    Are you referring to the ice cream or my brother?

    If the former, then "no it wasn't, but I thought they were quite tasty", if the latter, then "yes, but stop being homophobic".

        Where I come from, if you called anyone a 'tooty frooty', you woud be liable to get a smack in the chops, so I think you will have to take my word for it that it was an ice cream. (See above).

          "Tooty Frooties" are square shaped fruit flavoured sweets.

            They might be in Wales, where all sorts of strange food is passed off as something else. (Birds' nests bound together with crude oil for instance, are called 'laver bread'). But in Pontefract, definitely ice-lollies I know. I was there.

              I love "Tooty Frooties", (square shaped sweets)...along with "toffee poppets", "flumps", and any other childish sweets, in fact I have had severe withdrawal symptoms since Woolworths closed (no more "pick and mix").

                        Did you catch that news item (?!) about the manager of one of the last Woolies branch to close, who managed (!) to grab the last bagful of pick-n-mix from his store, pay for it, resist the temptation to scoff the stuff, and finally flogged it last week on ebay. It raised £14,000 - or £70 per sweet.

                        PS My favourite type of 'Pic'n'Mix used to be that nutty fudge - until my brother told me the 'nuts' were actually the teeth of the people who worked in the sweet factory.

                              It doesn't bear thinking about, does it.

                              However, when I worked in a residential care home (run by ultra-frugal nuns, I might add), one unlucky inmate was once served rice pudding containing the large and discoloured molar of another resident . This unfortunate person had slipped whilst wheeling in the dinner trolley, bashed her teeth againt the rice pudding 'trough', lost the molar into it, yet carried on manfully, hoping to avoid detection (in case she lost her job in the kitchens). It all came to light when one of the nuns in charge that lunchtime spotted the tooth - fished it out, interrogated the helper and established what had happened.

                              Sister Xavier then ordered all the residents to continue eating the rice pudding, as 'it looked alright' to her.

                                I have no incisive remarks, and I can't even buy cuspid.
                                But I do have many Deeds of InDenture.
