  1. The purpose is to promote their delivery service, not their takeaway service.
  2. Their business, their rules, stop wasting their time.
  3. This is unbelievably trivial and who in their right mind cares?

It all makes sense to me.

Anyone else? Looks good, go get some. Better yet, try their delivery service.

    Ah, but unusually, it’s a ‘Harry’s Place’ thread where for once, no one has (seriously) blamed Zionists/Mossad/the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy for this state of affairs….

    “(yawns) Jesus H. Christ this is so fucking boring and trivial I might as be speaking to my in-laws. They should have given you a sodding token and told you to shove it up your rectum and not come back.”

    Yup, if that is the extent of Mr Ezra’s worries… It’s grim up North London. I mean worrying about that and following it up is just so very Mandelson.

    The economy is a basket case, there is a war on and Mr Ezra is forced to have his sushi delivered for free.

    Never fear though! Nick Clegg will rid us of the scourge of free sushi delivery!

    Nick, I wonder what Abdul might say if you substituted Mohammed for Jesus in your quote above?
    Boring you say?
    What defines boring? Something you don’t really want to have to deal with?

    I think Abdul is a nom-de-blog. Indeed I think you’ll find it’s an HP Lovecraft ref.

    The mad arab Abdul Alhazred, author of that forbidden eldritch tome – the Necronomicon.

    Ah, I see. Apologies.
    Thanks for the reference. Looked up HP and he seems to identify the state of affairs inherent in the problem but doesn’t see an answer:
    “The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the deadly light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.”

    The post about the sushi reminds me of a writer in South Africa, Ben Trovato, who used to engage in lengthy correspondence with government departments about strange or ridiculous issues. It was funny though.

    Now alas reduced to commenting at Harry’s Place.

    What would Cthulhu think?

    I think he’d just eat your soul Nick. It’s pretty much his default position on any subject :)
