Any Flags?


On a visit to Kendal I noticed this shop and was tempted to go in and ask if they had any England flags. US readers won't get this but it's typical English humour, for example we find it funny when in a chain of shops called the pound shop (so called because everything is priced one pound) to pick things up and ask how much is this?

i did that once... however i seriously didn't realise i was in a pound shop in blackpool!! it took me a while to work out why the shop keeper seemed to glare at me everytime i looked his way...

I think the old Monty Python (one of my all-time favorites) show did a take on this.

In the States they are called 99-cent stores and the same joke is heard there daily
