Reminds me of the Circumlocution Office in Little Dorrit. I'm so glad #11 is a painter. I did like the description of a colour distributor!

Since a long time ago I was employed in the occupation, I should be putting Gastronomical hygiene engineer on my resume.

Hi Tracy,

What a great post, hubbie an I managed to guess quite a few of them between us, however some of them were more than unbelievable!

It is no wonder that the country is in such a mess!

Thanks for cheering me up after my horrendous Saturday,

Yvonne
