    Egg as the Egg...Eggs!
    Yes, I am doing a Lee & Herring TMWRNJ gag for the two other people that will recognise it!

    It may not be the exact comic colours tone...

    ...but I think the vibrancy of this rather radioactive shade of mint works in the spirit of pre-digital four-colour comics hues!

    If you lads that I actually like don’t start playing nice I’ll come over there and take all of your toys away!

    I too favour the Boneless Banquet. I worked at KFC for a few years and I can tell you that only the real old-school chicken-slingers know how to make decent gravy - one bag of filter scrapings and TWO packs of gravy mix, not the officially prescribed one packet. That’s the secret right there, ignoring the rules.

    Tempting...they’d go nicely with my Adidas Tron shoes.

    TMWRNJ!! Consider the lily, though.

    @bcm77 I wasn’t sure if you had already pre ordered or were waiting for it to land first and thought as it’s a top notch figure that it might sell out quickly!
    Watching second series of Taskmaster and I’m laughing at the pineapple one!

    On the subject of Xmas specials, I tried the festive burger from maccies yesterday - bit like a Big Tasty, but with stuffing flavoured Mayo on it. Not Bad.

    The big hitter is next week when Greggs unleash the Festive Bake….. nom nom!!

    It’s gone a bit Autobots Vs Decepticons here in the last few days. At least we have our own lore on how The Great War started.

    That sounds really nice. I'll have to give that a go.

    And add me to the boneless banquet crew! The chicken pieces are nice, especially if you request breasts, cos we all know thats the best part, but the BB gives a great mix of tasty.

    TBF I am surprised there wasn't much more drama in 2020, when lockdown was in full swing and people could only go outside for a state-sanctioned 20' run in their neighbourhood. The tension must have been legendary for almost every single user.

    Takes a trip to Smyths, hoping to find MOTU stuff on sale like on the website. Items ring at full price in store. Meh.

    Ordered with free delivery at the sale prices but why not ring proper at the store? Oh well.

    The TF isle was a bit slimmer. Wingfinger on sale at 9.99, but the rest were Kingdom Blackarachnia, Airrazor, Arcee and Wheeljack galore. Netflix last wave still plentiful, vintage BW wave 1, Xpanse, Draculus, some stray SS Jolt. No SS86 bots.

    Went to the mega toystore and left with a blind pack Among us figure. As you do ;)
