What the fuck is 'vintage' coffee?

DontBuyANewMumCashmere Thu 23-Feb-17 10:10:31

I agree. There is so much wankery about. Drinking out of jam jars and eating off slates included.

I was in John Lewis yesterday and I was nearly swayed by a £27 insulated back to carry a packed lunch in - uber-expensive wankery!

DonkeyOaty Thu 23-Feb-17 10:11:12

Mellow Birds powder, Niffler. Mmmm yum. (NOT)

ObiWankyKnobby Thu 23-Feb-17 10:11:31

Bag. £27 cheap for an insulated back!

Let's serve your food on a chopping board for you - wanky

Babycchinos- wanky

Yuk, Donkey

'Hand cut'
'Pan fried'
Village hen's egg
Food descriptions containing EVERY SINGLE INGREDIENT in the dish:

'Hand cut, artisan 27-seed granary loaf smeared with farm-churned, slightly salted normandy butter, layered with lightly-crushed free range organic farm eggs, laid in straw-lined nestboxes by hand-reared black leghorn hens, enrobed with organic virgin olive oil mayonnaise, sprinkled with organic, hand-harvested cress.'

It's a chuffin egg & cress sandwich!!

Those bloody stupid jars with handles & lids with holes, for milkshakes. Complete with a non-bendy straw so kids have to hold them in their laps instead of on the table... recipe for disaster IMHO.

Chips served in little wire baskets , hugely wanky

PerryCoxHair Thu 23-Feb-17 10:18:22

"sourcing a trouser" = wanky. You are shopping for a pair of trousers ffs!
I hate the term sourcing

OnHold Thu 23-Feb-17 10:20:06

A red lip =wanky

PerryCoxHair Thu 23-Feb-17 10:21:23

Just the one red lip OnHold? grin

BathshebaDarkstone Thu 23-Feb-17 10:21:32

Babyccinos may be wanky, but DC love them, although DD wanted to know why they couldn't have decaffeinated coffee in them! grin

WindwardCircle Thu 23-Feb-17 10:22:01

Shop the edit- I don't even know what that means but it's wanky.

OnHold Thu 23-Feb-17 10:22:15

Yes grin Like a trouser.

LaContessaDiPlump Thu 23-Feb-17 10:23:50

I ordered DS2 (4yo) a decaf coffee when we were in Ostend Bathsheba - the waiter visibly Judged, but why on earth should he not be allowed it? It's decaf after all!

I do always want to ask him if he would like a tiny cigarette to go with it though grin

PerryCoxHair Thu 23-Feb-17 10:24:05

I would love to see what someone looks like with a red lip and a trouser grin

Shop the edit I have never heard that! Wtf does it even mean?

TheWinterOfOurDiscountTents Thu 23-Feb-17 10:24:13

Calling chicken nuggets Chicken Gougons = wanky

Sorry but nope. Not wanky. Goujons and nuggets aren't the same, and the latter has been around as a term, like, forever. Goujons predate nuggets!

squishysquirmy Thu 23-Feb-17 10:24:15

It's well known that the more adjectives used, the more expensive the food.
Cheese and onion crisps = cheap.
Artisan hand cut triple cooked west country mature cheddar and slow roasted balsamic baby onion chutney crisps = v.v. expensive.
