    Typical herald, over glorifying the headline. Should have read "Tesco fresh meat delivery". Every little helps...

    I didn't get showboater's joke about his friend. Why is he now in a stable?

    I think it's Plymothian. I think you drop the U. http://tinyurl.com/a4psbjq I think they use images from a photo library. How many times have we seen the police Honda CRV car? I'm not sure why they use stock images, it's a bit tabloid but perhaps they get more web hits that way? The horse photo would be acceptable if it had the usual disclaimer in a smaller font saying 'image posed by model' on the end. Or in this case 'serving suggestion'.

    The person for the HERALD who writes the snippit under each photo needs re educating or firing. Certainly not the brightest spark around. A daily cock up by this person who never writes anything to do with the photo displayed. Today we see one horse stood at ease but according to DINNY its 'Four horses running towards Tesco in Roborough, Plymouth. SORT IT OUT!!!

    This is the first time I have really laughed at the Plymouthian humour. Keep it up. Much better to see humour than grim responses we sometimes see here. Great read
