Bored in Asda, I picked up a pre-pack of bananas costing £1 and decided to weigh them.
Guess what! They were only 54p!!!!!
Have I uncovered Banana gate?

TODAY is the day we’ve all been waiting for with bated breath: Lincolnshire Day.
Yup, that’s the new date on the calendar to run aside such worthies as National Toilet Tank Repair Month and Incontinence Week.
The county flag will be flown on all public buildings to celebrate the anniversary of the Lincolnshire Rising, in 1536.
Now for anyone who’s not aware of the Lincolnshire Rising, this was a revolt by the Catholics against the establishment of the Church of England by Henry VIII.
It all went something like as follows.
Lincs folk: “We demand you leave our churches and their treasures alone.”
King: “No! Go away!”
Lincs folk: “All right then.”
With that they departed with the monarch mumbling something about a brute and beastly shire and their heirs shall pay for their MPs’ moats to be cleaned.
In other words, the spineless leaders of the Lincolnshire Rising put the yellow into yellow-belly.
Lincolnshire Day is a wheeze by the county council who probably picked the day as a metaphor for themselves.
It’s pretty pointless, like celebrating the failure of a Catholic who failed to blow up Parliament.
We don’t even get a day’s leave and most of the events planned are in Lincoln (which actually chickened out of the Rising).
Still there’s nothing wrong with having Lincolnshire sausages for breakfast, stuffed chine for lunch and toasted plum bread with Poacher cheese for tea.
But if you go out wearing a yellow waistcoat, be prepared for people saying: “Ay up may-et, yer looking a bit rum. J’need a showder to cry on?”
On the other hand, if you want some serious facts about God’s County…

Stephen Kell says: This is the state of the paddling pool in Dysart Park yesterday morning, a total mess. But being as the park gates are left open till all hours what do you expect? A call to Lincs police was made by the park keeper when he opened up and by 11.30am still no one has been. So much for SKDC wanting to go for the Green Flag award for this park.
