    The message!

    Jezza Bear was planning to go to the shops this morning in his shiny new car but decided to turn back when he saw this message. Why?

    He realized he was still too drunk to read signage properly?

    Re: The message!

    Is the shiny new car relevant to the solution?

    Well there is a <img src=/S/flags/UK.gif border=0 alt=UK width=30 height=18> advert for a car that uses this techique and I have a feeling cars may use what is mentioned in the puzzle, so yes the car is a clue <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    I'm still trying to work out what 8A OF UEL OILS PILL means - something to do with digestible Oil of Ulay?

    Re: The message!

    I'm guessing that 8A is a quantity and UEL is a brand or manufacturer. UEL manufacture a massive pill, made out of assorted oils. The pill is divided up into units, each unit measuring one A. So the notice is an order for the passing UEL salesman: 8A of UEL oils pill.

    The reason for Jezza Bear's sudden turn-around when he saw the sign? He is the travelling UEL salesman and only had 7A of the oils pill on board, so he had to go home to complete the order.
