But what colour cabbage will it be?!

What will the PVR be? How many buses will be repainted for it? What weird and wonderful puns will be used on the back of the buses to create discussion in Andreos Snr’s car with his youngest?

It will be a purple cabbage with blue stripes and livery designed by Uncle Ray using the Transdev Sacriston No. 1 template design.

Three cabbages will need to be repainted with three green spares in case other vegetables aren't available for other routes.

The PVR will be a lemon.

What if the cabbage wishes to identify as a swede? We live in a very modern world nowadays and we ought not to discriminate against different types of vegetable.

Speaking of modern worlds, I wonder if our roving reporter from Pyongyang can confirm if such vegetables are permitted to be eaten in North Korea?

If the cabbage wishes to identify as a Swede, I have a feeling that will be Pritti Patel's problem as she oversees matters of immigration and repatriation though I'm not entirely sure on the laws which govern vegetables.

I'm not one to speculate, but I imagine, much like people, vegetables of ideological impurity will be forbidden to enter North Korea. If they are allowed in to the country, they will be allocated a guide like Michael Palin when he did documentary there.
Can anyone explain the reasoning behind the short runs between Washington Galleries - Biddick, rather than just waiting at The Galleries an extra 10-15 Mins

To replicate the previous frequency, which was lost with the removal of the 85 beyond the galleries?

Speaking of S&D, youngest Constantopolous saw a 2 again the other day.
'silliest bus name ever that like'.
He asked why they had called it the name they did and not just given it a number. Not sure he was impressed with my response about marketing and advertising.

Haha, I know a fair few locals who are still bewildered by the names of the routes, however the Silver Fox has the most positive responses by far  Smile
