Normal For Norfolk

Normal For Norfolk, originally uploaded by Colonel Blink.

I don't know how to describe this and because the windows of the vehicle were so dirty I was not able to photograph it with the clarity it deserves.

Somebody had gone to a lot of trouble to recreate, in scale model form, the last watery resting place of the Titanic on the dashboard of their VW microbus.

Bizarrely a toy animal menageries stands next to it. Perhaps the Lion represents Leonardo Dicaprio while the not-sure-what-it-is baby animal is supposed to be Kate Winsome.

Maybe a reminder of the folly of all human endeavour plus an intimation of mortality improves ones driving........

Brilliant - maybe the owner of the VW is from Belfast, where Titanic was built, or Southampton, from where it sailed.

Of course, if it had been made in Norfolk, it wouldn't have sunk.
