ON TRAFFIC CONES, STAG DOS AND BEING A LADY.

Please note whilst I endeavour to keep Monday Media family friendly some of the articles featured do have links to articles of a more adult nature. TT

London police were called to an incident involving several men dressed as traffic cones.

And meanwhile in Louth, Lincolnshire ...

Two men dressed as Batman and a Minion who were celebrating a stag night have been involved in an unprovoked attack involving ... you guessed .. a traffic cone.

Whilst in another stag do related incident in Blackpool ...

Initially thinking they had been drawn on in permanent maker an unnamed man from Swansea, Wales, soon discovered it was worse than that we he realised the 'Ray-Bans on his face had actually been tattooed on.


Evidently not wishing to leave us women out, after last week's 39 steps for the modern gentleman Country Life brings us our own lady's guide  ...

  • Cooks perfect, crispy roast potatoes (a disaster in the kitchen as many of you know, Mr T will be laughing himself silly at this one)
  • Excels at making love, lasagne and long gin and tonics (well, we've ruled out the lasagne. As for the other two, that's for me to know)
  • Knows when to let a man think its his idea (don't we all?)

And talking of gin ...

A Northumberland police officer has provoked a backlash of complaints on social media after criticising a certain supermarket for selling gin and tonic flavoured crisps.

Okay, what's with the traffic cones? Good grief...but the Ray ban tattoos take the cake!

I love the list for the ladies and wish more women would pay attention to #13.

Still laughing at those traffic cone costumes. Priceless!

Hi Tracy,

I'm not sure about the ethos of selling gin and tonic crisps to children, although the articles analagy between that and selling wine gums, is a very valid point. Hubbie is a wine gum addict (it has to be Maynards though and he much prefers the black and red ones), so I had better not let him see the article!

Having read the Country Life article, I have come to the conclusion that I might be a bit more of a lady than I thought I was ... but only a bit ... and only about the really unimportant stuff !!

Thanks for sharing and have a good week :)

Oh my goodness- such stories. These make me so glad I am on the reading side of the news! The tattooed sunglasses may be the worst- so permanent! Thanks for sharing. :)

Um, were they out in traffic?

I'm not sure what I think of the traffic cone costumes, but I enjoyed reading Country Life's Lady's Guide (complete with pics of Downton Abbey characters), and I had to go back and see what #13 was, due to Kelly's comment. The tattooed Ray-Bans are awful--I'm glad they were removal by laser. Thank you for this humorous post, Tracy!

I've finally posted a review, after taking a long break. I have several assorted giveaways on my blog, and I hope you and your readers will stop by soon. Have a great week, Tracy!

It used to be bad enough when stag dos involved putting traffic cones on top of statues etc - but men dressed up as cones - really daft!!
I can't see how that man didn't know that his face was being tattooed - I have it on good authority (my son's!)that being tattooed is painful, so I think even if he was drunk he would have felt it!!

That piece on the 39 steps to being a Lady was not friend;y towards the list. I found it to be an interesting read in and of itself.

If really accurate that Tattoo story is horrifying.

I was a little surprised that the guy cared about the tattooed glasses as he seems to have some other horrendous tats on his head and face anyway!
