If you have the misfortune to land on their redirection page something TERRIBLE happens.

Along with the usual apology that you've been directed to a page that no longer exists, they have a pithy messages that states

You found it! We've been looking for that biscuit everywhere ...

And then next to it, next to it

<<sit down and brace yourselves for the horror>>

A picture of a partially eaten


Honestly, seriously? Do you know nothing?

It's a cake! Cake. Not biscuit. It's a cake. angry

How could you?

I am clearly so NBU it hurts. I DEMAND a picture of a Jammy Dodger with haste.

I got a bourbon.

First time I got that page it was a Jaffa cake though.

HoneyDragon Sun 21-Apr-13 19:05:51

They are gas lighting us with their many biscuits. confused

Don't you mean an apostrophe, Pan?

No need to thank me.

Pan Sun 21-Apr-13 19:06:50

Ha! blush

BrittaPie Sun 21-Apr-13 19:07:00

They rotate biscuits.

Didn't the Pringles people try to argue that they were not a potato based snack ie not a crisp or something for tax reasons?

SconeInSixtySeconds Sun 21-Apr-13 19:07:17

Yay! Jammie dodger that time!

HoneyDragon Sun 21-Apr-13 19:07:39

Pan. As I have an unused comma I can always stick it somewhere else?

I hadn't noticed that and now it's really going to annoy me

TheHerringScreams Sun 21-Apr-13 19:08:18

I got jammy dodgers hmm

usualsuspect Sun 21-Apr-13 19:09:02

They have no right to call themselves cakes.

RustyBear Sun 21-Apr-13 19:10:14

MNHQ seem to have an awful lot of half-eaten biscuits lying around.

They'll be getting mice next....

HoneyDragon Sun 21-Apr-13 19:10:46

True Usual. Mingy orange bastards.

I now have about 12 tabs open trying to establish the biscuit appearance pattern.

ChaosTrulyReigns Sun 21-Apr-13 19:14:20

Don't give usual a capital.

She doesn't desetve one.


There, there, there HonetDragon. Calm down dear, it's only a biscuit.

Biscuits. Biscuits. Biscuits.

Has anyone ever actually let a Jaffa cake go off in order to test the cake/biscuit categorisation? If so YABVU and are a bastard of the highest order. I could've had that Jaffa cake.

HorribleHaircut Sun 21-Apr-13 19:20:11

Who the hell puts down a biscuit?! Weirdies.

And surely it should be pom bears? or a slice of quiche....?

If you get the 404 page at RTE you get a picture of Shergar.

superbagpuss Sun 21-Apr-13 19:22:21

Lunatic. There were pictures of the horse before it went missing grin

IamtheZombie Sun 21-Apr-13 19:36:08

Zombie to lecture on VAT. She always used the Jaffa Cake tale in her lecture. It's more than just cakes go hard / biscuits go soft...
