Anyone remember the joke shop which I think used to be somewhere near the Elastic Inn. When we were kids we used to buy all kinds of stuff in there. Stink bombs to let off in the lifts at Owen & Owen, fake turds, fake blood, smoking monkeys (no idea how a plastic figure could blow perfect smoke rings!), itching powder etc. Unbelievable now that a shop could survive selling stuff for pocket money amounts. In my mind's nose I can still smell the strange chemical interior of that shabby looking shop.
