Saw this and nearly spat my tea when I read the last line - pure genius. This is genuine and not added by me. Proof readers must have had a sense of humour last night! In a beach chair made for two By David Sapsted (Filed: 03/02/2005) A seaside resort long known as "God's waiting room" is attempting to enhance its appeal to younger visitors by introducing double-width deck chairs designed for amorous couples for whom "two chairs are just too far apart". "We brought them in to bring a bit more romance to the town," said a council spokesman in Eastbourne, East Sussex. "We do have the image of a retirement resort, and that's unfair. So we're doing this to try to challenge some outdated perceptions." Councillor David Elkin said the "Wide Boy" chairs - being given a test run, above, by Laura Thompson and Lee Watts - would allow couples to enjoy a "romantic cuddle as the sun goes down". And, at Â£2 a day, young lovers can make a 90p saving on the price of two single chairs. Alternatively, fat, old people can be a lot more comfortable for less than the price of a pint of Sanatogen.
