I've just eaten a tin of baked beans then realised they were 4 months out of date :oops:
...waste not, want not :lol:

If they look OK (ie they've not gone green or summat), and pass the little finger taste test, it wouldn''t really matter if they're 4 years or 14 years out of date, I'd still eat them :lol:

They didn't taste the best but like you say waste not want not!

It prompted me to do a clear-out of that particular cupboard and I found another tin that was over a year out of date! So could have been worse :D

Easter eggs are fine 4 years out of date.

I once asked a baker how long a cake would keep for, and he replied, "how long does sugar keep for?" :)

If my bulging stomach is to go for, potentially millenia.
It would help if I didn't think that wine was a replacement for water and the odd bit of exercise would actually do me some good
Saying that I did achieve 5000 steps today.

I just noticed that on the Google page. I think the arrow resembles his moustache. I`m gonna do a forensic search of my flat and remove anything that remotely resembles a short slightly curved line. :)

It's the blue tape with serrated edge. Everyone knows Hitler's moustache was blue and serrated, right? My immediate reaction was this was a publicity stunt by Amazon. No such thing as bad publicity? Hitler killed my Grandad so I hate Hitler and everything he stood for. But FFS it's a graphic design, nothing more.

Got it now. I thought the black line was his moustache and the blue tab his nose. :lol:

Wankers! Got an email this evening telling me my cooker will be delivered between 9-12 in the morning but I can rearrange it unless they're already on their way. They can't be on their way tonight and their flipping phone line is open from 9 till 5. Obviously they'll be on their way at 9 tomorrow!! :evil:
