Via Annie Mole (actually via IanVisits), we find this fun juxtaposition of two recent stories about the London Underground. Apparently, the organization that runs the famed London subway system has massively increased its legal spending -- tripling it in the last five years. This from an organization that is way over budget and being told to cut its spending. It seems like the legal fees could be a pretty good place to spot -- especially when (on the same day, in the same newspaper) there's a story about how lawyers for the London Underground are threatening a woman who opened "The Underground Restaurant," which has nothing to do with the train system, but is a reference to the fact that it's a home-based restaurant (something that's become quite popular over the last decade).
