Dangerous weapons

Do you sometimes despair and think that the world has gone mad?
Do you wonder what happened to good old-fashioned common sense?
I do all the time.
Here is anther example of daftness.

A man asked for a toothpick after a meal in a hotel. The waiter told him that he could not have one because it contravened health and safety regulations.
Gosh – are toothpicks the latest fashion in combat weaponry?
Are they on a par with weapons of mass destruction?
If diners in hotels wanted to get really nasty then they could charge round brandishing the dinner knives and forks, or failing that, start glassing people – but pricking people with a tooth pick…….
As for self-harm, I suppose the diner could scratch their wrists with it, but it would most likely snap into bits before they could draw blood.
I suppose people will now be frisked at airports for toothpicks…..

Mad world innit?

Btw, I have that exact "thought for the day" written on one of my folders somewhere - it's one of my faves!
