Forgive me, for I have ind-
eed made a spelling error. Kobold, of course, with initial upper case K, it being a noun. I believe I was somewhat distracted at the time, trying to work out whether bus route 27 started or finished at Hammersmith. My diary contains a map of London Underground but not a map of London bus routes.

Overfed rabbits are prone to sticky bottom syndrome, so make sure that Bob doesn't overdo the tuffies.

Rabbits also eat their own poos. Silly sods.

Pray tell us Drapes, what did you do yesterday that was more stupid than starting this thread the day before?

A jar of Colmans English mustard contains 4.5 grams of fat. Who cares, it's not like you're going to eat the whole lot in one go

... I like traffic lights..

.. back when I were lad I ate 2 teaspoons of Colman's mustard, on a dare from my brothers.... didn't throw up but I couldn't taste anything else for the rest of the day.....

....... if you laid all the politicians in the world end to end they wouldn't reach a conclusion?

........ the hair on a human head grows on average 1/2 in. per month, which means the average worth of your hair is - on a mean cost of 5 pds per cut, at 6 visits to barber per year, at 30 pds - such a waste of time I'm going to shave it off....

.... the average cost of a bald head, based upon no. of wet shavers and portion of shaving foam per cut, per year.............

Shan't tell,you will all laugh at me.

I bought a jar of French Mustard yesterday, I like French mustard, but after a while I get sick of French Mustard then go back to English Mustard, then I get bored with English Mustard and go back to the French Mustard.
A similar thing happens with Potatoes, I love Jersey Royal New Potatoes, and look forward to them coming into the shops, but after a while I begin to lust after good old mashed Potatoes.

PS, I really enjoyed me braised steak last night, I had done it perfick, but as usual I had made far to much, small white hound will have a big grin on his face at dinner time tonight.

PPS, I had overdone the onion a bit, I tend to do that for some reason, I always add to much onion.

PPPS, I like French Onions but after a while I grow tired of them and go back to English Onions.


PPPPS, I wonder what happened to the French Onion men, they used to ride around the streets of Tyneside on Bicycles with strings of Onions round their necks, which they sold door to door.

Take a pot of Colman’s English Mustard to the states, and then when at a diner or restaurant, ask if you can use your own mustard. So far they’ve never said no, and on most occasions have asked why, and then if they can try it.

Thinking it is similar to their mayonnaise based stuff, they tend to take a teaspoon full, and then spend some quality time with a bucket of water in a private area of the diner/restaurant. Sorry to all you American Ppruners out there, but I genuinely found out about this by mistake. Admittedly I haven’t stopped yet, sorry, but I don’t feel too bad because a ‘friend’ from Atlanta force fed me some grits! How do you eat that stuff?

PS. You can also try this with a really good strong horseradish.

I suspect the American Prooners gave up on this thread quite a while ago.

I am having a Ham salad for me sunday lunch today,nice bit of ham and a dollop of peas pudding, usual salad stuff, but I have some thinly sliced French onion on it as well, and a dollop of French Mustard on the side of the plate.
All this indulging in French stuff does not mean I have stopped hating the EEC with a great burning hatred.

Shouldn't a map of the London Underground only contain the parts that are in tunnels?

Why is there Peanut Butter Smooth? Crunchy is so superior as to render smooth unecessary.

Is Colonel Mustard French or English?

What's this nonsense about jars of Colmans Mustard there's only way to have proper mustard and that's the powdered stuff from a tin

Oh drat it's coming on to rain again

The trouble with the powdered stuff is one tended to make far to much, as they used to say, Mr Colman got rich on the mustard we threw away, not on the stuff we ate.

The tins when empty, were good for keeping screws in though, once we had thrown most of the mustard away.

Sounds like Henry V to me. Apparently when they released said movie in the states yer average gump stayed away in droves.

They hadn't seen Henry 1, 2 3 or 4 so didn't think they'd understand the plot.

Herr D, Bob thinks he's a rabbit and shuns those fish litter trays. Another thing, do you ever sleep or are you a rabid insomniac? Or do you have clones sitting in for you for the other two shifts?

Movie is Monty Python and the Holy Grail, but let's not go there.

Now, I just got up and had me bagel and tea. I'm on a bagel diet right now having given up burrittos as an unacceptable breakfast food. BTW I have a tin of Coleman's dried mustard powder in't cupboard. I think we use one teaspoon per year.

After Izzy Cohen died and Ahold (that Dutch outfit) bought my local [US] supermarket chain, they stopped having ground-in-the-store peanut butter. A real loss.

I think the present "crunchy" is just "smooth" with a few nut pieces added. Not the real stuff.

The store has gone down-hill in other ways as well.

Hrumph!

There is a distant stunder thorm going on here, I can hear the rumble of tisdant dunder, and me lights are flickerin.
I was having my post sunday lunch kip on me settee and it woke me up
I am watchin Ice station Zebra on channel five.

PS, one has tracked down the fault in the telemetry board one is using as a timer on the physics package, it wasn't the voltage regulator, it was the Z80 CPU, this has been replaced.
The timing is perfect now, Tritium will be injected into the pit just 1.3 shakes of a lambs tail after the shaped charges fire and the plutonium sphere begins to collapse.

I am going to make one of those things that turns your light off and on when yer out next.

Sorry, I meant meteorologists. But he is interested in meteorites as well.

Jeremiah Colman was the person responsible for developing mustard powder in Britain in 1804, but before that the best-known brand was made by Keen & Sons of London - hence the phrase 'as keen as mustard'.

Indeed Twas Henry V,Chaffers, from the highly esteemed, Guess the movie from the written sound effects thread,
It was all that talk of French Mustard, Onions and such,made me think of Agincourt, I always think of Agincourt when I think of the French, although in truth, I seldom think of the French.

Then call we this the field of Agincourt,
Fought on the day of Crispin Crispianus.
