Well then, I guess you really don't want to know about how chocolate causes zeta waves to shoot from your spleen straight into your pituitary gland and turn your endocrine system into a Pheromone Broadcast System for extraterrestrial xenophiliacs, do you?

Cheers,
Marc

Marc´s post made me look for some sausage instead of chocolate in the fridge, but then I saw the word LINDOR in this thread. L-I-N-D-O-R, the 6 letters to die/kill/sell body/soul/wife/husband/children/grannies for!!! So who cares about extraterrestrial xeno-thingies? LINDOR for everybody! I open this one RIGHT NOW

Well, now, I think this is needlessly exclusive and highly discriminatory. For some of us who like the albino fake chocolate almost as much as the real stuff and who may have "real chocolate" as a migraine-trigger, surely an exhaustive study into whether albino fake chocolate is an acceptable non-triggering substitute is of immense interest and should very seriously be looked into (I volunteer!).

(Please note, any person who mentions the word "carob" will be tracked down by a very select swarm of Pirate Ninja Squirrel Disco Dancers from the Montsnmags Enterprises Solid Gold Dancer Planetary Invasion Division, beaten severely with chain-mail leg-warmers, and forced to eat their own kneecaps through a straw).

Cheers,
Marc (who had some white chocolate Massimos icecream for dessert last night)
I'd go with the white chocolate as the null hypothesis.

And what is carob?




Oh crap!

While waiting for Marc, carob is a poor substitute for cocoa, containing no caffeine. More about it
here.

The Lindt bar I have in front of me has no milk in it, although it informs me it may contain traces of it. It does, however, have vanilla in it - not much, but certainly enough to taste

Now, you don't get away with it with a such a mildly critical "poor substitute" comment (it's hardly a criticism; more like a slap with a damp hanky). So that'll be two straws I need, then? And the beating?
