Re: Boy Thread: All Roads Got Back

Bacon is misleading. Smells delicious, tases ok, feels like chewing rubber. (OK, maybe I just can't cook bacon, but still, I'll take a lorne sausage buttie over a bacon buttie anyday.)

Re: Of Japan and Bananas.

That article from the Mirror is pretty funny. Organiser Chris Swan said: I can't believe you can become ill from eating fruit - bananas are supposed to be very good for you. Eating a piece of fruit can be very good for you Chris. Eating 100 pieces of said fruit in 24 hours - probably not a good idea...

To say that suggests that chavs generally aren't racist/nationalist, which doesn't seem right.
