Who’s that? Ringo Starr? Never heard of him. What was he in? The Beatles? Never heard of them.

What’s that? Thomas the Tank Engine you say? Ohhhh! That Ringo Starr! Now I getcha!

Looks like someone at the Telegraph’s been spending more time watching their kids’ TV programmes than listening to their own tunes.

    “Marilyn Monroe is peeking out of his blazer… whoever she is.”

    Someone told me she once sang “Happy Birthday” for the Fat Controller. Hope that helps identifying these people (especially the narrator with the big head and enormous jacket) who, I have to say, looks rather uninterested in the sidings.

  4. Am I right in thinking they’ve spelt ‘Telegraph’ wrong in the 20pc offer line?
