The Laminated Book of Dreams

The sad news that Argos are going to shut 75 of sits stores is I suppose a reflection of the times we live in, although you have to wonder how bad things really are when a chain of shops that offers heavily discounted products can't make it all work and are now going to try and compete with Amazon.

Anyway it reminded me of the following story. A young man goes for a job and having run through his CV the interviewer says, "Can you tell me two things about yourself that aren't on the CV?"
"Well firstly, my penis is the same length as two Argos pens end to end."
"And the second thing?"
"I'm banned from all Argos stores."

hahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa......

I hate Argos...no, I was laughing at the joke.

I find it hard to get upset by some closures, this isn't quite there but one was the game shop chain that closed (last year, funny name, Hawkin's Bazaar or something) having grown from an online present finder: IMHO it was full of cheap tacky crap and should never have existed but a plethora of such high street chains do exist.

Yes we had one like those down here, it seemed to be full of either Elvis or Marilyn tat or things covered in Union Jacks. Bizarre!
