You forgot an item: "Cheese stolen from a New Zealand supermarket".

What the frell does the term 'perfectly cooked' mean? Still bleeding? Rare? medium-rare? well done? charred to a crisp???

I find it hard to bother to reply to this. What is there to say? I'm surprised Ben's digestive system can cope with this, and FOUR meals a day? Even I draw the line at three. And absinthe for lunch? Coffee for dinner? How can you have exclusive bottles of booze every night?!

And since BC's typical day involves "sleeping off hangovers, exposing alien cults, being chased by Nazis, having sex with unwilling partners" how does he get the time for this food regime which would make Shockeye of the Quancing Grig describe as "excessive"?

Absinthe OR orange juice?

OK, because those two drinks are rather similar, aren't they?...

One is an evil green alcoholic brew, the other is a healthy drink.

At least they're not the choices of drink for breakfast...

As I say, he sleeps through breakfast because of the previous night's overdose of absinthe and hallucinagenic mints.

How stupid is the blog title? "A Typical Ben Chatham DAILY Diet". So we're meant to believe the Smoothe Scumbag eats all this rich, expensive food every day?

He'd get ruddy bored of it, plus he'd be broke after two days, anyway. In the Lavatorial Chathamverse, Ben is so poor he's had to give up most of these luxuries & he now survives on crackers & (stolen?) cheese.

"Eddie, what exactly is caviarrrrrrr?"

"It's fish poo, your dukeness."

Youth of Australia said...

Ah, "Digger", what better metaphor for Chathamhood is there?

"What's for supper, Kyle?"

"Peacock's vomit, O Smoothe One."

"We Chathams have been in-breeding since the Vikings, you know..."

"Do you mind, I'm a respectable man!"

"She was crap in bed anyway, Ben."

"She looked good on my arm, though..."

Only three meals? All discerning individuals of character eat all the following meals;

Breakfast
Brunch
Elevenses
Twelveses
Lunch
Afternoon Tea
Dinner
Supper
St Michaels Meal
Midnight feast
2AM snack

You know nothing, Spara!

And if the 1965 Chataux De Cromaix red is SO exclusive, how can he drink it every day?

That's what I said.

He drinks 10mil from a medicine cup.

Or the 1965 Chateaux De Cromaix is the greatest slut of the wine world and Ben lives in denial.

Or he's so full of denial he just thinks it's 1965 Chataux De Cromaix, and is actually second-rate Peruvian read he got from the bottle-o for fivepence. I think that's my favourite theory.

What's the betting that Ben's daily menu is Spara's culinary version of a wank fantasy, & in real-life Mr. G the History teacher is a Coco Pops & sausage sandwich kind of man?

Ketchup or brown sauce, Spara?...
