Red Dwarf

Memorable Quotes from Red Dwarf Series 2 “Kryton”

Holly: Hope they've got some odds and sods on board; we're short of a few supplies.
Lister: [drinking tea] Like what?
Holly: Cow's milk, ran out of that yonks ago. Fresh and dehydrated.
Lister: What kind of milk are we using now?
Holly: Emergency backup supply. We're on the dog's milk.
Lister: Dog's milk!
Holly: Nothing wrong with dog's milk. Full of goodness, full of vitamins, full of marrowbone jelly. Lasts longer than any other milk, dog's milk.
Lister: Why?
Holly: No bugger'll drink it. Plus of course the advantage of dog's milk is that when it goes off, it tastes exactly the same as when it's fresh.

It’s a little known fact that Asda run a Big Issue type charity, for unemployed Pantomime dwarfs.

When all the Snow White pantomime shows come to an end in January hundreds of dwarfs are out of work.

So Asda employ then to milk the giant herds of milking daschund’s that roam the grassy plains to the North of Birmingham.

So life has followed fantasy, I spotted this dog milk in Asda Trowbridge today!

Spotted in Keynsham today, is it to entertain other motorists in traffic queues!
Or maybe so the kids know which Chelsea Tractor to run too after school!

One man and his dog

One of my favourite candid pictures from 1991 used dozens of times by the newspaper, but a sign that times have changed little for the street people.
