Jose was always good at arts and crafts but once he got his scooter and found a bundle of bamboo and case of gold spray paint he went over the top on this one!

Right, with my new KrisDel time-o-matic. If I enter, I dunno, say UK Margate May 18th 1964, that should be just fine for a peaceful day at an English beach.

Or maybe Hastings 1066 ?

Lococarin (Low Cost Carribean Insurance) attempts to emulate Geico ads with the money covered cycle and rider - unfortunately the money always blows off before filming.

It is much simpler, and far cheaper, to wrap everything in tin foil, and drink half a bottle of the finest scotch. The ultimate effect is exactly the same, (except to Canadians, who need only 1/3 bottle of Rye or hooch!)
