Many of you will have experienced the situation where you have taken wife/mistress out for a 'romantic' dinner to have the table next to you occupied by a family of ankle biters with one in a highchair who proceeds to throw his/her food around (hitting you) and another crying his/her way through the meal which they didn't like.

This move mirrors that .... may it gather pace.
