Big Cheese Has His Chips

Has anyone else noticed that the coffee shop in the Custom House, new home of Ramsgate Town Council, has various filled baguettes 'all served with chips and mayor' on its menu?

What next? Green salad? [Geddit???!!!?!???!??!!!!]

Speaking of which, I was taking the old penguin suit to the cleaners this morning and found the menu from the Turner Centre's Tracey Emin celebratory dinner at the Walpole Bay Hotel the other day, stuffed in the inside pocket. Here it is in full:

Funnily enough it wasn't me that spotted it first, Don. I was tipped off by several of my informants, who all thought it was hilarious!
