Downside of Moustache Wax

Moustache wax is fine for maintaining a resplendent handlebar in normal circumstances; however, I have become aware of a dire problem - steam from a hot cup of coffee can soften the wax with the consequence of massive moustache droop and you looking like a bedraggled walrus.

People are to be given more control over their pension pots once they retire - is that a wise idea? Perhaps it is if the government wants to stimulate the economy out of recession - just imagine, thousands of irresponsible pensioners (which is what the government is banking on) grabbing the cash and blowing it on moustache wax, holidays, Lamborhginis, wine, women and song. A perfect recipe for a booming economy fueled by the elderly.

Talking of old people blowing their money on cars - it's my 59th birthday tomorrow and I'll be up at sparrow's fart to proceed to Ludlow to collect the Mercedes SL300 Mid-Life I bought. Can't wait!

Just look how clean that engine bay is - it shines! I'll have to find an old, disused barn to keep it in for the next 30 years.

The problem with buying old cars these days it that it's debatable as to how long we'll be using petrol to power them. By the time this jobbie becomes as classic as an e-Type (and of similar value) I'll have to invest in a hydrogen cell to keep in on the road, which will kind of detract from the originality.

  1. When your grandchildren will roll it out of the barn they'll do what Ms Benz did - go to the pharmacist and buy a can of petrol.
    Best wishes for the new year.
