Every so often my Brit buddies send me mail that gets me going. From Mr. Free Market:

And from The Englishman:
“I think the menu for a Defender launch event says all I need to know about the target customer…”
(From Kim: No Full English Brekkie, nary a steak pie or sausage roll, and forget about a good bacon butty*. My earlier post about this silly vehicle is quite appropriate, I think. And WTF is a “frittata”?)
