The Big Chill in Lower Hutt ... for putting Watties Tomato sauce into their Heinz Tomato ketchup bottles.

 

The Petone Working Mens Club for putting a cheap imitation of the real Worcestershire Sauce into the original Lea & Perrins bottles.

 

 

 

 

It's the sawdust on the floor and the Woodbines in WMC that I dislike....

 

 

 

 

woodbines?

 

 

 

 

Woodbine is a brand of cigarette made in England by W. D. & H. O. Wills (now Imperial Tobacco) since 1885

 

Noted for its strong unfiltered cigarettes, the brand was popular in the early 20th century, especially with soldiers during World War I and World War II. In the Great War, the British Army chaplain Geoffrey Studdert Kennedy MC was affectionately nicknamed "Woodbine Willie" by troops on the Western Front to whom he handed out cigarettes along with bibles and spiritual comfort.

 

In common parlance, the unfiltered high-tar Woodbine was one of the brands collectively known as "gaspers" until about 1950, because new smokers found their strong smoke difficult to inhale. A filtered version was launched in the United Kingdom in 1948, but was discontinued in 1988.

When I lived 4 doors up the road from a popular pub, and they had an arrangement with a waste-disposal firm who'd empty their dumpster of about a zillion empty beer bottles - at 2:30AM 7 days a week.

I've got one of those.

 

A while back, the UK had a Gold Medal Olympic shotgunner. He used to practice at his parents farm.

 

The neighbours complained about the noise and he was banned from practicing...!

Oh FFS ....

 

Our country village sounded like a shooting range over the weekend  ... betcha that there will be recent arrivals complaining about that too !!!

 

Quiet a well known issue with recent country arrivals complains about crop dusters, bird scarer's, etc. Wusses.

 

As an aside, the whole shotgun shooting reminded me of a comedian by the name of Wes Harrison, who performs vocal sound effects with only his mouth and mic. He had a very good duck hunt saga ,.... by car, by boat, by train and by jet plane ...

Companies taking generic China boxes, slapping their logo on the front and trying to sort some firmware for local use, bringing in a container load of and hocking them off to the public who think that because they purchased this from Noel Lemmings it must be good quality.

 

 

 

Right now thinking specifically of satellite freeview boxes, where you can't buy a brand name like Sony, Panasonic, Samsung etc.

All while charging a massive premium over a $25 China Sat box price because it has the crap laggy guide and free view minus features.

It was opening weekend for duck shooting I think!

 

I prefer pheasants and grouse, personally.
