Well Ho-lee sh*t. I thought this was some meme I didn't get or befuddling Photoshoppery but, stomm, it seems this actually happened. I feel like I've woken up in the wrong universe.

That damned Nero has a lot to answer for...

Are we sure the Shat didn't switch universes again?

I thought it was a typo at first when it said he was 90 - my mum's 90 and she struggles getting to the bottom of her garden these days.

Another question - has Brexit finally and definitively ruined the chance of some Gregg's branches opening in ROI?

You're not really missing much. We have a couple of them in Belfast, but they can't compete with our local bakeries. They don't even do filled sodas.
You may quote me on that.

I dunno man, they have been a memorable treat from any visit to London, Liverpool or Glasgow in the past decade.
I will take your word for it Senor Pops - wouldn't be like a Northern Irishman to take a contrary position unfounded.

I've noticed that dark chocolate Kit-Kat multi-packs from Dealz are becoming increasingly harder to find, also. Oh, the Humanity!

Also:

Damn you Brexit!

Weirdly, you don't get much of either here in Ireland either.  Newsagents were plentiful when I were a lad but have mostly been consumed by Spars, Centras and the like, while bakeries here are like curry houses - they exist, but they're not really part of the culture the way they are in the UK.

Best bakery I ever knew wasn't a shop but a commercial bakers in Dundee that worked through the night to supply pies and rolls to local shops. They didn't advertise, but if you went round the back of the yard in the wee hours there was a grubby handwritten price list sellotaped to the back door and you could buy hot pasties for about 20p - great to fortify you for a drunken slog up the Hilltown after a night out!
