I was trying to irritate @bone
??? Bruges has its drawbacks, especially if you arrive by car. But... if you love visiting old churches and cathedrals as much as I do, it's definitely a destination; in particular, the Church of Our Lady - that houses Michelangelo's 'Mother and Child' sculpture - which is absolutely breathtaking. Bruges is definitely best visited in the off-tourist-season because the crowds and queues can get maddening. The 'chocolate street' is fun, but expensive. The beer sellers (I hesitate to call them 'bars') are good fun, too. I've been there both alone and with my late wife - who really enjoyed our self-guided tour despite the fact that it rained that day. And yes, we climbed the 'belfry'.
easy enough: QI Season 3, Episode 2 - Cummingtonitechips with or without chips
They're odd to me, Scottish chip shops.
Well, you know, they say;
can l have a fish supper.
And like, supper means
- "and chips".
l thought l'd go in and, you know,
ask for a supper supper,
and see if l had two lots of chips.
