Sue Hinchliffe, of Rastrick, enjoyed the copy of the Beano that was delivered with the Examiner the other week because it reminded her of a recent trip to Berlin when she saw this sign outside a store.
“I think you will have a laugh at it,” she says.
“It makes me laugh everytime I see it. It needs no explanation.”
Thank goodness for that. I never realised that Dennis the Menace’s dog Gnasher was such a well-travelled animal.
Sue adds: “On the subject of pobs, when I was growing up in the late 1940s and 1950s, we always had a cat. These were always female so produced kittens regularly. I remember my mother feeding the mother cat with pobs after the cat gave birth: bread soaked in milk, but she probably didn’t put sugar in it. That would be scarce at the time and cat food would be expensive if there was any to be had at the time. So, another use for pobs.”
