Happy Birthday Geoff, and here's to Useless Objects

Geoff came round tonight to collect his birthday present. I got him something which contains a large number of brightly coloured plastic parts and is completely useless. I have a strong policy where Geoff is concerned of supplying only completely useless birthday presents. I mean, socks are useful, enough said.

I'm a bit concerned to find that The Gadget Shop, a local purveyor of useless artifacts, is having financial worries at the moment. But then, I suppose there is always the internet. I think helping to locate useless stuff was one of its design aims.
