No Spitting

Well, look here! Someone's brought back Mystery Biscuits from the airport lounge of some hideous self-catering destination, as per the tradition in offices across the land. This week our taste-buds are delighted by something called 'Romany Creams', which the very name takes me back to a fairground of my youth where I met a gentleman of Romania who was more than happy to illustrate you don't have to be of a certain height to ride. And all the subsequent joys of a Big Dipper, of course.

Compounded by the other reason why I bring him up is that he used to spit like a navvy, and not just in the bedroom. And this came to mind this very weekend as there are hilarious calls for spitting to be banned in the UK by the Keep Britain Tidy campaign.

Keep Britain Tidy? Yeah, right. I can smell the mimsy hands of the Gay Council all over this, using some arcane government department as a cover. It's surely the first wave of new directives that are slowly coming in to make the UK a little more pink, like the banning ugly boys in the pants in soap operas, of which we've had a sudden glut over here. And while I believe that to be mandatory, should there really be calls for a obligatory EU chintz requirement in all homes?

Run free, say I. Don't let them get you! Buy one of our t-shirts, stating 'If You Loved Me, You'd Spit'. You know it makes sense.

(What are Romany Creams, anyway? I take them to be Gypsy Creams with delusions of free spirit and less goats, and possibly a better caravan?)

On a kind of related note: I saw someone spit into the wind today... always hilarious.
Hmm... romany creams. So many innuendoes, so little time!

Ooh! You've linked me!
But moving on- Long Live the Gay Council!
I think I could live with the chintz if the ugly soap stars were abolished- although that said, I'm a Neighbours fan, and the pretty people are practically all it has going for it.

Weren't Romany Creams once featured in a Victoria Wood sketch? Possibly Acorn Antiques?

Gyspy Creams: Could be the title of a lesbian porn film?

Irish hankies should be next. What's a spit without a mouthful of tobacky anyway.

Romany Creams are delicious South African biscuits....very firm crunchy biscuits so not to be confused with limp ones.

How dare you refer to South Africa as a 'hideous self-catering destination'! :-)

Oh I lump anywhere that's not Monaco such, Mr Nomad!

i don't think of our nomadic cousins eating "biscuits" - they just have roadkill

I'm ordering my "Keep London Clean: Don't Spit ... Swallow" vests just in time for spring.
