Smokin!

There was quite a bit of activity in the Old Market Square and surrounding area today. There was a truck promoting swimming and swimwear; the monthly farmers market, where I bought a bottle of locally brewed real ale; local news reporters outside the Council House, and a stall advertising the dangers to health of smoking indoors. Besides trying a cigarette at 14, I've never bothered smoking the demon weed. Can't see the point in it, besides being a waste of money of course. So I didn't really stop to have a look at what was being promoted. But something did make me stop and look twice. I'd noticed this man standing behind a display board in the shape of a house, with a rather gloomy face painted on it. He was just standing in about the right spot so it looks like he has a giant yellow head. Ideally he would be in brighter clothes. But it still makes for a comic scene.
