Can a Vink think?
And can a Vink think not to holiday next door to a prying fink?
Ah, but maybe there’s a better question: can a Vink learn from experience?
It would depend which Vink we are talking about, obviously, but in the case of a family of Vinks who have been holidaying in the Coromandel, the answer can only be that they aren’t the sharpest of thinkers and are ponderously slow learners.
Their trivial tale has been turned into the stuff of great grievance by the SoH today under the heading Holiday ruined by spying neighbours
In short, the Vinks were dobbed in by a neighbour for breaching the terms of the holiday lease deal they had struck. Not once – they were warned a first time – but twice.
Oh dear, what a shame…never mind.
