    for my fellow brits, got this in a mail, thought youd appreciate it :)

    At 00:54 on Monday 23 September an earthquake measuring 4.8 on the Richter scale hit Dudley, UK causing untold disruption and distress -

    * Many were woken well before their giro arrived.
    * Several priceless collections of mementos from the Balearics and Spanish costas were damaged
    * Three areas of historic and scientifically significant litter were disturbed.
    * Thousands are confused and bewildered, trying to come to terms with the fact that something interesting has happened in Dudley.

    One resident, Donna-Marie Dutton, a 17 year old mother-of-three said..."It was such a shock, little Chantal-Leanne came running into my bedroom crying.
    My youngest two, Tyler-Morgan and Megan-Storm slept through it. I was still shaking when I was watching Trisha the next morning."

    Apparently though, looting did carry on as normal.

    The British Red Cross have so far managed to ship 4000 crates of Sunny Delight to the area, to help the stricken masses. Rescue workers are still searching through the rubble and have found large quantities of personal
    belongings including benefit books and jewellery from Elizabeth Duke at Argos.


    * 2 buys chips, scratchings and blue pop for a family of four.
    * 10 can take a family to Gornal for the day, where children can play on an unspoiled canal bank among the national collection of broken toilet pans and shopping trolleys
    * 5 buys a bottle of stout each for a family of 6
    * 1.50 buys XXL yellow sleeveless vests for a family of four
    * 1 buys a VCR in the pub to watch the news again and again
    * 22p buys a biro for filling in a spurious compensation claim

    Simply email us by return with your credit card details and we'll do the rest!
    If you prefer to donate cash, there are collection points available at your local branches of Argos, Iceland, Yates' and Clinton Cards.
