back to article Demon satnav imprisons plucky trucky in pasty hell

This week's hilarious satnav tomfoolery story comes from Ivybridge in Devon, where comical foreign person Yuro Odehnal was "sent up a narrow country lane by his satnav" last weekend - almost to his doom.

I'm agast !

Lewis, you could talk-up the act of watching paint dry into a frenzied Red Top article.

Have you considered therapy ?

Could've been worse...

...my sat nav once tried to leave me stranded in a bit of boggy wasteland between two labyrinthine housing estates in Milton Keynes...I'd much rather have taken my chances with the pasties...

Allright...

...we'll give you the job with The Sun! I'll send a new copy of Roget's Thesaurus along next week as well - yours must be falling to pieces.

Keep up the good work.

Ah, good old Devon, i remember it well, never been back though.

At least Mr Page seems to have been taken over by his spirit.

Please can we have a 'more of this sort of thing' icon.

If you remove the need for comment title and body, I could then post my approval with no need for a keyboard...

"Dad. Why does this lane have an overhead pipe?"

"Some day son, someone will invent a satellite navigatiion system. Then lorry drivers will drive down here and get stuck.

Please, the Banjo is an instrument beloved by the Scots, here in Norfolk it's the Ukulele, a la "singing postman". But I suppose it doesn't have the street cred for Deliverence
