Millions Bonbons…

But first…
Dulltown, Europe: Today’s existential angst is centred around the sound of the word chutney.

DSCN3603Here’s a photograph of mine from last summer; it shows the window of a newsagent’s shop here in Dulltown city centre. I suppose it’s a photo to read rather than to look at for its aesthetic qualities; for me the most eye-catching words are of course the ones about the antics of the ‘naked man’ – the word ‘naked’ always grabs one’s attention doesn’t it? Hm… ‘crossbow stand-off’ – it sounds like the name of a goth/metal band.
‘Hey Dude, have you heard Crossbow Stand-Off’s new download – it’s really creepy-dark!…’
I wonder why one of the Nescafe & Go posters is stuck in the window upside down? The shop assistant sits just behind the upside down one and the Hull Daily Mail advert, perhaps it was quickly stuck up to block the view of passers-by – maybe the shopkeeper had been regularly tormented by passing school children who pressed their grinning sweaty faces, tongues out, against the glass to deliberately annoy him/her?
I think that ‘millions’ and ‘bonbons’ might have something to do with the National Lottery, but I’m not certain, I don’t bother with such silliness. Anyway there it is, a slice of local colour  – a quick glimpse into the life and culture of Dulltown UK… ‘Energy is everything’.

    I think if you eat enough Bonbons, and drink lots of Nescafe, its quite likely that you could actually end up naked with a crossbow. Some of my family come from Dulltown. I am a Yorkshire lass, however, but ended up in Scotland. They don’t have crossbows up here, thankfully. 😀
