Salted? If that box isn’t red it should be sent back.


#622

Add crumbled bacon and maple syrup.


#623

Lidls £1.59


#624

Indeed, a measly 0.38g


#625

I’m surprised & impressed by Waitrose’s murderous intentions though. They must really hate their customers & who could blame them if we’re honest.


#626

Except for the salt Christmas cake must surely be near top of table in the deadly stakes.

BTW, have we discussed Christmas cake properly yet?

If you’ve been on ether then I’m not surprised.

The only thing that really worried me was the ether. There is nothing in the world more helpless and irresponsible and depraved than a man in the depths of an ether binge … the main advantage of ether [is] it makes you behave like the village drunkard in some early Irish novel … total loss of all basic motor skills, blurred vision, no balance, numb tongue - severance of all connection between the body and the brain. Which is interesting, because the brain continues to function more or less normally… you can actually watch yourself behaving in this terrible way, but you can’t control it. - Hunter S Thompson, Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas.

A pause for comedy.


#629

Ok, let’s have it then

#631

Looks overdone.

(and the VTA looks high)


#632

got so bad you’re writing jokes for Christmas crackers


#633

You get what you deserve at 12 and 1/2p each


#634


#635

I has the sad…


#636

That place needs to be fire bombed.

One abomination is bad enough, but there’s really no need to bastardise two great food products.


#637

Could try a naan stuffed with real mincemeat, ie with meat in it.


#638

#639

That’s a good idea.

You could call it, oh I dunno, something like Keema maybe?


#640

why restrict yourself to spiced minced lamb though? I have always fancied a sausage Naan - that would be a great Naan!

Maybe I’ll ask at the Turan on Saturday what other things they can put in a Naan.
