    10th annual Dave's Joke of the Edinburgh Fringe competition

    The full list of shortlisted jokes: I’m not a fan of the new pound coin, but then again, I hate all change. Ken Cheng (Winner) Trump’s nothing like Hitler. There’s no way he could write a book. Frankie Boyle I’ve given up asking rhetorical questions. What’s the...
  2. Horse meat

    After having a discussion on a FB page with an American over Europeans eating horse meat, I asserted that apart from France, it's not a widespread thing. How suprised was I when it turns out Johnny Foreigner loves to chow down on ol' Black Beauty (and sometimes donkey meat). Now I'm no...

    First Gigs

    Was looking at the Gigs thread and saw someone say they wish they could have gone to the Damned gig and got me thinking about the first gigs I went to. Was only just turned 16 for the first one, seems young to have travelled all the way to London with just a mate these days! First three: 1...
  4. World Cup 2026 to feature 48 teams

    Looks like this has been voted through and is official. It looks like there will be 16 Groups of Three in the first round. Draws will be settled by penalties. Top two in each group go through to a 32 team knock-out round. So there's one extra knock-out game and a reduced group stage. I'm...

    Hi all, I had a BBQ yesterday and I've got about 5 days to get shot of a load of meat (burgers, sausages the usual). What I don't want to do is just lob it all down the tip, I don't have any room in the freezer and I don't particularly want to attempt a new take on the Atkins diet. So what I...

    Woolwich Murderers Sentenced

    One whole life term and one for 45 years. Lets hope both serve their sentences hanging by their bollocks for 23 hours aday from meat hooks.

    Bodybuilding protein drinks.

    Does anyone else think these take a lot of the pleasure out of eating protein? Why don't they do them in meat flavours such as steak, chicken, bacon etc. instead of chocolate, strawberry and banana?

    Tom Sharpe RIP

  9. Horse meat

    Would you (knowingly) eat it? I know the Frenchies chow down on Black Beauty, but for some reason us Brits baulk at the idea. I'd try it quite happily - eaten all manner of beasties in my travels, so why not this one?

    RIP Tony Greig

    One of the giants - in every sense - of the game is sadly no longer with us. No longer will we be seeing him dig his car keys into the pitch or hearing "hard and fast", "right off the meat of the bat", "blow it out your arse Bill Lawry". He was someone that lived and breathed cricket and whose...

    Having a BBQ today?

    With either of us being ill for the last month or so, we haven't had much opportunity to update our food blog, but here it is http://themadcookbook.blogspot.co.uk/ with 3 new recipes up and one of them is for dry rubs for BBQ meat... super delicious and easy. Give it a whirl.

    Nice Spot For Lunch in Southend/Leigh etc?

    So it's the missus 30th Birthday tomorrow and I am going to take her for a bit of shopping in Leigh and Southend. Then I'm looking to take her for lunch somewhere. Nothing overly fancy, just a nice bar/bistro type place that serves decent food. Not really a fan of seafood, so more meat based...

    Ultimate Roast Dinner Meat?

    The family and I went to our friends for Sunday roast today. Said friends wife is Canadian and as such she hasn't done a lot of roasts. However she has done her research and she delivered a very enjoyable pork roast. Pork for my mind is the ultimate roast meat as I love it plus you get the...

    Out of the frying pan.

    Just a word of caution. It seems to me a lot of people are pinning a lot of hope on this consortium of local business men. I dont want to **** on anyones chips but at the end of the day we dont know anything about these people, we have been given no information of their plans for the club and...

    KFC double down burger.

    KFC double down burger. Is this an exciting new paradigm in fast food or corporate irresponsibility? Let's be honest - who here hasn't made a sandwich using meat instead of bread?
