    ... or so the old saying goes.

    Time to get 200 tins of beans from makro and get the shotgun loaded.

    If I miss only one meal I can get very grumpy indeed.

    As a trained butcher I think it will be cat escalopes before we starve.

    No need. If you live in the country then ducks, squirrels and wood pigeons taste far better. You can stalk deer and hare in the snow too; just follow the tracks.

    I will apply for my shotgun certificate and move to the country.

    Or I could just take a baseball bat to that boxer that wanted to take my leg off this morning when out running and serve it up on a platter.

    No sheep around? You can hit them over the head with a baseball bat too. Top tip; go for the smaller ones; they're hoggets, tastier than lamb but still tender. But then if you're a trained butcher, you know that.

    Does the UK still have a civilisation?
    Duct tape holds the universe together. In quantum chromodynamics it's known as the strong force. You get it in different colours, but metallic grey is best.

    There are signs on the signs on the A3 near the M25 that say "this sign is not in use"

    What could be more civilised than that?
    While you're waiting, read the free novel we sent you. It's a Spanish story about a guy named 'Manual.'
