but is Godot travelling at Mach II then?
Or maybe the II stand for the second thread about Godot...

Nevermind...;)

Godot has a Concorde at his disposal? My, he has come up in the world.

Ah hah! That's why he's not here. He's waiting for his Concorde to take off. Much like Zarniwoop's intergalactic cruise liner.

Ah. I thought he might have a private one. If he is waiting for regularly scheduled Concorde service, we will be here a while.

Didn't they retire all the Concordes a few years ago? He may not have gotten the memo.....


Could be he has a spaceship by now...

No, I don't really want to try. I do have a good picture of a (central) London bus rank though.

Well we don't have any double decker trains over here. They were experimented with in the 50's and 60's on the Southern Region, and I remember seeing a couple of them. Class 4DD But we have too many tunnels in the UK and they were too cramped to make them fit under the loading gauge.

Tell you what, I'll swop one of ours for one of yours :-)
