That just sounds like a pain in the butt.

Why?   I pass the supermarket on the walk home from work every day ;)

Edit: and I don't drive.

btw there's also half a tin of dog food, from when I was feeding the hedgehog before he hibernated a week or so back.  Guess should throw that out!

Do you folks also have to buy a license to own / watch television ?   Or is that just a silly joke that I'd heard ?

You have to take a test, actually. You have to know the names of all 32.849 pokemons, for example.

You havn't seen where I've stored the absinthe.
I've got a heavy drinking spree planned if things go pear-shaped.

Btw I've spotted a frozen jar of Korma sauce and a loose Yorkshire pud.
If you can do anything with those two items it'll be some recipe.
Just mind your teeth with the glass splinters.
I `ll take the Korma sauce please, got some loose Yorkshires of my own, just got to chisel them out of the ice.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

It dosn't matter if your animal,mineral or vegetable.

I'll just fetch an ice pick from Sharon Stone so you can liberate them.
I'll have the Yorkshire Puddings for lunch and wash it down with battery acid.

True, but I know plenty of thin to normal weight Americans, and they all own large refrigerators. And I'll bet there are  a good share of rotund Brits with small refrigerators too.

They're probably full of tofu and hummus.

That's because you don't put chips in the fridge.

Not true.  I've got a standard size fridge with no hummus or tofu and I'm not a river hippo.

Hummus is yummy :yes:  
Tofu not so much :no:
Both can have their share of fat and calories though.

But I agree, frig size could be responsible for girth size, but it certainly isn't always the case.
For Americans it's often what we eat outside our homes-- fast foods,
