....in protest because they actually want Knick Knacks?

The newletter and text reminder are both spelled Nik Naks, and it has given me the proper rage. Actually they dont want knick knacks at all, they want jumble sale type stuff....clothes, toys, books etc so that has pissed me right off too.

Please do this! Practice your best confused face when they ask you why you’ve donated crisps.

I already have a bit of a reputation as a trouble maker so I might as well :o

Luckily I have known the school secretary for years and I know she will get it!

Go for it! It comes to something when the Head teacher scuttles away when she sees me coming instead of the other way round :o

Is it a request for those foul crisps that looked a bit like stunted Twiglets???? Send some of those in, if they still exist.

I quite like Nik Naks! They do still exist and they are sold in just about all supermarkets plus pound shops, Home Bargains, Farm Foods etc.

Wondering........would it be a step too far to print a label saying Knick Knacks and stick it to the packaging?

It would wouldnt it?

God I love Nik naks. far too good for kids.
Scampi - green packs? Yum. My fave.
Spicy - orange packs. good.
Ribs - purple packs. also yummy.

Do not give school anything. Numpties. And definitely not Nik naks. Far too good for schools.

What shite do they really want?

I now have a craving for a Nik Nak sandwich - spicy Nik Naks on white bread. Mmmm. Unfortunately I have just had my shopping delivered and didn't order any.
