Catch-Up Service: another genuine shop name and some other jokes


Catch-Up Service: another genuine shop name and some other jokes


Another for my collection of terrible shop-name puns, from Graham Kirby. 

• The daily catch-up, a round-up of links, short comments and pictures that I posted here every morning, is going to become the “occasional catch-up” as I accelerate like a pink Bentley into the Independent‘s bright all-digital future. I shall be writing for the website and the app (sign up here for a free trial) more frequently during the day.

If you’d like a daily email reminder with links to all my maunderings (“perhaps from obsolete maunder ‘to beg'”), you can sign up for the Catch-Up Service email, which is sent out at 9am every morning if I’ve written anything in the previous 24 hours. My author page is here, and the RSS is

And to Namey McNamename ‏(@Cain_Unable) for this:

“Today seems like a good day to bury bad news. It was a stupid name for a hamster anyway and he died over three weeks ago.”

Tom Freeman ‏was unimpressed by George Osborne’s proposal that students should study maths up to the age of 18:

“We already have to study maths up to age 16, and that’s quite enough. There’s no reason to add an extra three years.” 

Moose Allain ‏again:

“I’ve just bought my friends a new boiler and complete central heating system, as a house warming present.”

And again:

“Greg! Greg! Greg! Ian! Greg! Ian! Ian! Greg! Greg! Ian! Ian! Greg! Greg! Ian! Ian! Ian!”

Gregorian chant.

And finally, also from the mighty Moose: 

“Quick reminder: April Fool’s Day has been moved to 2 April because of the leap year.”
