Storyline

The Meldrews are stuck in the mother of all traffic jams - there's even time for Mrs. Warboys to go to the pub and buy them all crisps though she buys the wrong flavour,and when Victor jumps out to take a leak the traffic moves on. There's a horse box in front of Victor,giving him an unbridled view of the horse's bum and the salesman in the car on one side of him is using Victor's airspace to chat up the two girls on the other. And when Victor decides to play a tape of soothing music,it's the last straw. Written by don @ minifie-1
