Adoption gets easier…?

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured.

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might very well have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

2 Free Kids

Spotted outside the Holiday Hypermarket on Teesside Retail Park.

Not sure that ‘2 Free Kids’ is exactly what they meant. But then, this is Stockton, so it’s difficult to be sure…

I guess the most important question is: If you get two free kids when you buy a holiday, do you have to take them with you? Because that could be mighty inconvenient. Off you go to book your honeymoon at the Holiday Hypermarket, and ‘ey up, you’ve got two new screaming kids to take with you. It’s certainly a worry.

There is no Holiday Hypermarket at Teeside Retail Park. There is, however, a Going Places Holiday shop.
