Tough time for neighbours of Pickwick

Well I’ll confess, I just have no idea. Please explain.

“No menus please.”


??? It says "No junk mail (“publicite’) please”. It is the “Pickwick” that has gone past me. Must I read “Pickwick Papers” to get the joke?

Pickwick is an english pub in Beaune. These poor people live in a house with a door that looks like the entrance to the pub (“hotel/bar”).

That may be true, but I’m sure Bill is right.

Henry, I am sure you are correct. It amused me however.

Hi Anthony,

Then that’s the better reason!

Henry, I am sure that you are correct, but I am going to read “Pickwick Papers” anyway…
