    Black Friday

    Auntie Wainwright or Arkwright could have invented Black Friday. Mon - Wed cans of beans cost 75p, Thursday they go up to £1, Friday - Black Friday/Cyber sale 25% off down to 75p, Monday they go back to 75p again.......

    Can you name an episode where???

    Entwistle mentions that the Mexicans invented custard in a later episode as per usual they all merge into on so to pinpoint it I'd say it was somewhere between series 22 and 31 ........

    Seymour mentions Ukraine in the cafe in Dried Dates And Codfanglers and an earlier episode I can't recall off hand. Interesting that his coat of arms of the looks like the Ukrainian flag upside down if anyone has noticed.

    Simpsons Plagiarism?

    Having watched Go With The Flow again I noticed the vicar is busy playing with his train set, also in The Simpsons Rev Lovejoy is also a fan of trains and even wears the workers cap playing with his set.
