  •  Tesco (0+ / 0-)

    I've only been in Tesco's in England, and have to agree.  Once I was chatting with an English friend and he remarked that a division of his company had moved to Slough (an armpit of England), and I made a little stream of consciousness poem about Slough and a Tesco store there.  Just very silly, but we had a chuckle.

    Far away, and
    fourteen months since,
    the windmills of Slough turn,
    turn,
    turn.
    Five-grain bread at least, we need,
    Hovis-like, to stiffen lips, heart, male apparatus.
    Some think it end-of-the-line;
    others, gateway to the Great West.
    We know it as Mother Slough,
    cradle of science, high street beyond peer,
    its Tesco replete with Scottish Beef and low carbon footprint;
    it probably even has an MP.

        Did buy some nice pudding rice there.  There was a recipe for rice pudding on the bag that called for a 'knob of butter'.  Gotta love those Brits.
