I could just pop in a blank post with no explanation and I think everyone would know why I have mine :)

Is it not possible to make this into a sticky?

Mine is from a game called "Pay day" that I had when I was younger and it had a factory in it called the "dipsy doodle noodle factory" and it amused me :)

EDIT: Peecee beat me to it :(


heeheeeee!!! That's because I'm so bored with paperwork that I keep sneaking onto PP... :oops: :P

Sorted. The mods don't like too many stickies, because they push the other threads down; but we haven't got loads of stickies in Chit Chat at the moment.

*must start more ice cream threads* :-k

I chose irnbrubar because i love irn bru and i also love irn bru chewie bars. Don't know if you get them everywhere or just up here but they are awsome - and only 10p (well at least they were the last time i bought one). I'm sure any scottish person will agree with me :)

Yes Tizer still exists; I don't know where sells it, I know a few of our local fish and chip shops do or did a few months ago (I hate chips so rarely go in).

We work across a small field from The Findus Factory (ok it closed down at Christmas because it had a big fire) but we used to get the smell of burnt toast regularly - it was ok for a bit but quite gross after a while. We figured it was the bread crumbs from their 'Crispy pancakes'; they also used to waft some other smells over but I don't think we could ever agree what it was - it was nice though.

Oh right! I cant say i've seen it in any supermarkets in recent years. I remember when Tizer seemed to be everywhere.

haha When I lived in Cornwall I used to live round the corner from a factory that made biscuits, fudge etc So we could always smell some kind of baking.
