I fear the Blue Peril is about to let go.
In the law of sod it is written that a car can only play up straight after you've just spent a fortune getting it serviced and through it's MOT. Lionel (of course he's got a name) appears to be trying to do things he simply isn't designed to do.
Now there are two courses of action open to any car owner.
The first is to bite the bullet and take it to the garage to get the problem sorted straight away - taking any expense on the chin in the philosophical manner of short term pain for long term gain and that it'll only get worse (and more expensive).
The second is simply to turn up the stereo to the point you can't hear the problem.
I'm off to buy some CD's ....
So here's the joke ....
A man took his wife to the Rodeo and one of the exhibits is that of breeding bulls.
They went up to the first pen and there was a sign that said, "This bull mated 50 times last year." The wife poked her husband in the ribs and said, "He mated 50 times last year."
They walked a little further and saw another pen with a sign that said, "This bull mated 120 times last year." The wife hit her husband and said, "That's more than twice a week! You could learn a lot from him."
They walked further and a third pen had a bull with a sign saying, "This bull mated 365 times last year." The wife got really excited and said, "That's once a day. You could REALLY learn something from this one."
The husband looked at her and said ....
"Ask him if it was with the same cow?"
