Lead astray

For reasons I won't bore you with, I had occasion to visit the Pencil Museum in Keswick on Wednesday. Now there's 15 minutes and £4.50 I'll never see again. But I did get to see the world's biggest colour pencil, so it wasn't a complete waste of time.

Oh, and I saw this:

And to think cynics said it couldn't be done.

  1. I remember my grandfather once telling me how badly constipated he was....he had to work it out with a pencil...

    I'm here all week folks!

  2. Who was it who said 'you can follow a horse to water, but a pencil must be lead'?

  3. Here we go........
    They could have a life size model of William Shakespeare.......
    2B or not 2B

  4. Do they have the world's biggest rubber?
    For American readers thats 'eraser'.
