Theyre a cake. Its all to do with avoiding paying VAT which is collected on biscuits but not on cakes... So there you go

the difference is simple biscuits go soft when they go off and cakes dry up.
And who could possibly compare a Wagon Wheel to the mighty Jaffa.

The proof copy on ebay has been removed. Looks like my efforts have borne fruit Smile Does that mean I can get admitted to the Cellestial Order of The Golden Sprout as an accolyte? Or even a floor sweeper to clean up after meetings? Oh go on... pretty please??

Wagon wheels are much nicer! Specially the jammy ones!

I think it may be one of 'those' cruises...you know, on Hampstead Heath or down Tooting Bec Common way. 100 goes a long way, so I hear from some of my 'meedja' colleagues who understand these things!

Smile

P.S. Wagon Wheels are officially classed as motor-spares and as such liable for VAT. If you import one from abroad it is a Grey Wagon Wheel and subject to Customs & Excise Duty as well...so be warned Smile

You strange man. By the by, thank you very much for my pressies. I now own what must surely be the smallest badge in the world. Excellent. And I am really enjoying the Lovecraft. My that man loved an adjective, didn't he?
