Money For Jam

He Was On A Hot Streak

A Norfolk barman closed the till hid the day’s taking - about £1,000 - in a hot oven after his boss told him to put it in a "safe" place. The horrified landlord said: "When I got to the kitchen and smelt the burning, I realised he was serious." The Bank of England has said some notes may still be useable if their serial numbers are legible.

FOOTNOTE: Crisp notes.

Funny if tragic! When my agent first started 3 decades ago, she stored manuscripts in the kitchenette’s (unused) oven. Must have lead to some hot deals.

I guess they had money to burn.

Once again I'm speechless. Presumably the barman was new?

He was waiting for the 'dough' to rise. ;-)

David, as you know, I don't usually ask someone to read a specific post. However, knowing how you fabulously create 'play on words', I think you would get a huge laugh out of my most recent post - Urine Leaking E-Mail at Misty's Musings.
