You can't making an omelette without...

... the ingredients.

From The Evening Standard:

Police in London are urging shopkeepers to refuse to sell eggs and flour to under-16s in the run-up to Halloween in case they use them to target the homes of elderly and vulnerable residents.

The crackdown has been launched in King's Cross, where police said in previous years youngsters had mixed the ingredients to rustle up mischief.

In a letter, pinned up to a shop front in King's Cross, officers from the area's Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) asked shopkeepers to volunteer not to sell the household staples to under-16s in the week before Halloween.

Another thing to add to my "well, you've plenty of time for..." list when the police complain that they're under-resourced.

That's the under 16's bake off challenge at the local church hall stymied then.

Personally, I dread this time of year. There is a local custom called Mischief Night. Nobody can quite agree which night it is but the local oiks get very frisky at this time. They hang around outside in large loud groups.

I am tired of putting fires out / cleaning windows / cleaning up paint...

RT. So why did you make all that mess in the first place then? :-))
