if you’d like elton to turn one of your old photos in to art, you can send them to Elton, at Betty Tigers, 78 Infirmary Road, Sheffield, England, S6 3DD
Elton asks that you make a donation to your favourite charity and in return he’ll ‘convert’ your photo and send it back to you (if you include a self addressed envelope).
this is funkypancake exclusive so send them to him !

why a guiness shandy is a bad idea

guiness and lemonade don’t mix. here is the proof. the lemonade (poured first) sat at the bottom and the guiness just floated around on top of it very nicely.
