A close shave?


Listening to the radio about the criminal conviction of a chap's 'moustache related violence', I was pretty much gob (upper lip) smacked. MOUSTACHE RELATED VIOLENCE?!!

But apparently, this chap, Charles Law, keeps getting into fights over his handle-bars, and has now had his come-uppance.

He's got to lose the 'tache and pay the little toerags 75 quid each for their trouble.

Well flip me round the chops with a wet lettuce, obviously this chap is barking... Yerrr Obviously. But that's not the point.

If he wishes to bristle with the best then he can. This is a free country.

And this comes in a week which saw the publication of a very erudite book which reminds us that it was not the 'hand that rocked the cradle', that ruled the Empire; it was the handlebar that terrified the natives!



So the little scrotes really should have known better and our beloved judiciary should have advised that ignorance of the effect is no defense.

It's only common sense Health and Safety advice, after all, DON'T pick on the unhinged gentleman with the bristling 'tache! Judge should have given them a clip round the ears (back and sides)!

I don't think the whiskers of the Empire's military sergeant majors had the same 'God you look stupid' reaction - theirs were far more intimidating.

Today he is shaving off his tash ...so he says (That chap Law)

He's a self employed financial advisor? Presumably no-one else would employ him. Can you imagine going to see someone about really important things like mortgages and pensions etc and when you turn up you meet him?!?!?! (Shakes head in disbelief)

Span I think it's then way you where it.

And Shy, I've never quite grasped the concept of an independent financial advisor... independent of whom?

Not independent of me and my money, surely?

My cousin recently went to the world beard and moustache championships in Brighton and had the best day out she's had in years. She has lived in aberdeen for a while though.
