A funny thing happened on the way to the canal…

P1000068

I just had to dash in and share this hilarious news item from (where else?) Birmingham. Looks like even the Chief Constable of West Midlands Police could have lifted his evening’s work straight from the pages of ‘Gravy Train’.

I swear this is a genuine incident and not something I’ve made up. Although given that it involves fishing bags out of canals, I might well have… Just shows those canals really are handy receptacles for all manner of junk!

    It is weird how close to Gravy Train all of this is. It’s one of those ‘you couldn’t make this up’ stories…

    • Probably because the original idea came from a real life news story too – only that was a body being fished out of one of the canals! They really do attract all sorts… 😉
