Whatever happened to......?

Recommended Posts

What happened to all those fish pedicure places that popped up all over the shop? 

What happened to all the fish?

What are the fish up to now? 

How did the fish know when to stop chewing your feet? That's what I want to know?

They were most likely made into fish cakes or fish fingers.

They stopped chewing when they got to the bones.

Whatever happened to football managers conducting interviews with the window wind down while leaving the ground? That's what I need to know?

They have developed a camera with a shutter speed so fast it can photo a woman with her mouth closed.

Whatever happened to "Elbow Grease"?  I spent nine hours working on my old range cooker yesterday.  Worked hard at getting the carbon caked cast iron back to a raw grey metal surface and then ran out of elbow grease and had to sit down with a pint to recover.  In the old days I had elbow grease to spare but these days it is in very short supply.

On the subject of photographers leaping out at you in Skeggy: Here's a photo taken by such a photographer circa 1955.  Note the number in the bottom right-hand corner.
