Thanks to Tim Almond, who pointed me towards this little nugget.
An English pub is trying to beat the imminent ban on smoking in public places by asking for consulate status from the Peruvian embassy in London, the landlady said Friday.

She pledged that staff would learn Spanish, celebrate Peru's national holiday and may even get a pet llama if they secure consulate status.

As Squander Two pointed out, in an entirely different context, "ingenuity is infinite"...

Interesting that. I've just run a post on Tim earlier. Nice blog, whenever we can understand what the hell Tim's writing about.

Pedant alert.

Consular /= embassy. Consular offices are the territory of the geographic state.

Nice but, as is spectacularly appropriate here, no cigar.
