I dunno about preztels. Are they related to borax-poking?

>Oho, so pretzels come in bottles these days, do they?

Or so the great British public might believe, according to yesterday's newspapers. Most of the papers that I saw on the news-stand carried a picture of a pretzel alongside Mr President on the front page to illustrate the news story because many (I hestitate to say most) people here do not know what a pretzel is!

Now if Tony Blair had been eating a chip buttie .....

Ooh, Bingley--you may be hearing from A Certain Someone about that little remark! [twinkling eyes e]

Ok, Jo, I'll "bite": what's a chip buttie?

A french-fries sandwich , in my case obscenely smothered in Heinz tomato ketchup(nothing else will do) it is an artery-clogging comfort food of the highest water! . I have no idea why or when the word "butty " became popular.

Rather happily neglected, I should say. Methinks 'tis folly to be wise.
