All this scratching is making me itch

All this scratching is making me itch. To placate Tom’s fear below I believe an in depth discussion of the scratching issue is exactly the kind of thing this publog should be doing. And for fear of alienating any US audience, said article about the diet value of Pork Scratchings shows exactly where Americans go wrong with the whole pub ethos. They take the scratching, a food which is pretty much deep fat fried fat and advocate its use as a diet food.

A corrolary if you will might be American beer (I’m wandering into very dangerous territory here). Well, let’s stray from controversy by talking about the universally revilled brand Budweiser. Two things about Bud. Firstly it is weak as piss in the States. Warning to any American who inadvertently has a bottle in the UK – its a good two percent of alcohol stronger over here. Now there is no point in shandy weak beer, especially tasteless shandy weak beer.

The second thing needs no explaination. Bud Light.

According to this article, some scamster in the States has published a diet book which makes use of pork scratchings (or ‘pork rinds’ as they are even less tastefully called over there) in its recipes. So sales of scratchings to dieting women have apparently skyrocketed. We’re possibly veering a wee bit away from strict pub-based content here, admittedly.

What are the most-performed songs in Britain?: few surprises (is there no poll bloody “Angels” won’t do well in?) in this survey. The most-played songs in the UK’s DJ Sets list will no doubt please certain Phats-and-Small-lovin’ readers of this weblog.
