Simples! He'll duct tape them together and use the blunt end as a little shovel...

Oh, Julia, you crack me up ...

That is not a steak pie. That is a Scotch pie. Fromwhat I could gather, made mostly of a mixture of spam and "Chunkey", wrapped in a soggy pastry. The important thing with them is, they MUST spray HOT fat all over the three people sitting next to you, and pump super heated steam (Thats why they have that hole you can see)up your nose when bitten into, the edges MUST be burned to a crisp so hard that it makes pork scratchings look like chewing joghurt in comparrison, and the bottom MUST be so soggy that it falls out, spreading the remaining hot fat all over the dogs head causing HOURS of amusement.

Nothing like a Scotch pie on the way home from the pub.

Thanks, 'von Spreuth', it is useful to be reminded from time to time that there are whole areas of life's rich warp and woof that have somehow evaded one's experience. In this case, and given your graphic description, immense gratitude to the fates is the only proper re-action.

Glad I could be of help. :-))

To be fare, if you get the pies that are made by a PROPER butcher, or old Granny Mc whotsit down the road, they are NOT quite the same thing.

They CAN be really excellent when made by an expert.

I can believe it. A description of a haggis is enough to turn most stomachs but, of course, it is delicious, er, in small doses!

Official government measurements show that the world’s temperature has cooled a bit since reaching its most recent peak in 1998.

That’s given global warming skeptics new ammunition to attack the prevailing theory of climate change. The skeptics argue that the current stretch of slightly cooler temperatures means that costly measures to limit carbon dioxide emissions are ill-founded and unnecessary.

Proposals to combat global warming are “crazy” and will “destroy more than a million good American jobs and increase the average family’s annual energy bill by at least $1,500 a year,” the Heartland Institute, a conservative research organization based in Chicago, declared in full-page newspaper ads earlier this summer. “High levels of carbon dioxide actually benefit wildlife and human health,” the ads asserted.

Tarun, it is not so much that global temperatures have cooled, but more that they simply do not appear to have risen in the last 10 years in anything like the way that the 'Warmers' prophesied. All of that, of course, pre-supposes there is some dead certain way in which an 'average global temperature' can be arrived at. Whilst satellites seem to be more accurate than the hoplessly useless surface measurments they, too, have their problems.
