: Necessary scaffolding impedes informal and spontaneous nature of game. Best confined to playground climbing frame or unfinished building site.
Rating: Skilful.
