Shawlands Fried Chicken

[Picture of SFC fried chicken meal poster]BLATANT CASHING IN — DON’T WE ALL LOVE IT?

I was quite struck by this poster in a local shop window.

It reminded me of something, but I could not for the life of me remember what it was.

On further reflection, I realised that it was still a chicken-based deep-fried product… Hmmm:

  • SFC.
  • Fried Chicken.
  • Red and white stripes.
  • Secret herbs and spices.

But what I am thinking of is not SFC, but something else. Nope. I just cannot think what this reminds me of! Things must be getting worse!

Big Pupils

[picture of chip shop kids' lunch menu special]MY EYES GREW LARGE IN DISBELIEF WHEN  I SPOTTED THIS CHILDREN’S LUNCH MENU IN A LOCAL SHOP.

No wonder kids are fat these days!

  • 1/2 pizza (deep fried) and chips
  • sausage and chips
  • popcorn chicken and chips
  • chips
  • roll and chips
  • chips and curry
  • chips and gravy
  • chips and cheese
  • fritters
  • roll and fritters

Deep fried fat hell is on the school menu! Not a green vegetable, not a meat (except from chicken and sausage), just deep fried fatty potatoes basically!

Things are getting worse when shops are able to target school children in this way.

Strictly

[picture of strictly no parking sign]WE ALL KNOW HOW POPULAR STRICTLY BALLROOM WAS.

We also know how popular has been Strictly Come Dancing on the BBC.

Perhaps there has been some influence on the No Parking sign?

Yes, things are getting worse when a simply no parking sign has to refer to a media phenomenon for impact!

Tree Trunk Calls

[Picture of telephone wiring street connection box complete with interference]WHEN A BOX FULL OF WIRES IS INVADED BY VEGETATION, MAINTENANCE IS REQUIRED.

Click on the picture to enlarge the photograph, you will see that this box of wires has been maintained — by painting the plant the same colour as the box! Notice too that the plant has been pruned!

This is incredible, so strong is the vegetation, that the doors have been burst open.  Heaven knows how the telephones work in this area of Glasgow City.

Things are definitely getting worse when people simply try to paint out growing problems that ought to have been nipped in the bud.
