The Tube

Courtesy of Devil's Kitchen and for Londoners and anyone else who has ever been stuck in a tunnel trying to get down the Northern line, I bring you this rather wonderful website full of the sayings of London tube drivers announcing things to their passengers: my personal favourite is the driver that announced,

"Hello this is xxx speaking, I am the captain of your train, and we will be departing shortly, we will be cruising at an altitude of approximately zero feet, and our scheduled arrival time in Morden is 3:15pm. The temperature in Morden is approximately 15 degrees celsius, and Morden is in the same time zone as Mill Hill east, so there's no need to adjust your watches."

The only word for such a man is genius!
