Your Monday post left me a little hungry this week, though I'm not too sure about that idea of a battered Ferrero Rocher. I liked the Star Trek pancakes!

Hi Tracy,

This frying of chocolate is very much a Northern tradition I think, not something you would generally find on offer down here in the South. Personally I prefer my chocolate unbattered and in its natural yummy state. Still not good for you I know, but imagine all those battered calories!

I loved the story about the Welsh teacher calling in the police to help her out. I have another teaching story which is much worse and comes from the local Somerset BBC news this week ...


This teacher actually got so fed up with the pupils in his class talking, that he lined them all up and put sellotape over all their mouths ... Guess What? ... he got suspended!

Have a great week, thanks for the alternative news bulletin.

The sweetest article is darling! <3

That Forrero Rocher chocolate cake takes the cake!

Thank you for this delicious post!

That teacher should be brought up on charges for what she did. Climate of fear. Glad she was dismissed.

"The day he said he didn't like his teddy, you knew he was a no good kid..." Yea, form some musical that went viral... ROFL

Loved the last one. Was cute! Seemed legit too... LOL

awww Mr and Mrs Potato Head :)
And now I want some fried Ferrero Rocher chocolate.

Shooting Stars Mag said...

Wow, calling the police to yell at a class? How dumb...people really do call the cops for some of the craziest things.

Jess@Fairday's Blog said...

Stabbing a teddy bear? People do the craziest things! The robber asking the taxi to wait was definitely lacking in planning! People continue to amaze me! Can't believe the cost of that lobster pancake... not sure that appeals to me, thank goodness.

Brian Joseph said...

Too bad that those pancakes needed to be eaten.

Live long and prosper!

(P.S. The Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head story is ridiculously cute!)

Mamakucingbooks said...

gosh that is one very strict head mistress. I wonder what she would do if a teacher refused to have her photo taken

So many books, so little time said...

I love these articles, ferrero rocher is my absolute fav chocolate!

I love the Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head story. The photos are amazing. I can see a series of children’s books emanating from this.
That bank robber had some nerve! I can just imagine him sitting in the back of the taxi yelling at the driver to get a move on!
