There, now it makes perfect sense.

Take note ladies.

It's cute how they pretend to be human by stringing random words together like that.

FTFA: "It's a matter of practice, whatever the size of the pie," he said. "But there's a lot of thinking involved too. You've got to work out how to breathe, for instance. I'm not giving too much away, but the basic rule is bite, swallow, bite, swallow and breathe through your nose."


Seriously. A description of how to eat. Riveting tale, chap.

/don't give too much away now

While I'll admit my grasp on English pie eating rules is tenuous at best ... It is shocking to me that it took that guy 45 seconds to eat that small pie.

"If everyone eats two pies rather than one," he said, "it follows logically that the pie sector of the economy would double in size."

I have ... and so I'll concede the point ... I guess that does sort of help explain why they needed to cover the things in gravy and why it's exclusion was worth walking out on the contest

FTFA: Drama also engulfed ... a protest against the exclusion of Wigan pies in favour of rivals from nearby but "foreign" Adlington.

Putting the word, "Drama" and "pies" in the same paragraph, to suggest some relationship; that's pure genius.

If the food you're eating doesn't kill you outright then it has no actual dramatic value. It's food.

I know, intellectually, that it's English, the same as i speak (after a fashion) but most of the time British language is gobbledygook to me.

The headline may just as well have said "Aglash flibberty flah flam blan, Wgglhaugh hblablu blah bluh pluh Flabblingglum blum"

Oh totally. Watching good football is totally dependant on a bunch of douchebags who fight eachother for douchebag reasons.

A second Englishman: "A fiver? Can't be much meat in that pie."

I've never had Wigan nor Adlington pies.

I've never been to the UK.

However, when I was in OZ, I tried a meat pie at a place that my son-in-law (a native Ozmium) assured me that was famous for its pies.

Crikey! (nobody says that down there) If there is any resemblance to the UK pies, I'm amazed that anyone could finish one at all. The 2-cup pie had about a 1/4 cup salt in it.

Well when a team sucks as much as Wigan, it's more entertaining watching the douchebags antics. Just needs Martin Tyler commentating...
