Omelette, Chips 'N' BeansEwww. So a few days ago a big box that said “Welcome to your new home!” was delivered to our house. (We actually didn’t move; we just renewed the lease but the letting agency still put a sign out front, which is presumably how the box people found us.) Anyway, my sister opened it to find that it was full of samples: toilet paper, air fresheners, food, etc. She, of course, promptly ate all the cookies. Last night Snookums and I were going through the rest of it when we found this. That’s right, “Omelette, Chips ‘N’ Beans” in a can. And that, my friends, is British cuisine in a nutshell. A soggy omelette and a handful of fries dumped into a can of baked beans and hermetically sealed for all eternity. Can you imagine what kind of a desperate, hung-over, poor fool would eat such a thing? And these people had an empire on which the sun never set. The mind boggles.

  1. Mmmmm, that looks kind of nummy in a really nasty way.

  2. Well, I suppose it wouldn’t be so bad if you actually cooked yourself an omelette and fried up some chips and then mixed them up with some beans on your plate. But this… they’ve been sitting there getting all mingled and mushy for EVER. How gross is that?
