It's not a joke- Greggs is a sacred place in our home. We live across the road from one and it has become our staple lunchtime diet. I will not have a word said against their fat-filled pastry confections.

Agreed, but am I the only one bored of hearing it trotted out? Perhaps so.

I didn't think it was a joke.

CharleeInChains Tue 28-Oct-08 12:27:49

And don't you dare start on this guy

Shootfromthehip - See I don't mind an inventive twist like that. And apologies, very rude of me to cast aspersions on your culinary choices.

I never tire of the greggs/ fruitshoot admonishments. I also like the chicken nuggets higher moral ground. wink

PuzzleRocks Tue 28-Oct-08 12:29:16

MMAM. No. I'm enjoying your berating.

I think what makes them so funny is that there has to be a line that I cannot allow my piss poor parenting to plunge below. I now have one.

Didn't someone on here once mention a greggs drive through? Madness.

shootfromthehip Tue 28-Oct-08 12:32:43

I covet the drive-through envy

I see, so more a public service message. Then I retract my statement in the interest of all our children. I'm always happy to be educated. smile

Drive-through, or drive-by?

As in death caused by drive-by fruit-shooting?

Drive-by saausage-rolled-over?

Oh the irony of you all making me laugh about bloody Greggs on this thread. I was such a fool. grin

i never understoof why fruit shoots were so bad,

its the sugar i presume and asparteme - i don't know what asparteme does - does it give you cancer or something?

and it it does why is it allowed in fruit shoots.

shootfromthehip Tue 28-Oct-08 12:45:09

I have always found froot shoots to be quite aggressive characters. I think that is why people don't like them. Their manners are poor too. Bad influences the lot of them.

Lotster Tue 28-Oct-08 12:52:30

The idea of fruit with shooters appalls me.
