Snow cartoon: A load of rubbish


Why does everyone insist on saying "Blimey, a bit of snow and the whole country grinds to a halt!" as though that's a bad thing? We need more grinding to a halt. Surely it's time to petition the Government for an officially recognised National Grinding to a Halt Day?

  1. Some weeks I try to have a not grinding to a halt day - a sort of getting started and doing something day. It's a bit perverse I kno and most unbritish but I can't help myself.

  2. That's kind of my point ... we all feel like grinding to a halt sometimes, so why does everyone complain when the chance to do so is handed to them!?

  3. Surely everyone slides to a halt? Usually hitting something with their car on the way and then blaming someone else.

    Grinding is something teenagers do in dark nightclubs - I'd hate to think that society is doing that kind of thing in the street in front of my house, I have children for goodness sake.

    Actually, thinking about it, I'm now in favour of public grinding.

  4. Thank you for your comment Mr X, though you have taken the conversation off on an unusual tangent and put some unpleasant images in my head!
