We have had a nest of tables for years,
I wonder why there has never been any young.

According to the Apple dictionary it may be a 1920s abbreviation based on the name of the manufacturer Frigidaire.

Tables never breed in captivity, not even if their privacy is respected.

I did buy some socks there once. I was looking for cotton socks and that is what they were supposed to be. They shrank, and after two washes I threw them away

Birmingham New Street Primark is like a Cattle market.
Primark have I understand put in a bid to take hold of the Pavillions shopping centre to make it a "flagship shop".

If the flagship is anything like their socks, then it will probably sink into the ground like the Mary Rose
