Heard this exchange in the Post Office the other day whilst waiting in the relentless queue from hell –

Man with deep loud voice: Now, is it still the same price for stamps to send these to The Empire ?

Disinterested post office pleb: Empire sir ?

MWDLV: New Zealand, South Africa, places like that.

DPOP: Yes sir.

MWDLV: Good, now have you got any with nice pictures on them ? Trafalgar, or something like that… Let 'em know who won the war.
