Overheard - 3rd November 2015 - Ice cube diet
The ice cube diet has supposedly taken off in America

 

The ice cube diet

Whilst reader Kristian Laliberte was on the treadmills at Equinox in New York he listened in to two ladies in conversation as they worked out. One, a svelte blonde, casually told the other: “I’m on the ice cube diet”. “What’s that?” asked the other. “Oh, it’s simple”, came the reply: “I just eat ice cubes for five days”.

 

The injustice of earnings

Shared on Facebook by reader Gillian Castle: “A footballer earns £250,000 a week. A soldier earns £18,000 a year. A footballer gets flicked in the leg and falls over screaming. A soldier gets his arm blown off and carries on. A footballer lets us down every year. A soldier makes us proud every day”.

 

Fooled by French

A young Eastern European lady at La Brasserie was overheard chatting on her mobile. She told the person at the other end of the line: “I’m at La Brasserie. It’s some kind of Italian place”. She was then asked about the location was and answered: “It’s called Chelsea. I don’t know it but I do know that show”. No one’s betting on her winning Mastermind any day soon.
