The Great Heartland Biscuit Thread™

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Some of the nonsense contained herein may be very loosely related to The Sisters of Mercy, but I wouldn't bet your PayPal account on it. In keeping with the internet's general theme nothing written here should be taken as Gospel: over three quarters of it is utter gibberish, and most of the forum's denizens haven't spoken to another human being face-to-face for decades. Don't worry your pretty little heads about it. Above all else, remember this: You don't have to stay forever. I will understand.

"Experts" claim there are 520 ways to eat Jaffa Cakes.
I note that they didn't ask any of us.
Cheers.

One of the parents sent it 2 huge packets of Jaffa cakes on Monday when the kids came back. To help us get through the week, she said. :D

Indeed. I never saw the point of Vanilla. There was for a while a strawberry version of them. Which tasted weird. Probably because we are all used to vanilla. Which could be a metaphor for existence.

I know this is only tangentally linked to biscuits, but if anyone hasn't read it yet, there's a hilarious tea towel related thread on the big TSOM FB group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1980147 ... 6201594225

And this, oh best beloveds, is why we sought for so many years to bring our Hibernian brethren back into the fold. Oh, how valiantly we strove to save them, sending first a man who would banish the snakes from their teashops that they might enjoy a nice cuppa in peace. And yet they refused to heed us. Then we dispatched many wealthy and well-bred English people to teach them the ways of tea and its enjoyment, but they preferred to carry on their heathen ways, burning mud and eating so many potatoes that they caused a terrible shortage of them. Oh, if only they had listened to us as we extolled the virtues of the noble Bourbon, the princely plain-chocolate digestive, and the Jaffa Cake, which we gave for them and for many. And who among us gathered here this evening can forget the events of this very time in 1916 when, displaying their ingratitude, they laid siege to the post office wherein parcels of pink wafers, Hob Nobs, and shortbread, gifts from their concerned compatriots across the sea, awaited distribution to the poor and needy among them.
Let it be no wonder, then, that the Free Unionist Congregation of Tadfield had eventually no option but to turn our backs upon them, to cast them into the darkness, to wander the howling wastes, to seek what solace they could in the arms of the even-more benighted heathens that inhabit The Lands Beyond These Shores, lands where a good cuppa cannot be had, lands where proper biscuits fear to tread and where a proper cup of tea is as alien a concept as soap, being polite to their neighbours, and not setting fire to sheep. And let this be a lesson that a similar fate may befall all those who dine upon Rich Tea biscuits with butter, for 'tis but the first step upon the wide and downward-sloping path to the abyss - oh, it's just a Rich Tea with butter, you'll hear them say. Aye, sez I, but where will it end? I tell you, brothers and sisters, I tell you for I have gazed into the abyss and was sore afeared by the sight that met my eyes. I saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the names of Custard Cream, Jammy Dodger, and Nice. Repent and be saved, or suffer the damnation that will befall all unbelievers.
