Flan and quiche sound a bit "French" for what is a "British" sportscar? :lol: :lol:

I'm afraid that I can't be bothered reading this thread as we've been up and down this street too many times already.

I'm reminded of The Beatles song BABY you're a Rich Man. So, perhaps we should all just Let It Be?

That was when it was cool to say baby... It isn't so cool now!

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

But you have read this thread

Worse than that you have commented on it :lol: :lol: :lol:

I suppose your silent protest wouldn't have carried much weight :twisted:

PS. I had finished with this topic but something made me look again this morning. Glad I did now, it made me titter!
