SWEET TALK

Our friends were giving a dinner party for first-time guests.

The hostess had gone off to the kitchen to fetch the desert: her speciality - sticky toffee pudding.

In her absence, her young son confided to the guests that they were about to enjoy the family's favourite afters.

"How nice," smiled one of the guests indulgently.

"Yes," said the boy innocently, "it's called stiffy cocky pudding..."

Out of the mouths of babes and, as they say, sucklings...

Reminds me of the anecdote told in the latest "Empire" - about Alfred Hitchcock being given a cake on set for his birthday and shouting out "Who wants some Hitchcake cock?"

Ian - Thanks, that's funny! You can just hear him saying it in those slow, measured tones and with a completely straight face...

Scrooge - Well, all I can say is, thank heavens we've still got you as a bastion of good taste and refinement to prevent the whole thing from going down the tubes! D'you still read VIZ, by the way?! ;-))

An outstanding Gentleman's periodical Mr B ! You force me to add a story of my own to lower the tone still further. I bumped into an old friend one day and asked him what he was doing. As it happened he had recently moved from hospital to local radio sports broadcasting and was assisting commentary on a big football game that weekend. I promised to tune in but forgot until halfway through and had to listen to the match reporter for a while before, finally, he handed over to my friend for his analysis... "Well it was a great goal and the home side have rightly shot up shit since, er shit up ship erm shut up shop..." He has moved job since.

Apologies for taking it lower but back when I was a kiddie, it was once announced that we were having "lemon turd cart" for dessert. Very nice.

Oh goodness, I hope you weren't offended when I said you brits eat strange things. I was kidding. You see, we on the other side of the pond like a little stiffy cocky every once in a while too, but we usually like it plain, not made into pudding. HaHa! Hope you're doing well.

No, not offended, Anne, I just overlooked publishing your comment for some reason...

It's there now (fourth from the top) along with your saucy second comment!! ;-)
