A Samaritan in New York

by duncanr

it was bloody cold the other day – despite the central heating being on, I still had to don extra clothes in an attempt to keep warm

A 26 yr old New Jersey man who had rather too much to drink decided the best place to sleep off his drunken stupor was under a train platform in Woodside, Queens.

Now that I’ve explained the title of this post, you can guess how well that decision turned out !

by duncanr

Not so much a Subway Footlong sandwich then as a Sub Footlong sandwich !

Meanwhile women everywhere are rolling their eyes at all this fuss and muttering – never mind the length, what about the girth ! 😆

Tesco Virtual Shopping
