The Fattie Fightback Begins

Heartening news from Germany, where, in a noble gesture of self-sacrifice, a fat man has demonstrated that the well upholstered can save the health services considerable sums of money and much unpleasantness. The Fattie Fightback has begun...
And engimatic news from Canada, where Bryan is at large on the endless prairie, doing heaven knows what - but whatever it is, it will be for the benefit of human kind and the planet in general, of that you may be sure.

  1. Nige, you know I'm one of your biggest fans but you're not being imaginative enough. Can't we do something crazy while Bryan's away? You know, like that Pink Panther film where Clouseau comes back from the death to discover that Cato has turned his flat into a brothel?

    I'm not suggesting we do that, though I know somebody who could do you a tasteful pink background.

  3. That articles reminds me that, until recently, I had no idea that deep-fried Mars bars were a British invention. It sounds so typically American and is usually found only in county fairgrounds or traveling circuses.

  4. The North Britons also deep fry pizzas - I inadvertently had a slice of one once, being drunk or something, and can report that they are every bit as vile as you'd expect.

  5. Deep-fried pizza? Uggh. In other news, it appears that the Monte Cristo sandwich is making a comeback in US restaurants after a prolonged absence(judging only by recent menu changes in a couple of local diners).

    Will he be doing his bit for the environment by driving around in a huge truck?

  7. Deep-fried pizza is a combination of the best of British with Italian flair.
