Christ on a bike! Some loon in Wales wants to sell "Welsh air" to ex-pats (and anyone else stupid enough to part with their hard earned cash) at 24 sovs a bottle. "Businessman John Gronow will launch 'Wales in a bottle.com' on Thursday to sell Welsh atmosphere around the world."

And apparently, he's being backed by some business trust which is run by Prince Charles the head fruitcake of 'Windsor Loo-Laas Ltd'.

Is it time to emigrate?

I saw the said Loony on the Welsh news last night, an absolute fruit loop if ever there was one. The clip showed him taking the top off a bottle and his eyes rolling in his head as the aroma of Snowdon washed over him like a soiled nappy on Porthcawl beach :D

We'll have to buy in Air from Cumbria to fill the void, lest airyplanes will start falling from the heavens over Cardiff
