I wonder if you can mix All-Bran with Bovril to create a tasty low-fat high-fibre snacky soup experience? There's no punchline here, I'm just bored.

(And when she got there, the cupboard was full of tea.)

You could, though I would bet it would taste like bobbins.

Bovril does not, on the other hand, mix well with keyboards.

For values of 'beefy' that no longer ... sob ... include beef.

(Which is why I now buy proper Tesco Beefy.)

Yebbut, at least I'd know, then, wouldn't I.

"Bobbins" is such a good word. Other good words I have been reminded of which today are "hyperbole", "crack", and "eleven" OH GOD I AM CHEWING MY OWN ARM OFF WITH FRUSTRATION AND BOREDOM HERE PLS SEND BADGERS.

Hyperbole is absolutely the best thing ever.

Will this one do?

SQUEE BADGER!

Actually those are a really good selection. I love the woodcut-like one, and the last one is officially today's CUTEST THING EVER WANT WANT WANT. :-) Thank you!

Glad to be of service ;) (There are more woodcut-like ones where I got that from, I'll happily grab 'em if you like)

bobbins.com claims to have the "best resources on the net". It's almost ironic. bobbins.org was excellent and I have a horrible feeling I am going to be sucked into re-reading ALL of it.

"The thing that really gets you about war isn't the brutality.
It's having to wear the same underpants every tupping day for
five years."

It's time for a revival of the word "tupping", I think. :-)

did I already send you this badger? The poem is so cute, if a little hard to read:

The badger does no harm at all
But kills whole hosts of vermin
If in your way he chance to fall
To spare him, sir, determine.

If you've already got that one I'll try to find another :-)
j4 From: j4 Date: September 21st, 2005 04:54 pm (UTC) (Link)
That's great! If you actually have the original of that I'd love to try to get a scan that shows the poem a bit clearer, so I can put it up on my website. (I really need to redo the badgers bit of my site. And, um, all the rest of it. Ho hum.)

Sadly I don't, it was going on ebay a while back but I didn't win it (can't remember if I got sniped or forgot to check it or what), and annoyingly haven't been able to find it anywhere since. Didn't realise it was that rare at the time.

They do have a rather cute mousemat though... you've probably got mousemats coming out of your ears but you might want to pinch the picture :-)

No. Because neither All-Bran nor Bovril are tasty to start with. Mixing them will just increase the yukkiness.
j4 From: j4 Date: September 21st, 2005 12:28 pm (UTC) (Link)
Bovril == God's own cup-a-soup.
All-Bran == nuggets of pure nutrition untainted by taste.

MADE FOR EACH OTHER, I say.

Wouldn't it end up like a gloopy miso soup?

You say that like it's a bad thing!

Yechh. Bovril is a special effect from a bad SF movie: Aliens Ate My Bran

Meanwhile... Badgers:
Urban Badgerlots of little badgers

OMG a GARDEN FULL OF BADGERS oneoneoneoneone! *bounce* *perk*

I thought the whole point of All-Bran was that it had no nutritional value whatsoever, it just passes straight through your body absorbing all the negative chi, bad kidney energy, the green stuff that seeps out of your chakras when they are not properly aligned, etc.

I should be reading the Symantec Ghost Solution Suite manual, but I need a higher level of pre-term panic before it will make any sense.

Bovril is wonderful stuff. All-Bran, on the other hand, is like eating crispy cardboard. I did like Kellogg's recent advertising campaign though, which really put the "shat" into William Shatner.
Meanwhile, have some cute little mustelids on me.
