Bon-bon Usage

Christmas Crackers

 

Christmas Cracker JokesWill and Guy Suspect British Law is Crackers.  The 1875 Explosives Act, currently in force in the UK, apparently considers Christmas crackers to be covered by this archaic law.  This means that an 'explosive' cracker cannot be sold to minors.

This law was shown up to be so stupid when 22 year old student, Heather Walsh, attempted to buy a box of 10, for Christmas Day in her local Marks and Spencer's in York, England. Asked if she was over 16 years old Miss Walsh, who has an University degree was told the 'crackers were classed as explosives', Will and Guy have learned. She was told by staff that they were 'protecting me by not selling me them and they suggested that if I was left alone with the crackers I couldn't be trusted and might blow myself up.'

You couldn't make it up, and we think that this law is definitely CRACKERS.

More Christmas Crackers

It is claimed that Tom Smith, a baker of wedding cakes from London, invented the Christmas cracker probably in the 1840's. On a visit to Paris he saw some sugar almonds [bon-bons] wrapped in twisted paper. On his return to England Tom designed a cracker shape; also inspired by the sound of logs crackling in a fire, and founded a cracker manufacturers in 1847, which still exists today - possibly the largest manufacturer in the world.

Christmas Humour - Disaster At the Restaurant

Passing the Mayfair Chinese Restaurant on the corner of Castle Road (the premises where Peter Sellers was born) today 3rd January, on my way back from seeing Sheridan, I saw that there was a handwritten notice on the glass in the door. It read and looked like this:

CLOSED

KITCHEN ON FIRE

UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

Don't know how long the notice had been there, but I did not see any smoke, fire engines or road closures!  It must have ruined their Christmas and New Year trade!
