fuck you, warburtons. fuck you.
I just stood there confused and angry
For your lost homies
It is my privilege and pleasure to respond on behalf of the forum community. As this is a rare opportunity to speak while everyone else reads on silently, I shall try to do justice to the occasion and to the sparrows, pigeons, blue tits, and starlings.
This is one of those three hankie occasions when we celebrate the commitment of a myriad of birds who flock to our gardens in the presence of those who care most about them. It is one time when it is not only acceptable but even expected that we - and especially I - should be sentimental about them. We live in temporary times. Everything is temporary. Consumer durables are no longer durable. Companies that once were household names disappear overnight. Relationships come and go, and commitment is as rare as an ice cream in the Sahara . Even a birdbath is no longer a prerequisite for Alan Titchmarsh's greatest designs. So let us celebrate the decision of the chaffinch to commit itself in the traditional way through repeated visits.
So let us congratulate the blackbird and the humble robin for taking this significant step, and let us wish them all happiness from this day forward. Ladies and gentlemen of DiS, please rise and join me in drinking a toast to birds.
and demand ...something
i don't know what your point is
without spoiling their appetite but don't like Milky Ways.
outside of commercials?
triple decker sandwiches?
my first thought
that's the correct thing to do. People who like evenly numbered things are momos.
because... all loaves of bread have to weigh a multiple/factor of 400g (most are 800g or 400g, but you get the occasional 200g or 1600g (WOW!) loaf)
& you would not believe the discussions about slice thickness in npd meetings, or the letters from consumers regarding slice thickness.
Solution: buy 2 of the same loaf, then you end up with an even number of slices altogether!
