Stupid shopping game!

Ok not really a game - just stupid. In fact not sure how long I will keep this one up - seemed like a much better idea when I first thought of it, but here goes.

I'm reading the weekly B3ta newsletter and come across this link

Hmm, seemed like an odd thing to do. Pick up discarded shopping lists post them online and comment on them. But also quite amusing :)

And it gave me an idea. From now on whenever I go shopping i will deliberately leave my shopping lists in the basket when I drop it off. But it won't be a real shopping list... I shall add items to it that when read may cause confusion and with any luck chuckles. Basically I want to mess with people like the guy posting found shopping lists. I have also considered making socio-political statements or even making scary lists. I'm still toying with the idea of dropping off a bomb makers shopping list - but honestly, I don't want scary government types knocking on my door.

So first list then. Admittedly this was a rush job as I just got back from the pub and had 15 minutes to get to the supermarket but here it is.

Then today I dropped off another. This time inspired by the following graphic showing what BP could have bought with all the money they lost due to their recent oil leak issue.
