My favourite girl was on the drive-thru again last night

Turns out she doesn't use the pump - I said to her "blimey, did the pump get a bit carried away?" she responded with "I don't use the pump, they always pop on there"

Wow it was no accident then. She must know what's she's doing.

This branch doesn't happen to be in London does it? I have been to Krispy Kreme before and seen quite a lot of inflation some pretty big but not quite as big as that and mostly on the pump. I haven't been for some time as the last thing my waistline needs is Krispy Kreme doughnuts a week's worth of saturate fat and sugar in one handy Bitesize container)

Wow, that's really impressive - usually advertising balloons like those are really cheap and pop easily, but that's one of the best necks I've seen on a tied-off balloon!

No, although a few years ago I used to get some good big ones from the one at New Malden. I only go for a coffee when I'm passing - it's either there or mcdonald's at 1am, so no waistline worries.

The funny thing was I never actually used to buy doughnuts because they would give you one of the iced ring doughnuts if you bought a coffee usually straight hot off the production plant which you can see from the shop.

Not sure if they still do that or whether it was just the one nearest me that did it

I think I wouldn't agree, at least here in Germany most advertising balloons are Belbals which are quite tough.

And I think Vicci's white balloons are Belbals, the shape fits my experiences with several Belbal davertising balloons.

Ahh, that would explain it. In the US most of the balloons you'll find are cheap low-quality ones.

I ordered them back in 2013! sob.....

Try a giant GL 500/600? in a motel deep hot tub--crank the jets--it bounces you like straddling a giant sausage and the swirling hot water caresses and tickles your little toes and pink soles, snatches at your calves and ankles.
