A Mischief Of Magpies

If the Sun were the size of a beach ball then Jupiter would be the size of a golf ball and a Mischief of Magpies would be as small as a pea.

You, you...Wotsit thrower, you!

Hilary Buckland, 46, chucked a cheesy Wotsit out her car window and found herself fined 75 quid for her trouble.

Are Wotsits biodegradable? Probably not, by the looks of them.

Okay, so the 'council official' who caught her thought it was a cigarette butt. Even so, these environmental wardens are a bit keen sometimes...

I've seen them hiding, watching smokers to see what they do with their fag ends. One woman I know dropped her fag butt on the ground beside a bin - by accident, she dropped it as she was trying to stub it out - and they pounced on her with a 50 pounds fine.

How come they never seem to fine the folk who gob chewing gum or great wads of phlegm onto the streets?

That sounds truly creepy. Are we turning into Switzerland or something? Don't approve of dropping litter as such, but what if you litter accidentally like your friend, like unknowingly dropping an old subway ticket while you fish something out of your pocket.............

Loads of littering happens at night. Do you think they're going to be there to jump on drunken neds just out of Destiny when they lob their chip wrappers away?

Many council officials are bred from chewing gum and great wads of phlegm.

Now you're being offensive to chewing gum and great wads of phlegm.

Perhaps, but fortunately their options for litigation are a bit limited.
