    Hmmm... it's barely been six weeks since Christmas? Who on earth wants Plum Pudding again so soon? Maybe the day is for those who didn't get any at Christmas, so they don't have to wait the rest of the year for their next chance.

Bon mots

"Be careful not to be the first to put your hands in the dish. What you cannot hold in your hands you must put on your plate. Also it is a great breach of etiquette when your fingers are dirty and greasy, to bring them to your mouth in order to lick them, or to clean them on your jacket. It would be more decent to use the tablecloth."

-- Desiderius Erasmus (Dutch theologian. 27 October 1466 – 12 July 1536)
