One at a time please

2007 is probably going to be a year that hardcore tobacco smokers in England will find a bit hard to get used to. In July there is set to be a smoking ban "in all enclosed public spaces". Later on, from October, the age limit for buying tobacco will be raised from 16 years old to 18.

This is probably a good idea for dealing with one of the most damaging and pointless recreational drugs in UK society. Whilst no ban is in force yet, some venues have started early. In a similar vein, The Poorhouse was kind of amused to see the following restriction in place in an anonymous (because I can't remember what it was called) All You Can Eat restaurant.

With this in mind, the below people would probably not be welcome at the said establishment (or, one has to assume, any other place of vague well-repute).

In an all you can eat restaurant, haven't you been banned from them all, has word not got around to everyone about your amazing eating prowess?

Not the ultimate

Restaurant owners should note your words for sure...but these days I don't have the Great Immense Eating Power of the CHOO don't forget.

Saying that, I can't explain quite how excited I was to go to the Chinese we've been to near my house just before Christmas and they had AYCE Xmas pudding, custard (*) and mince pies!!!

(*) The custard looked inviting - because custard is lovely - but was actually foul so you didn't miss out too badly.
