Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

Comments Bad things have been happening to the male anatomy this week, with torchings and glueings being sustained. Well-known extensions (cars and guns) get a fair mention too. We begin with a sticky situation.

Captain Dan the Demon Dwarf (that noted performer) has attached himself by the danglies to a vacuum cleaner. The DIY gluing mishap landed the poor fellow in A&E. At least one of you was reminded of juvenile experimentation:

As every schoolboy knows (ahem), you simply set the thing to Blow instead of Suck.

I hope he got his bag emptied while he was at it !

It was embarrassing in front of "a packed A&E", does that imply his stage show plays to a smaller audience than you find in casualty?

Or is dicking the Dyson somehow less cringeworthy in front of a paying crowd?

Hi Ho, Hi Ho, off to A&E we go

Do the Shake-n-Vac and put your manhood back!

No wonder the Shake-n-Vac woman always looks so happy! (and all these years I though it was valium...)

Good job it wasn't a Ewbank, can you imagine the damage the brushes would have done!

A high-flying tycoon in the field of jet-setting found himself "too busy" to collect his £80k Maserati Cambiocorsa from a London car pound, and has run up £5k worth of congestion and parking fines. Those of you with less money than you'd like were a little miffed:

To paraphrase a line from Friends: "Oh, i don't have time to get my Maserati from the impound, my wallet's too small for my 50s and my diamond shoes are too tight..."

Its cheaper to be towed than park! Should I ever have to go to that cess pool again I will drive straight to the pound and leave my car there

They should have SAID they crushed it. Then enjoyed their new garage-car! It reminds me of the Ferrari in "Ferris Bueller's Day Off".

Frankly, its a missed opportunity, instances of supercars being parked illegally probably would have plumeted drastically, if a Youtube video had appeared of a Maseratti being crushed by TFL.

So now any one with a nice expensive car and or no tax, gets 3 months of cheap parking when towed.

TFL should have crushed the car like any other, and then inform the chap his cube is ready to be collected.

At the very least TFL missed out on a nice earner from the auction.

Annoyed tax payer.
