No. 128: Chinese Shelves

Fact: there are more miles of shelving in China than anywhere else in the world. The Chinese love their shelves, and use them for storing all sorts of things, such as small pottery figurines, half eaten packets of sweets, assorted items of stationery, art and craft materials, photographs of elephants, tigers and other exotic animals, self-tapping screws, dried fish, ingenious battery operated devices for the removal of nasal hair, nasal hair, models of famous Korean generals fashioned out of matchsticks and pipe cleaners, small metal washers which have thus far proved useless, but which may come in handy one day, the complete works of Neil Sedaka on eight track cartridges, tiny, pale blue round things, big, bright red triangular things, a man with one eye and a wooden leg called Dave, a 1975 Austin Allegro user's manual, paperclips, cocktail sausages and fluff.
