On the good ship, lollipop …


I’ve just seen a story on the BBC local news about a new Kung Fu Temple being opened in the Shirley district of Southampton

That’ll be the Shirley Temple then

(Mind you it is 1 April)

  1. There is actually a restaurant in Shirley – a suburb of Birmingham– called The Shirley Temple – I know, because coming back from a Dylan concert at the N.E.C we passed it – and then stopped, as we HAD to go in!!!


  2. There also happens to be a pretty damn useless ‘cocktail’ called a Shirley Temple………..why useless ????
    cos its made with ginger ale / grenadine / and maraschino cherry……………no alcohol !!!!!
