Two in my area do 'whistling dixie'.
The sandwich vans play tunes?
Singing sandwich van? What x 2?
(we have ice-cream vans in scotland which play horrid jingly jangly tunes, but sandwich vans? Amazing.)
One that went to the other day even had a mini oven to rustle up hotdogs and burgers, it was intense.
Their horns are the old sort that do a comedy tune to alert people to their presence. It is wonderful.
And now I want a dirty burger, gah.
It literally causes a stampede.
the love theme from the Godfather.
He is known as 'the Italian man'
I want a flying van.
That, my dear, is clearly from the future.
Do they actually exist? I can remember a Hollands Pies van parking up outside our school at lunch time, but that was in Deepest Darkest Lancashire. Sandwich Vans? Incredible.
now vulnerable to attack so you have to hit it with everything you've got before it closes them again
she just comes in, shouts "baguettes!" and then hangs about for about 40 seconds before leaving (huffily if nobody buys anything).
for a while there was a rival panini man who specialised in italian deli-style paninis. she sandwich lady was up in arms and much drama ensued. the panini man no longer delivers to us :(
WHEN DOVES CRY
da, da, da-da, da-da-da-da, da, da, da, daa!
A bit of a van horn classic, I think.
Maybe it's the same guy. Chatty black dude with a white fan that does coffee out the back and loads of stuff?
plays the Match of the Day theme tune. top notch.
I miss hearing that theme even though I don't like sports.
it's not allowed to anymore by the landlord. we just get an email sent out by the receptionish
There are now lasagnas and other pasta dishes served hot direct from the van, next to the burgers and hotdogs. This is a great day for me.
with sangers in a box tied to the back of them. They do not have a horn/play a tune. I wish they did.
which means if you want lunch it needs a lot of forward planning. Her stuff's not bad, and there's been some controversy recently because a coffee van now turns up at 9am, which has divided loyalties across the office (I don't use either. And neither play music, though there is SOMETHING which goes past every morning and honks a Dukes of Hazzard horn).
that could come around offices and such like at lunchtime playing this tune.
i reckon you would make an absolute mint, of course the spoilsport beurocratic authorities would interfere with such enterprising capitalist venture, cos they like red tape
It doesn't play a tune, it has a bell instead. Thank you for listening.
I am speechless.
It's the OP I'm baffled by.
