How can you tell if you have too much time on your hands?

There are many ways, but here's the sort of clue that it might be time to think about seeking out a hobby:

Silver-tongued radio DJ Mike Read has turned Disc-Choccie - creating a £5,500 picture of Brighton's West Pier out of sweets.

The former BBC Radio 1 star is showcasing his art in Brighton, working with liquorice, Bounty bars, smarties and rock.

Although if he'd gone to St Martins, we'd probably be reaching for our chequebooks.
He has also combined his love of music with his passion for art to create pictures of famous album covers such as Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and Abbey Road by The Beatles.

We'd like to see him try and recreate The World Of Twist's Sweets sleeve only using CD jewel boxes.

Notwithstanding that his continued breathing is enough indication that Mike Read still has too much time on his hands, have you seen the West Pier recently? You'd have bits left over from a 4 finger kitkat. Now the Palace pier, then I'd be impressed. Or if he'd hanged himself on a chocolate gallows.

I suspect if you visit the collection, you may also find a recreation of the cover of The Icicle Works' "Love Is A Wonderful Colour".
