  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

A disenchanted supermarket baker has taken a parting shot at their employer by slipping tiny poems into packets of cookies and cakes.

The mystery wordsmith wrote dozens of haikus - Japanese poems with three lines and 17 syllables - before sneaking them into Sainsbury's treats.

Well this is different from your normal fortune cookie. Bit worrying that he was putting them inside the packets, could have been worse. Hope these packets are well sealed in future.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

Think a little human touch like that would make my day. And make teaching haiku easier...

'Good' is not the same as 'nice'.
'No, murder is running your broadsword through someone because he worships a different God to you... Or is that evangelism? I get confused.'
When they discover the centre of the universe, a lot of people are going to be disappointed - They are not it.
I don't object to the concept of a deity but I'm baffled by the notion of one that takes attendance.
