Clean me

Working where I do, you see a lot of dirty lorries and vans. Why do people always write "Clean me" and the like on them? One time I saw "All I want for Christmas is a clean", which is really tugging on the heartstrings to an unnecessary degree.

The thing is, nobody writes "Clean your van", or "This lorry is really dirty". It's always first-person, written from the point of view of the vehicle. I suspect that the lorries exert a hypnotic influence over passers-by, and compel them to write these messages.

Note - I saw David Cameron and Nick Clegg today, and the above is the most important thing I can think to write about.

Normal service

Once I'm satisfactorily unemployed, I'll resume posting something trivial, long and fascinating in this blog every single day. Well, after I'm back from Las Vegas, anyway. Thanks for sticking with me until then!
