Yes, but it's a Belgian chocolate I believe. ;)

Dove is a really good American chocolate. Mr. Ber approves. :)

That Wise shop has frozen Yorkshire Puddings! :Q

Why would anyone want to cook some frozen ones? I wouldn't think they'd be all that good and they're not that hard to make from scratch anyway.

That site is pretty overpriced...but most import shops are.

Oh. THAT kind of Monopoly. Gosh I was thinking there was a currency-related term I'm not aware of :P My appologies.

It sounded to me as though Toby was speaking of actual Monopoly money, not of American dollars. ;)


Our money smells nicer than yours! :Wooper:

Yes, but 95% of all Spanish 5€ notes have traces of cocaine in them*.

*this is, sadly, true.

Is that a test they do in banks to see if they are genuine?

The cocaine thing is said about almost all paper money.

A friend of mine works now and again at an auction. Most of the transactions are cash. Anyway, she went to visit a guy in jail and as part of the process of allowing her in they tested her for traces of drugs and found substantial evidence of cocaine on her hands. It was from handling all that cash.

Horrid, eh?
