Thanks very much to the anonymous correspondent who has just sent us a lovely e-card from sunny Aberdeen. This kindness was provoked by today's very silly piece regarding Carmarthenshire County Council's website.

Well, it's not just the Welsh who are prone to Net howlers, as Aberdeen City Council proved when they put the following story up in September 2002.

Under the eye-catching headline "Review Of Toilets In Aberdeen's Parks", the good burghers of said city expand thus:

A city-wide study of future toilet provision in Aberdeen's parks is planned by City Council officials.

The review is set to take place following a motion by Councillor John Porter.

Superb. Keep 'em coming. ®
