Too much of a good thing ?


The BBC news has reported that a man died in a Swansea nightclub from eating too many fairy cakes . . . . . . .

NOW let that be a warning to all our mediating politicians living it up at the Serena day after day with their breaks every hour to fill up on tea, coffee, biccies and fairy cakes. If they don't sort this crisis soon, one of them will more than likely drop dead from excess fairy cakes !

Don't tell me I didn't warn you now!

P.S. Just heard firing of what sounds like tear gas cannisters. Am assuming that the mayoral elections are therefore about to kick off.

Oh Goody !

Hi MC
The sound of tear gas being fired really cheers me up. I land at NBO on Wednesday morning, and there is no room in my suitcase for my gas mask even though I have just taken out all the fairy cakes.

He who lives by the fairy cake shall die by the fairy cake.

I would have thought eating fairy cakes would be political suicide for the macho men who make up Kenya's political elite.

Hope all is ok...

It worries me a little that you chaps in NBI know what a gas cannister sounds like... surely not a good thing!

DM - Don't worry about a thing. Apparently if you put 'Vicks Vapour Rub' under the eyes, it stops the effects of the tear gas !!
- Bet you didn't know that !

Primal - And so said ALL of us !

Mr Bananas - Yes fairy's and macho men are probably not a good mix. Perhaps we'll look into some 'macho' fairy cakes - they could have bolts in them or some other hardware!

Nuttycow - You'd be surprised what different noises I can distinguish - tear gas cannisters, machine gun fire, rifle fire, .... I could go on !

nothing smell more inviting than tear gas on a late monday afternoon - don't forget your salt people!

Must have been something actually in the fairy cakes because if people died from the quantity there'd be no one left over here (USA).

Hi MC
I tried the Vicks theory out when I was in the Police (don't ask!)- it didn't work. All it does is make your eyes smart - like tear gas - maybe that's why people think it works!

Seinlife - I find it really clears the sinuses quite well.

Expatmum - Didn't know the US of A was into their fairy cakes ?! - They do know they're not fried don't they?

DM - Sorry to hear that the Vicks thing doesn't work - what about Vaseline? - It's another one I've heard of. (Personally I've found jumping in the car, closing all the windows, and putting the air conditioning on full blast works for me!)

Deleted comments - all from a marvellous chap called Jason Dittle who spends his life pissing people off by writing spam messages about how he made $800 at some site or other. Have deleted them all so that hopefully he can get the hint and get well and truly lost !!
