Hey 4eyes, you getting all this?

Sure - there is so much on-topic text here, I'd try spamming a link from this thread if it wasn't for the fact that I don't want you guys finding my multi-million pound network of recipe spam sites.

:ahem:


... yorkshire pudding my a**e  - the only true on-dessert pudding is 'black pudding'

Did y'all know that we have a member here who has appeared on TV in the World Black Pudding throwing championships?
Nah - thought you didn't!

Can't do that - the person concerned might want to preserve their anonymity - this kind of international fame can ruin a persons life.

...... however, if she reads this at her secret training camp in Alaska, perhaps the person concerned will be be prepared to reveal her identity.

Does "this person" eat Black Pudding though

Yes indeed - as I recall she is quite fond of gourmet pigs blood based food.


The ides behind the Black Pudding throwing competition is to throw black puddings at stacks of Yorkshire puddings  - the ultimate 'food fight' Wars of the Roses :)

This may indeed be true Jason. but my experiments with hotpot throwing shows that it lacks the range and penetration of a solid Bury Black Pudding.


Harry Hill moment or not, this is a genuine event :)

*ahem* Thankfully, Alaska is far enough away from the "real" world, it's easy enough to avoid fame up here.  ;D And yes, I've been known to eat the stuff and enjoy it. :) As time goes on and more good beers become available up here, I find two of the top things I look forward to visiting the UK for are black pudding and haggis.

Yes, I may be mentally unstable, but that's OK. I like myself just the way I am.  :P

That said, and speaking of completely random food-related things I've been known to do, my alarm has just gone off to let me know it's time to leave work and head over to the local greek restaurant to pick up a large tin of Cretan olive oil... toodles!

Wife beater is as accepted and embraced into our culture as tramp p##s (Super Tennants)

I always thought that Carlsberg Special was wife beater.  Maybe it was legopener.  My wife calls what we in the UK call vests, wife beaters.  She calls waistcoats, vests!

Talking of which I've never understood why every North American I know and have worked with "in a business environment" always wears a t shirt under a shirt!

When I asked about that years ago when I was sweltering in the humidity of a New York summer, I was told that the t-shirt soaked up the sweat so that the shirt still looked dry.  I tried it maybe a couple of times but maybe I just sweat more than a NYer.   Half the time I just wore a Breacan with nae knickers to keep kewl.

...... I think I sweat more than an 25 stone prostitute working next door to a boys boarding school in Abu Dhabi

That is gross.

Jason, no more detail please. My mind is adding enough without any more help.

I think it is due more to staining from perspiration and chaffing.  T-shirts are cheap compared to dress shirts to replace.  Almost universal air conditioning, or places with cooler climate, makes it easier  to get by without a t-shirt, but back before A/C hot humid days were brutal.

The thing is cotton does not work so well in hot humid climates because once it gets wet it stays wet. (Cotton works great in Arizona where hot and dry.)  Cotton was the best we had, but now the new synthetic "wicking" t-shirts are much better.

That is now seared into my brain-pan.  I'll never be the same again.
