Warning, may contain raisins

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

Printed on a box of raisins from Asda:

Raisins (100%).
Suitable for Vegetarians.

Do we really a list of ingredients in a box of raisins?  And is there anyone, anywhere on the planet (except Glasgow) who doesn’t realise that fruit is suitable for vegetarians?

As the late, great Douglas Adams said in So Long and Thanks for all the Fish (Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy):

Hold stick near centre of its length. Moisten pointed end in mouth. Insert in tooth space, blunt end next to gum. Use gentle in-out motion.

‘It seemed to me,’ said Wonko the Sane, ‘that any civilization that had so far lost its head as to need to include a set of detailed instructions for use in a packet of toothpicks, was no longer a civilization in which I could live and stay sane.’

    A-ha, however, in Glasgow, the raisins are waxed in Lard, so are unsuitable for vegetarians, jews and muslims

    How would they describe Gordo shafting us?

    Gordo is, what they term, a “dafty”, that is, he has a job and this is compounded by the fact he is not also signing on and producing “bairns” with his Sister\Cousin\Niece\Blood relative (never put your peter into someone yer no kin wi’, they’re a’ a bunch o’ daftie cunts and ye never ken whit’s gonnae cum oot), I think that might be gaelic and the reason why we have more ginger babies than the welsh, though i will bow to any anthropological researcher who has spent time at the M8 terminus.
