Signs of respect

Norm raised the question of how delaying the announcement of the UK general election till today was a sign of respect.

I offer that one the day of Princess Diana's funeral, Cloud and myself walked through Coventry to return a hungover friend to the train station and passed a store with a sign up saying "Closed as a mark of respect for Princess Diana's funeral".

It was a porn shop.

Now THAT's respect. [Typeface for irony definitely needed].

They obviously realized they couldn't compete. The funeral itself was pornography par excellence.

Soft-core, of course.
