OK, I’ll start (a parlour game)

Aylesbury duck, Bakewell tart, Cheddar cheese, Dover sole, Eccles cakes……

Carry on, if you feel so inclined! Either solo or in a crowd!

This is your chance to punish those whose hangovers render them susceptible to the mere mention of food.

  6. Well, class, we didn’t do very well, now did we?

    The game is alphabetical. Place names and food. Only young John seems to have got the idea. 🙂

    So I’ll start another round:

    Arbroath smokies, Bath buns, Cheshire cheese, Dublin Bay prawns……

    No repetition allowed.

    NO repetition allowed!

  8. You know I had thought that most here, (being generous) had the IQ of above a carrot.
    I rescind my earlier opinion!
    What a bunch of half wits!
    What is there not to understand about alphabetic organisation of place names and subsequent dish?
    I declare!
    Festive addling or wot?
    The only glint of redemption being West ‘frican Yams, which I feel were misspelt as being the original West fricking Yams!!

    Totters off sideways, lamenting, shaking head.

  9. Obviously different rules apply according to where you learned the game! In our version the food stuff is alphabetical, but the place name does not have to be.

    No. in none of those cases are the place names AND food alphabetical.

    The place names for Bath Buns, Eccles Cakes and Turkish delight are also alphabetical though not sequential, perhaps more clarity is required in the rules.

  11. It’s quite obvious to me that a third official is needed, a TMO, a video ref, call him what you want, rugby has one as does cricket as well as most other sports (with the notable exception of that football/soccer offering which is still stuck in the dark ages.)

  12. I must admit I thought the rules were pretty clear, or at least that is how I interpreted them. I recognised that my contribution could quite possibly be challenged, but I thought it worth a try.I suppose I should have said Queensland nuts aka Macadamia nuts.

    Somebody once told me that they are the only commercial food product that is indigenous to Australia. I wonder if that is true or not. I suppose I could google it.

  13. LW, you’re probably too young to remember the 11+ exam. Typically a question would show a list (as in my four foods) and ask you for the next few in the series. Garbled? Naeh. Only to the failures! 🙂

  14. Sipu indigenous to Hawaii too!

    Apart from that, bugger, just shows you how easy it would be to start World War III !
    That so many people could interpret/misinterpret such a stunningly simple example to follow in so many differing ways. Quite an eye opener.

    Hi, CO, I don’t wish to start WW4, (WW3 clearly being well under way 🙂 )but apparently not. “Macadamia seeds were first imported into Hawaii in 1882 by William H. Purvis. The young manager of the Pacific Sugar Mill at Kukuihaele on the Big Island, planted seeds that year at Kapulena.[4]”

  16. sipu, aargh gertcha! we’re on WWIIII by now!
    Really about macadamia? I don’t doubt you for a moment, then they all lie about it here! I admit I never checked! But one is given to understand by the packaging.
