Don't these people know what month it is?

The cause was simply cooking it for too long.

Sounds like someone did not eat their meat.

How much brandy was there in the cook when the Christmas pudding went up in flames?

Post script: The pudding was undamaged and can be used again next year. The street was a total write-down.

I actually like eating fruitcake if it is sliced thinly without crumbling, and served with black tea, but even for me a Christmas plum pudding is a step too far. And mince pies should not be allowed with a diameter in excess of 1.5 inches.  By international law.

The secret to eating fruitcake is moderation. It may have "cake" in the name but it is just too rich to eat like cake. You have to treat it like plutonium and not allow it to reach critical mass, or ka-boom. Too much sweet and you're sick of the stuff.

I remember the time when P.W. set my parent's kitchen table on fire making Irish coffee at New Year's. It was a lovely sheet of flames pouring across the wood (which survived unharmed due to the quickness of the fire). It was delightful.

P.W. had quite a few drinks in him at the time. He and his wife were a hoot. The time he backed his car over the cliff down to the river was hilarious. Mind you, a lot of people have gone down those slopes, even sober people. Our street was about 40 to 60 feet above the river. The village also has steep river bank on one side of a very narrow horse-and-buggy era street. No casualties yet, though, that I know off thanks to trees and bushes. Just a lot of laughs.

How can they have any pudding, if they don't eat their meat?

Thanks.  I would've thought $100 would've been a lot of pudding.
