It seems I’ve dropped the ball when it comes to uploading new posts. The last few weeks have been hectic with my new job, receiving our shipment from the UK (finally) and generally offending Americans with my ‘distinct’ sense of humour [humor].
I plan to upload a couple of posts this weekend based on the notes I’ve been making (I haven’t been THAT lazy)
A few days ago at work we had some suppliers come into the business with all sorts of gifts and giveaways. Amongst them were several bags of crisps [or ‘chips’ to my American chums] from the UK.
I was so happy as one of these bags were my favourite [favorite]….some deliciously addictive cheesy curls of mouth pleasure known as ‘Quavers’.
There were also a few other bags of crisps [chips] from the same company, ‘Walkers’.
As I was emptying my bag of Quavers all over my face in slow-motion like a badly lit money-shot, one of the guys I work with asked, “Walkers? Who are they?”
I pointed out, through cheese dusted eyes, that they’re the UK version of ‘Lays’.
See? Same logo.
His reply was priceless:
“Is that because in England you guys are super healthy and walk everywhere and in America all we do is lay down and get fat?”
His words, not mine.
Besides, I had a mouthful of cheesy goodness and was desperately trying not to laugh and cover him in it.

Hey, that was a pretty good joke from your friend. I’m hope he thought of it quick as a flash, though. I’d be disappointed to find out he sat down with a pencil and a piece of paper and mulled over it for 15 minutes beforehand.
Actually, he wasn’t joking. That’s why it was so funny. He really meant it!
Woah! That puts things in a whole new light! I thought he was being witty.
He was….unwittingly 😉
Like it! 😀
