1980s Advertising For Irn Bru Claimed It Was "Made in Scotland From Girders". Irn Bru Contains 0.002% Ammonium Ferric Citrate... Small Girders, Then.

Amidst all the cynicism and nastiness of the blog - er, I mean world, it's easy to forget that people can often be disarmingly kind. It doesn't always take much effort, or even expenditure, to be nice when you could be nasty, though that's all too often overlooked as the news media bombard you with tales of financial and social woe.

So, in the hope that it might make you feel - as I did - that the world isn't an inherently hostile place, I would urge you to read the story (and play the video) behind the picture accompanying this post; the words and moving images can both be found here.

And if you don't think it's a good thing, then I say Fie and call you a callous savage, for kindness and consideration are all that set us apart from the animals!

...Well, that and using utensils instead of our teeth to cut up our food, but you know what I mean.
