    Good one FD. There’s something I cant read next to the Matt Preston shot. “Drizzled with a glossy….?”

    Love the way 5he robotic Julia springs out of the crucible and starts speaking.

    Slinkies? Must be because of this: “Some people are like slinkies, not really good for much but bring a smile to your face when pushed down the stairs.”

    Jesus you are a funny bugger, First Dog

    That would be aioli Venise.
    Which just goes to show, that as a chef,
    Firstdog makes a very fine cartoonist. 🙂

    aioli, Venise.

    Aioli (Provençal Occitan alhòli[1], Catalan all-i-oli) is a sauce made of garlic and olive oil. Normally egg is also added for ease of mixing.

    Essentially a garlic flavoured mayonnaise 🙂

    Brillant First Dog. Kim Carr as an ewok is utter genius.

    PADDY: I am pounding my head and asking myself ‘How can I be so stupid?’ Of course it’s aiöli. One of those glorious foods which my medico occasionally trots out, as being terrible for people, along with butter, triple-crème cream and everything else which makes life worth living.

    As my cholesterol is normal I don’t see why I should listen to him. So I frown and ignore him. Then he gets nasty and asks me how much wine I drink?

    … and secret ingredients …. an M for maths viaMacDonalds, an I for Ideological Israel insertion, a W for willful woodchipping Wimpout.

    Oh, and of course a streak of pommie whiner diluted by Australian sunshine.
