"You're Much Too Fat (and That's That)" - Louis Jordan, 1946

I've been a bit quiet because we've had weekend visitors - John's Uncle Mike, Aunt Eileen, and the lovely Maud. (You might remember that we went to Kent to see them a few months ago.) We had a terrific weekend together, although the weather didn't cooperate as well as we would have liked.

Yesterday afternoon, the four humans had Sunday lunch at a pub located right in the center of our village. It's a very nice place to eat, but it's made even nicer by the fact that it's located only about 5 minutes (on foot) from our house.

Something written on the menu tickled us. Take a look at the photo below - at what's written in the middle of the image...

(Click on the image for a full-sized version, if you'd like.)

We had visions of the pub staff sizing us up to see if we were, perhaps, already too fat - therefore, making it inappropriate for us to be served potatoes and any but the very lowest-calorie veggies!

As it was, we were rationed with only two small roast potatoes each. Hmmmm....

All of you must have had a good chuckle over that statment. Great!

Apparently it was only appropriate for me (well actually each of us) to have one small piece of roast parsnip... :(
