The next station is Oval

I thought it looked more oblong actually

I was at a client meeting this morning in Kennington so had to get off at Oval. Oval's one of those stations were the first or second time you hear the recorded voice in the train saying "The next station is oval", you have a tiny chuckle to yourself. This must wear extraordinarily thin when you hear it day after day. Or see people going to watch the cricket give each other knowing looks or say "The station doesn't look oval to me, although it is a bit curved - pnarr, pnarr".

See larger section of this spoof tube map - I know other sites have the full version but I'm not going to take on the BBC by using the whole map
