Wombat’s DVC Rule for Charity Shops

IMAG0107Put simply, this rule states that in every charity shop in every town in Britain, there is a copy of Dan Brown’s execrable book “The Da Vinci Code”. Go, look, and you’ll discover the truth of this for yourself.

IMAG0109There is also a sub-clause, which states that if you DON’T find DVC in a particular charity shop, there will be two copies in the next one you visit. Or maybe one of his other equally naff tomes. try it out. It’s a fun game to play while Mrs. Wombat* is looking at endless jumpers and handbags.

* insert your OH’s name here.

  1. Well, sure. Wouldn't YOU want to get rid of it if you owned a copy? And aren't charity shops where people attempt to get rid of unwanted items?


  2. It used to be copies of “Jaws” that would appear in every charity shop. I think that's another book you can't read twice but maybe for other reasons.


  3. Can't remember who told me, but apparently Fleetwood Mac's Tango and Cash also follows this rule.
