Hi all,
Currently staying in Hangzhou for a couple of days on a shopping trip and this morning went down for breakfast and this was how the table was laid out where you get bread, make toast etc:



I was just so surprised! I thought, what kind of person could think for one second that a rifle would make a nice table display!! What happened to the good old fashioned vase of flowers or a nice display of fruit?

Then I thought an image like this would make a great image for a caption competition so here's mine:

"Anyone spotted taking more than two slices of toast will be shot on sight!"

So get your thinking caps on and let's see who can come up with the best caption.

Mark

"Texas-style breakfast"

"Charlton Heston's coffee table"

Seriously, the first thing I thought was, is that Texas?

Following up on Mara's Nov 8, 2007

A shot of healthy food a day, keeps energy within range...

P.S.: Mara, the word "bang" reminded me of that Nancy Sinatra song ("Bang Bang) that Quentin Tarantino used in "Kill Bill".

Make toast or we send the boys round Nov 8, 2007

We know where you live.
Jenny

P.S. Perhaps "Little Translator" should switch to the toast biz.

Our breakfast is bang on target... Nov 8, 2007

And you'd better agree!

Mine's not very original I'm afraid. I'll be back if I think of more though!

A shot of vodka? Nov 8, 2007

It might just as well be a camouflaged bottle of vodka "Kalashnikov", like this one:
