Should be banned.

Had a lovely lunch of gruyere and bacon stuffed loin of pork with Normandy sauce, asparagus tips, with cracked potatoes. Food of the gods at a very reasonable £1.50 for us permies. You should hear the contractors whine about having to get the value sandwiches or soup on the contractor rates!

Can anyone beat that for a canteen lunch?

Run along and fetch another bottle Wilms, there's a good fellow. And be quick about it

I say Hooters, this burgundy's obviously a cheapo chateau permieaux; shall we order a Vosne Romanée?

I can beat that. Here at clientco contractors are held in high regard.

At lunchtime the perms turn up at contractors desks with a throne on a plinth, a perm on each corner and a bugler to lead the way. We are carried to the restaurant to the sound of music and we are announced to all insundry when we arrive.

Once seated a small midget waiter brings you your food. A five course affair. A rather skinny man will then check your food for poison by taking a try of each course, spitting the contents into a gold bucket. A sixteen year old naked virgin from the South Sea Islands then feeds you by placing your food on a silver spoon. On completion you are then carried back to your desk where a Thai lady provides a soothing head massage.

Today we had Swan and all for a £1

He's not going to spin into a singularity screaming seafood calamari is he?

Anyway. There must be a sub categorization of midgets.

He's a tall midget, he's a short midget. Oh he's just about Mary's size that one????

Is midget the politically correct term?

I think I technically am one. Nearly.

No I believe midget is a derogatory term.

I believe the acceptable term these days is oompa loompa.

As my Mum said when I had this discussion with her 'well, I know I'm not allowed to call them goblins'.

Excellent! :yay:

Reminiscent of Chris Morris as some of his verbal over-runs.

"Proof if proof be need be".

". . . has that story with him reporting from there".
