Are you sure you've got a floppy disk stuck in the drive? Or is it 100 lodged in the chassis?

Not sure about fag ash, but I loved the smell of the coal lorry while walking to school. The best ones were those with a the mechanism on the back allowing the driver to attach a sack and fill it there and then, before carrying the coal into the house. Later they changed to a flat bed with the sacks pre-filled and that wasn't nearly so exciting!
