After meeting a terrific vending machine earlier this year, I was delighted to find another incredibly convenient retail experience in London’s bustling West End.
It has everything for the world of today: a cash machine, tobacco, something to do with medicine or adding numbers together, mobile phones, vaping supplies, and Internet Explorer.
Naturally, I went straight in, withdrew some cash, and spent it on an ounce of snuff, some medicine and/or maths, having a SIM card unlocked, a pint of blueberry sherbet vape juice, and a crap browser from 20 years ago. If you need me to pick up any of that for you, just shout.

Do they have six potatoes of man power?
I had a look at the medical/maths department, because your request seemed to involve both people and numbers. But I couldn’t see anything potatoey. So probably not. Do you want some Netscape Navigator instead?
Is that Nescafes new coffee? It does sound rather taste. Send me over ten bottles for my immediate consumption.
Oh yes, it is rather taste. You’ll love it. Get a pint of Netscape down you.
I need a firm handshake of a coffee in the morning, and I reckon Netscape is the blend to get me sorted.
If you’re willing to give me some money for it, then yes, I will absolutely endorse your misguided ideas. That’s good business sense. I am a businessman now.
You’ve lived in London / France for so long that it was bound to happen at some point. I’ve seen your cupboard, the bowler hats waiting to be worn, the black umbrellas and the fancy canes, the briefcases full of newspapers about the stock exchange. Filth.
That’s the one. I work in the Bank of England now, where I buff all the pounds. It’s important work. Stop distracting me.
I bet you buff those enormous London pounds with strings of notes of Newcastle pounds just to show how great they are. I bet you use them to dry your shoes out after stepping in a particularly deep puddle.
Yeah, we mostly use Newcastle Pounds to dry our hands when we’ve been to the toilet. It’s nothing personal, it’s just that they cost less than those bulk packs of paper towels.
