My annual gas/electricity usage summary arrived from Scottish Power today.

Anyone else with data to...
Right, stressing a bit here and haven't slept much, so my mind may be playing tricks on me...
That said, I just saw an advert for EDF Energy that has a little turd as a mascot...
Is it just me?!
There is also some similarity with Mr. Hanky (the Christmas Poo from Southpark)
