Be Prepared

Saw a chap in the queue ahead of me in Lidl yesterday. He had a certain eastern European look about him.

His provisions were:

  • 3 bottles of vodka,
  • 6 jars of gherkins,
  • 6 jars of herrings,
  • Loads of raw meat,
  • 6 cartons of orange juice, and
  • A large box of toilet paper.

I thought the addition of the last item showed foresight and preparedness.


  1. Probably his old Latvian school reunion party?

  2. Gerkins and toilet paper. Quite appropriate.
