There is a word that makes me cringe
And feel I want to vommy
I know I really shouldn’t whinge
But that damned word is “yummy.” [Read more…]

Oh, Daily Fail, your writing has excelled itself this time

It seems like only yesterday that we shared a collection of writing whoopsies from the UK Daily Fail website and yet here we are again with another fresh crop. Enjoy. (And Daily Fail staffers feel free to take the wee-wee from our stuff on here. If you dare.)

Caesar Salad. And don’t forget proper anchovies…

Whether you love or hate Caesar Salad, it’s popular enough – and ruined often enough by restaurants – to merit a slightly rude poem all about it. Bon appétit.

Funny rude poem about caesar salad by Suzan St MaurCAESAR SALAD

Caesar Salad, that’s my joy – a culinary homily
Repeated in Brit gastropubs with regular monotony
And Stateside served in volumes big enough to feed a family
But, for me, it’s an excuse for sheer and bloody gluttony.

Now, God help the commis chef who forgets about anchovies
And not those boring pseudo fresh jobs, thank you very mucho [Read more…]

This includes burning stuffed bean bags adorned with images of “The Guy” (i.e. the unfortunate Mr Fawkes) on top of bonfires…

…and letting off noisy fireworks that terrify small children, dogs, cats, horses and wildlife.

At around the same time those not hiding under furniture are expected to tuck into burnt sausages, burgers, baked potatoes etc. cooked on or in bonfires built from a year’s worth of junk and garden crap to further celebrate our Guy’s dismal failure at lighting up anything other than his cigar if he was lucky.

Here, then, is a tribute to our d*ckhead Guy and the chaotic tradition he created… [Read more…]
