… some residents in the historic village of Henlow in Bedfordshire are failing to see the funny side of a newly opened business.Purse-mouthed small-minded idiots…
A petition and letter of complaint has been handed to owner John O'Toole, decrying his bakery's choice of title: Nice Baps.*chortle*
John said: 'A little petition was handed in and I had a letter from one of the local schools who said they thought the name was trashy.’Wait, what? From a school?
Yeah, I’ll just bet she did! I bet she didn't clear it with her headteacher first... Luckily, the local councillors aren’t quite so keen to indulge these po-faced loons:
…a teacher at Henlow's Raynsford VC Lower School wrote to John claiming she was worried about the 'effect' the name may have on impressionable children.
She refused to comment on the issue last night.
Should have held it tomorrow, it’d be far more appropriate!
Cllr Wiles said: 'Henlow Parish Council is keen to support local businesses and welcome the fact that the shop in the High Street is being used rather than standing empty or being converted to housing.
'As far as we know no planning application would have been required and we certainly haven't seen or commented on one.' He added: 'To date we have received one letter from a local resident expressing some concern over the name of the shop, plus a couple of verbal comments about the colour scheme. 'The letter will, as per normal procedure, be considered at the next full council meeting, which in this case is due to be held on April 11.’
