So one Test win (albeit overwhelming, humiliating etc etc etc) constitutes 'retaining the Ashes', does it, Adam?  :wink:

I mean, it's not that I think we have a chance, but you might at least give us the privilege of actually stuffing us, rather than just assuming you will.......

Adam

Adam - sorry cobber, this little jab is for Simon. Even taunting J Rayner about his turned up cuffs in the Observer Food Mag. won't have the same savour today for Simo today I think.

It was one of the very saddest cricketing moments in the last one hundred years, so I would never be as tasteless as to actually make fun of such an event.

I have supported Rotherham United for nearly 35 yrs. I can take such sporting humiliation as a matter of some normality

But do let's start a thread about Rayner's turn ups.

True, true, but this wasn't your normal garden variety humiliation, this was a once in a century humiliation event. The sort of thing that most people don't have to experience at all in their lifetime - like the turn-ups.

Adam, when you've lived in Britain a bit longer, you'll realise that this kind of sporting humiliation is something we deal with several times a year. Think the Scots and the Faroes.

To hell with Violet Crumbles, what you really want is a Picnic Bar. And I thought the way to eat a Tim Tam was to nibble around the outside, then pry off the top bicky, then lick the chocky stuff off....I guess even national rituals change when you're gone for long enough....sigh.

My other social media is all atwitter, so to speak, about Tim-Tams showing up on grocery shelves in the USA at Target, Wallmart, Kroger, etc. What flavours are you finding?

 

I tend to be a purist and prefer the originals, although really like the special offering "Virgin Espresso Martini" (wouldn't that be coffee flavour?-) and have been buying them up on sale before they disappear.
