And then there were school dinners...

I was having dinner with an English friend on Monday. Her child passed his plate, wanting some potato salad. I scooped a spoonful and thwacked it onto his plate, with true school dinner-lady technique, adding a screechy, high pitched, "Deryouare, luv! Next!"

Alas there was no Cornflake tart for dessert.

After I sent the link I found the "Meat Marketing Board"'s slogan, "Slam in the lamb."

Don't remember that one.
