Llama parking

651432_34245302  This story amused me no end. AFP (via Yahoo) report that, "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. Perks of that could include free parking, diplomatic immunity -- and being allowed to smoke on the premises." Even if their chance of success might be a bit thin, you can't fault them on creativity. Can't you just imagine typical British punters turning up to park llamas, wearing Peruvian traditional dress, such as ponchos?
