GOING SHOPPING

Ben Now, have we got everything we need?
Sam Well, let`s see. There are some onions and potatoes, but there aren`t any mushrooms and, of course, there isn`t any minced beef.
Ben Are there any carrots?
Sam A few. But we don`t need many, so that`s OK.
Ben How much milk is there?
Sam Only a little. And there isn`t any butter, and we haven`t got much cheese.
Ben Well, we don`t need much cheese. Is there anything else?
Sam No, not for Shepherd`s Pie. We`ve got some salt and pepper, and there`s a lot of flour. Would you like me to help with the shopping?
Ben Yes, please.

It`s hottest show in town.
(Singing) I get no kick from champagne.
It`s the tops. It`s Elaine Page in Anything Goes.

A car fanatic in America wanted a few extras in his 1982 Cadillac, such as a TV, video, three telephones, a bar that seats twenty, solar deck, and a swimming pool. So he gave it eighteen wheels and stretched it… to a massive seventy-one feet eleven inches. If you`re looking for something new, with a little more leg room, you can meet a car made for you at the London Motor Show Motor Fair at Earl`s Court, on now until Sunday 29.

(Singing) Can`t beat it. The feeling you get from a Coca-Cola. Can`t beat the real thing…
(Various voices) When you… buy… Coca-Cola… you get… free… meal.

Man: What they`re trying to say is that when you buy the special Coca-Cola twelve-packs, as long as a grown-up eats as well, you`ll get a free kid`s meal at Little Chef, Happy Eater, Welcome Break, or Harvesters.
Children: But that`s what we said.
(Singing) Can`t beat the feeling.
