Bargain Breakfast?

11032011133

I saw this sign on the platform at Basingstoke station last week.  If they genuinely meant to offer the items in the plural sense then this could be something of a bargain.  “Any regular hot drinks” – the possibilities are endless.

Sadly, however, I suspect that you get one roll and one drink for your £4.  Far from being a recession busting bargain, this sort of ‘offer’ requires a mortgage in its own right.  If I was an American I’d possibly consider ordering several rolls and drinks and then suing for false advertising when they charged me more than £4.
