Dear Mr Puddlecote

"School offers counselling over a kid's pastry"

The kids need it to cope with the sheer stupidity of their teachers.

Dunno mate, but Pink Gin is pretty close! I used to work as a cocktail barman at Crispin's wine and cocktail bar in Ealing back in the early 80s, and we had a regular who was a retired Indian Army officer and a great pink gin man. So much so that his daughter used to come to the bar to plead with us to limit his intake. Ha! Forget it kid, the man wants a pink gin, that's what he gets. Heavy both on the gin and the Angosturas. He was a real character. A much liked customer. :)
