I was going to wait until closer to the time to mention this, but what the hell...I've just registered the trading name Manx Multimedia and got the certificate to frame.   My staff position at Manx

You mean MR's royal correspondent? He does hushed reverence so well. "And, on this day of days as the members of this most ancient of parliaments process along the reed strewn path to take their seat

The local mass produced polystyrene literally tastes of nothing; even the seagulls turn their nose up at it.

 

Over-priced and over-rated, like everything on the Island - twice the price and half the standard seems to be the norm.

I'm sure it is, hence why the independent bakeries like Noa Bakehouse are doing so well.

The Manx are always suckers for novelty. Still holds the record for 30k visitors to McDonald's the weekend it opened...FFS.

Agree there.

It took me about 6 months to figure out that they say " dot co dot I M" so to speak.

 

This is the second recording. The first was totally unintelligible. All I could make of it was "The cold, dark island."

 

That's actually quite appropriate considering they're selling heating oil.
