Just when you thought it was still safe to make infantile jokes about traditional puddings, Flintshire Council goes completely barking mad.
Doh! or rather, dough! tsk ...

Yeah, but imagine working in the canteen and hearing the same inane remarks day after day after..........How long would it be before you punched someone?
They can change the name on the menu - but I doubt if the jokes will stop - this is likely to make matters worse.
A bit like putting "Wet paint - do not touch" on a park bench..... how many people just have to touch it?
If the staff are that touchy - make another pudding. I can recommend the award winning "Amazing, Impossible Pie" - I wonder what they would call that?
Isn't "Richard" rhyming slang for...er...?? :-/ snigger snigger
ttsssshhhhhh, he he
I would have thought renaming it "Sultana Sponge" on the menu as reported in the link could easily imply to some that it is made from the wives of Sultans.
Where does the lunacy stop?
I'm only raisin' a point here on the currant situation concerning sultanas.
Interesting article if you deconstruct it a little. it appears to criticise the council:
Quote: The new name for the dessert, with another alternative Sultana Sponge, has appeared on the menu at Flintshire Council headquarters in Mold.
but in fact the change appears to have been made by "canteen staff" which could have been anybody from the director of catering to Doris who writes the chalkboard menu.
nevertheless, it is presented as another "political correctness gone mad" issue.
More spin than content.
Next in line 'Aniseed Balls' ?
Would they feel embarrassed to serve "Millionaires Shortbread" I wonder or would they re-name that as well?
I bet they would sell lots of "Star Gazy Pie" - they would feel quite at home with that one
"Horn of Plenty" probably wouldn't make the menu either
And don't even mention chicken breasts. Or chicken thighs. Or ox tongue. And as for sweet and sour prawn balls, they'll get Doris throwing kitchen implements about.
It's a minefield.
Anyone for a jam tart? Oh, wait ...!

Old School Tart!

Oh sorry, thought you were calling me.
Would "Coq Au Van" take Doris back to a lustful, teenage Memory Lane perhaps?
