    I do full English but grill the bacon and poach the egg.   None of the rest.

    We have an occasional bag of crisps,  plain with the blue salt bag.   We don’t use the salt.

    Chocolate is my temptation but it has to be good stuff.

    Back when I used to eat canned tuna, my favourite sandwich was tuna mayo with salt and vinegar crisps. I still haven't found a good substitute for that.

    You just can't please some folk

    Hmm..

    Oh dear!

    My remark about the BBC and potatoes was meant as a joke.
    Like the "horseshoe" meme I posted, because the BBC news had a hand in causing the panic over petrol.
    You obviously have no natural sense of humour.

    I don't understand why people eat crisps.  Seriously unhealthy, not very tasty and then all those horrid packets that probably can't/won't be recycled.
    I explained why my wife likes to use the roughage of a few crisps to help her many tablets go down.
    Good enough reason for you?

    Although I don’t like crisps, I do find that a slice of hot buttered toast and a cup of tea make pills go down a treat.
    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.

    I always recommend a lump of banana to help tablets go down.  For kids, put it in a spoon of jam. For cats , insert in a piece of raw liver.  My favourite as a kid was crisps in  with a ham sandwich (not on the side)

    I laugh when things are funny. As yet you've offered nothing which meets that criterion.
    Your hysterical golf joke was as dull as the game itself and the overwhelming majority of those who play it.
