Spotted Dick??

I was at the grocery store last night and found this. Who would want to buy this? Why would anyone use this for a name of something?

What's the weirdest signage you have found? My DD1 found a billboard that said, "Tuesdays kids eat free clowns"

Ok you all need to go here and enter Camille's contest to win some cool stuff!!

Label on disposable razors:
"For Women With Aloe".

Blech.
I don't know what it is, but it shows *a rose could not be a rose by any other name.*

It's great. It's a traditional British pudding.
All it is is a sponge pudding with currants/sultanas in it. It's tradional to serve it hot with custard.

love and hugs Gina xxx

I am sure that Britons & Aussies are wondering why we call "X" an x... (I can't think of a specific example...)

I think their slang for "bits & pieces" is different from ours...

& after diapering a baby boy, I am suprised that their anatomy has not changed over the millenia... Seriously...

The strangest thing I found was a couple weeks ago that I blogged about. "Homo Sausage". And I did taste it but gave the rest to the cats!
