"Busman's Holiday"

Today I am mostly visiting Goonhilly Satellite Earth Station with Mrs Scary and the Scaryducklings. I have been warned not to be a bighead. And to behave.

Later... I behaved, but, alas, I was a bighead.

They had one of those video-phone thingies, linked up with a similar exhibition at Land's End. People are encouraged to have a go and converse with the saddoes who have paid good money to see a cliff, while making British Telecom look good.

Phone rings. I pick it up.

Saddo: "Hello?"
Me: "Pizza Hut, can I take your order please?"
Saddo: "That's not funny."
Me: "Oh, but it is." >click!<

I got Mrs Scary's best withering look. Oh dear. And I promised and all.
