    Late 1980s at the RADC Officer's Mess there was a dining out dinner for the departing dental officer from 23PFA. At the end of the dinner he asked those who had port and melon whether they had enjoyed it? He then asked whether those who had liver pate had enjoyed it?

    finally he explained that those who had the pate were the ones who had signed on for the dinner only after word got out that he had put money behind the bar to pay for everyone's drinks.

    He then produced the empty Pedigree Chum liver flavour tins.

  9. TBH, it says "fit for human consumption" on dog food (or used to), more than can be said for any packet/tin of pate!

  10. More in LAT:
    Now if you has a randomly selected a sample of 18 British OAPs I'm sure they'd be able to pick out the dog food.
  11. When my sister was married & living in MQs, she cooked the Sunday lunch of Yorkshire puddings veg & tinned stew. She'd had an unholy row with her hubby & got her own back by replacing his with a tin of dog food & he couldn't tell the difference. Hardly surprising really tho' as he was ACC.

  12. Has no one ever tried dog food for a bet before? Or are you all just denying it?
