Italy, il bel paese

Just in case you can't see. the first knob provides condoms, the second a throw-away lighter and the third those generously large cigarette papers for people who like a long, cool smoke. The dispensing machine is outside my local newsagents and must have smoothed out many an otherwise bumpy evening.

No aspirins? It can't be a truly bumpy night unless you need condoms, nicotine AND painkillers, surely? And like Anne, I had a titter at 'first knob'.

You won't believe this, Anne, but I didn't notice the double entendre, which says a lot for my linguistic sensitivity at the monent...

Hi Kay. I quite agree, but Italians still don't drink quite as much as we northern Europeans tend to do, and I've never felt that a dope hangover quite lived up to its name...
