I got Spotted Dick yesterday...

...and DW was the one that I got it from!!!!

OK here's the deal, Spotted Dick is a kind of sponge cake for England. Heinz makes it and sells it in a 10oz can. The label says it's microwaveable, but I ate it cold. Pretty good stuff actually.

DW came home from the store yesterday and tossed me a can of this stuff with the warning "Wanna catch Spotted Dick?"

Now back to your real work....

"I'm gettin' a bit tonight tonight
I'm gettin' a bit tonight
my mother told me I must be quick
if I'm to 'ave some spotted dick
I love me roly-poly
it fills me with delight
I 'aven't 'ad any since Easter
but I'm gettin' a bit tonight...."

from a pub act song I've, unfortunately, been unable to forget in 25 years
