Nigel - yes, although the disguise element may be lost.
Reminds me of the old joke about the man who was stealing wheelbarrows
Angus - what old joke?
Perhaps the wheelbarrow is taking the weight off his mind.
Demetrius - aarghh!
this one AK:)There’s a story about a security guard at a factory. One day this guard stopped a worker who was walking out of the factory gates pushing a wheelbarrow with a suspicious looking package in it. The guard opened the package up and found it contained nothing but some old bits of rubbish, sawdust and floor-sweepings.The next day he stopped the same worker who was again pushing a wheelbarrow containing a suspicious looking package. Once more it contained nothing of value. The same thing happened many days on the trot, until the guard finally said, "OK, I give up. I know you are up to something, but I just can’t tell what. Please, I promise not to arrest you, but put me out of my misery - tell me what you are stealing.""Wheelbarrows," smiled the worker, "I’m stealing wheelbarrows."
