    A friend works at a seafood restaurant next to the tidal swimming pool at Shoalstone which is close by the breakwater at Brixham, Devon. A few days ago diners noticed that overnight someone had cleverly cleaned winter algae from the pool bottom to create this, errrm... artistic creation:

    The amusing bit is that the artists were three fifteen-year-old girls, wearing wetsuits, who were identified from CCTV images.
    No criminal offences committed but HM Coastguard and Police felt obliged to visit the young ladies at home—with images of their artwork—to offer them and their parents safety advice about swimming in an unsupervised tidal pool at night. Ouch!

    Can’t remember which thread it was that @Chelonian and @Ninja_Stoker were trying to figure out how to lay their hand on one but it seems I have found a solution!

    This popular Japanese sports drink might go well with a bar of Shyte...

    Clever ads. I like them. Been practicing the dance moves with my niece. :)

    The ad also ticks the diversity checkbox because several iterations of AM are featured: painted hair, flock hair, eagle eyes, grippy hands, beards...

    Don't recall AM ever having a 1970's bandit 'tache though. :confused:

    One cannot eat pudding until one finishes their meal.

    And if one finds it's still too bland then I have just the seasoning one need.

    That would sure have been quite a bummer.

    The Japanese Navy v's US Navy adverts show the global influence of the Village People and their influence on USN uber-machismo recruitment, rather nicely I think :)

    This looks a bit too smart for the real-life RN :)

    How about a cigarette in one hand and a half-eaten kebab in the other? And perhaps a dishevelled Barbie doll (minus one shoe) hanging off his arm? :cool:

    Yep, it should come with the standard issue 'kebab compass' (guaranteed to steer you back to your ship). And a Barbie for each port, obvs.

    I think it would be fair to say the Japanese Naval recruiting ad is more camp than a row of tents, but nonetheless good for a giggle.
