11,000 locks, minus 3,200 keys, seems to equal 7,800 locks that nobody has the key to, unless my maths is seriously wrong.


You assume that each key is only capable of opening exactly one lock. I would guess that the locks are suited, otherwise some very big pockets would be required for the bunches of keys!

You're normally better than that, Steve.

I wasn't expecting it to be YOU who turned out to be the humourless pedant who ruined a perfectly good joke.

Didn't you even attempt to think twice when Gavin saw it instantly?

No, WRONG.

On the grounds that YOU didn't find it very funny.

Remember that perception is truth.


I don't think taxpayers are finding this funny, it's a disgrace if the taxpayers have to foot the bills by the stupidity of a commercial organisation!

No I saw it, my eyesight is fine - I'm not the doddery old fool around here. But that's only one person - unless you're laughing at your own jokes, which truly would be sad. So fair enough, I suppose you probably are laughing at your own jokes.
