The One Pound Butcher's shop rewards wisdom and discerning. Products include meat, cheese and a really fat wasp in the window.

       Wow, that's much better value than the local Metric Butcher's Shop, where everything weighs a kilo and costs a kilo.

       If you're like me, you are easily (or not so easily) baffled.   

       Think about this.... The butcher shop itself must weigh and cost a pound, as does everything else in it. So, what if I took out the window. Now the window costs/weighs a pound. Interesting. A rare case where the sum of the parts weighs/costs more then the whole? In a way, it's like a sort of fusion. Splitting the pieces up, but they still retain their traits. [+] for getting some very freaky math going on.

       [Nylon] I wonder then if standard pound shops themselves cost a pound. I'd buy one and convert it into a trendy wine bar.

       I'll take that really fat White Anglo-Saxon Pork.
