Is it just me...?

Postby Jan Van Quirm » Fri Jan 15, 2010 12:13 am

Bit of a steal (in fact a complete rip off :P ) from Private Eye but these little bits of random TV trivia get me through the day, so I've posted a piece to ponder in the Pyramids discussion thread but this is one that's been niggling me all week so I thought I'd start a thread dedicated to these small queries that demand resolution... :wink:

Is it just me - or is anyone else wondering what Rowan Atkinson's doing 'mentoring' on the latest clapped out celebrity vehicle Popstar to opera star

Rowan Atkinson... sometime satirical bad boy

Image
Rollando Villazon... clapped out tenor

are they perhaps related? :shock: :P

Is it just me or does Subway (the international sandwich chain) have a smell all of its own? :? I've never managed to work out what the smell is, but it's exactly the same at every store I've come across in the UK or US.

What is it??? :?

All Subway shops have exactly the same fillings, hence the exact same smell. I'm pretty sure all KFCs smell the same too. :P

This is an Egg McMuffin.

This has to come from The Devils own kitchen. I had a bite of one once and it stuck itself to the top of my mouth. As we all know McDonalds coffee boils at 300 degrees centigrade so I couldn't soak it off.....I damn near choked on the bloody thing....Everyone you see is exactly the same shape, size and colour.

God alone knows what the hen must look like.

Has anyone ever actually managed to get one of things down and more to the point been able to keep it down.......
