    The cards.

    IKEA trolley in the middle of the road this morning (nowhere near IKEA), a traffic cone placed on a car's roof, a roadworks sign placed right outside the council house door (in an archway) and keep right sign placed in the middle of the road by High Street, with no way to go other than straight on.

    All this around Drapers/Herbert/Little Park St/High Street this morning at 5am.

    Nowt to do with the high winds.

    Those cheeky pranksters.

    In the grand scheme of things that are currently going on in this city this is pretty trivial.......

    I would also add that Fridays aren’t your traditional student nights out either so you may be being a tad unfair.

    However you could also be bang on!

    No, I wasn't even moaning. I find it all rather quaint and I did smile about it all.

    I do wonder though if they think they have come up with an ingenious plan and that no-one has ever stuck a traffic cone on top of a car before.

    I find it all very harmless (apart from the traffic sign in the road that wasn't there at all and then 2 mins later it was, so I nearly hit it).

    I smiled to be honest and wasn't having a moan.

    I'm very confident it was students.

    I drive into the city centre every Saturday morning just before 5 and this has only happened now. The first week the students are back.

    I honestly think it's great to have them here and can't understand the negativity towards them, they are i think going to be a positive influence on the city and will also take positive feelings about the place away with them. High jinks is part of the deal and better than some of the stuff that went on in town when i was growing up.

    Which sort of turds are they?

    If they're the bass turds they're the worst of the worst.

    Anyone else wondered why turds are brown in colour ? Would be better if they were red/orange i reckon.

    Flashing neon ones would be best, especially for dogs. I can never find my dog's poos at night.

    Bass turds obviously, cos then the joke works, rather than bass turds where the joke doesn't work at all.
