I suggest a competition. The rules are simple. Take and submit a photo of the oldest thing you own which still works and from a now defunct company or brand (in the sector from which your object originated). 

I'll kick off with this eraser from John Menzies which means it has survived at least 22 years.

Oh dear, Colin. I hope the medics find out which parts are not working, and can sort it out soon for you.😉

Unfortunately. Roger, the non functioning bits are now beyond repair without bionic intervention! I do find the medication that  I buy from Fred at WBS  helps. However, I can still manage that nasty flight of steps from deck 3 to 4 on the PA.

Radio France Internationale accidentally published a series of preemptive obituaries today.

Tomorrow they will be announcing Brigitte Macron is pregnant and bears find that woods don't offer enough privacy any more.

"None of them are currently dead. RFI has said it is "mobilising to rectify this major bug".

What will they do? Go out and shoot them?

Or perhaps not, it might make you want to go and kill yourself, when you realise what people think of you.  Hopefully not Lol.

Apparently the French government are today debating a new law that would mean making fun of someone due to their accent becomes illegal. This would put the crime in the same bracket as homophobia or religious discrimination. 

I may as well go and hand myself in now.

I have always found that the French enjoy regional and foreign accents just as much as any British person with a normal sense of humour. Having a foot in both camps, I mercilessly work the subject....
