Ramblings: Jaffa Cake Advert Song

Can anybody else remember a Jaffa Cake advert from around 1990 which went (in a Jamaican style accent): Now listen general public for goodness sake, My family they go crazy for those Jaffa Cakes, Like when I’m bouncing little baby on my knee, The first words that he speaks are “They’re orangey”… Jaffa Jaffa…. If you can remember it – plus post here and confirm that I haven’t made this up AND, if you can remember it – the full lyrics to the song. If you’ve got a copy (with video) then an Amazon gift voucher for £5 (or similar) will be heading your way! October 2011 update: It’s been found! See Jaffa Cake advert found

Fun: Maharishi Phucknuckel’s Guide to Zen

Forwarded on to me from my other half from her father: Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow.

Give a man a fish and he…

And familiar with Star Trek’s best ever episode – The Trouble With Tribbles? If so, have a look at Live Granade’s LOL Trek.

News: Walking Speeds and me

The BBC has an article entitled “What walking speeds say about us” and it does hit home for me – every morning, I get infuratated by people just getting in my way when I want to get from A to B.

Meh!
