Just in case the Chancellor's autumn statement isn't a lot of laughs, those skittish funsters at Oran Mor have stepped up to the plate (which of course holds the customary pie) to make merry with today's taxing issues. Cue Aladdin, a rags-to-riches role model for our times. His is a single parent household, his mother's laundry business is all washed up and the family's in the soup, not eating it. That's a hint about some souper word-play, by the way – although Arbroath doesn't come into it since we're in Peking.
