My heart goes out to them, poor people to have such devastation visited upon them at a time of joy and harmony.

Great comments - with much potential!

Arf! Local Newspaper Gold. All the elements are there;
- Tenuous claim of being 'offended', later tarnished with "We personally don't know anyone affected, but..."
- Anger at local chain-store, with absolutely intention of getting some free stuff, oh no, certainly not
- Reference to the act of eating as 'Tucking In'

This article just sums up the people of Stafford, a place where I was brought up and lived for many years, in that a they would consider a ten pound box containing eight crackers to constitute 'luxury'. By way of further illustration, it's also the same town where I once saw a rather large lady yelling at the manager of Poundland because the lack of price labels on any of their goods made it confusing for shoppers.

This just goes to show what can happen if you're stingy with the pre-dinner drinks.

Thank god they didn't buy the London Underground ones with the print of a tube carriage on the outside and a selection of miniature backpacks, copies of the Qur'an and the terrorist's handbook in them.
