a blob of milliput would stop the leak, it is waterproof and heat resistant. You would probably get one of those kettles without a name for less than the milliput and a bag of crips thrown in too (but not in the kettle no)

Not having eaten any crips for months now I was astounded and amazed at the variety of crips in a vending machine what I saw yesterday. There were some there called Bang Bang Spicey Thai and they particularly grabbed my attention.
On the pack there was a bold claim that they were a 'NO NONSENSE HUNGER FIX' in capital letters. I pondered for some time about this and wondered how hungry you would have to be before they stopped being a no nonsense hunger fix and if there is actually a scale of hunger and if there is, what or how is it measured. I came to a quick guessed conclusion that had no research or scientific backing whatsoever, that the scale would probably be in calories. Or in hunger pains. Or something else.
Then there was an even better statement on the front of the packet, glaring at viewers under a small but quite bright bulb, lighting up the Bang Bang Spicey Thai and other potato and corn snacks, not even to mention the chocolate bars that were nestled below in spiral nests longing for a punter to insert their toiled for cash into an always open slot, yearning for the fescialised corkscrews to torque into action, teasingly pushing the fatty, sugar laced product to their lemming like descent.
The statement read as follows 'NEW and IMPROVED'. This time the 'and' was not deemed worthy enough of the full military salute of capital letters and was demoted to rank and file of lower case.
How can they be new, and improved? Either the old recipe has been improved or they are a new product. Fascinating stuff.

Perhaps the sell-by date has been printed using a better quality ink!

Automatic dispensers have come a long way since the vintage, bluish Bryn Dairy milk dispensers of the 1960s. These days, they are much more insistent about taking your money before considering releasing any goods.

Well done to Rascal for not eating any crisps for ages.
It's 2 years for me now on the no crisp regime.

We got a Tescos's voucher worth an EXTRA 25 points that can be redeemed for popcorn or crips.

Only at Tescos for popcorn or crips as far as I am aware Tref. There is no evidence of the Dublin Packet having a loyalty scheme is there? It would be good though if pubs did a buy one get one free scheme or a loyalty card venture whereby you buy crips or popcorn and get 25 extra points.

The Dublin Packet could do a loyalty scheme on crips. It could be called the Dublin Packet o'crips. You buy one packet of crips and they double it as in Dublin your Packet of crips with the O'crips as in an Irish name. Poor yeah.

Jean, a sort of BOGOF scheme for crips with a bit of play on words.

Is there any Guinness flavour or Guinness flavoured crips.

I asked for a pint of Diet Guinness in a pub once.  She wasn't amused.

The way to get slim is to watch other people drinking Guinness, but ... not to have any yourself.

The image of Mab, sat in a pub, watching others drinking Guinness and vigorously raising and lowering a non-existent pint is very disturbing. Would you have virtual crips to go with it Mab? Porn crackers maybe?

Does anyone know who invented crisps?

One website says this:
In the summer of 1853, Native American George Crum was employed as a chef at an elegant resort in Saratoga Springs, New York. One dinner guest found Crum's French fries too thick for his liking and rejected the order. Crum decided to rile the guest by producing fries too thin and crisp to skewer with a fork. The plan backfired. The guest was ecstatic over the browned, paper-thin potatoes, and other diners began requesting Crum's potato chips

And this is Mr Crum:
