That’s ruff!
Website slip leads
Worst Street astray!

As any fule kno, nothing is too much trouble for Boston Borough Council when it comes to helping out the people who pay its taxes.
Perhaps co-incidentally, perhaps by design, a recent nothing-to-do-with-Worst-Street entry on the borough’s Twitter page advertised for couples from Lincoln and Scunthorpe to take part in Channel 4’s “Couples come dine with me.”
Apparently, the perfect partnerships host the best dinner parties in town – and to win £1,000, three pairs have to stage three dinner parties over three nights.
Obviously they have to come up with something a little different – and at the same time that the borough was publicising this piece of irrelevance, it was also offering an interesting idea on its website.
Our top of the page picture is an edited highlight of the original shown below (click to enlarge.)

The environmental health page offers two items in its “news” section … “If you should find a stray … Are you sure that's safe to eat?”
Somehow, hot dogs will never be the same – but perhaps there are plans afoot in Worst Street for a town twinning link with China.
