I had to get a replacement bus from Northampton to get back from Bedford at the weekend because of engineering works.
Bus went through Rugby where I saw an angling supply shop called (wait for it) Rugby Tackle. Nice to have a logical punning name.
I also noticed that Coventry has Welcome to Coventry signs coming into the city which say 'Welcome to Coventry - Home of Coventry University' this is useful as sometimes that sort of thing can be confusing, and it is also a nice big fuck you to Warwick Uni.
The sings also say that Coventry is the 'City of Peace and Reconciliation'. - Nice to be the City of Peace and reconciliation - better than Ghost Town.

In the late seventies Herzog bet Errol Morris if Morris ever made a documentary Herzog would eat his shoe. Errol Morris is now one of the most famous documentary makers alive. So Herzog ate his shoe.
Best bit – when Herzog explains he jumped into a cactus after one of the little people from Even Dwarfs Started Small got run over and set on fire and Herzog wanted to show he had some understanding of the problems little people faced in the world.
Some how what should be one of the most ridiculous things ever manages to be quite profound.
