You didn't earn a lot in the New Zealand Army in the 1950s and 60s even as a Senior NCO and it was roast lamb or beef on Sundays and leftovers during the week until it ran out and then casseroles, liver, kidneys, oxtail or tripe.
If you want to vote in the state elections in North Rhein-Westfalia and you're visually impaired, you can request free assistance from the BSVNRW. Which is the Organisation for the Blind and Partially Sighted.
Except it's not free.
In a telecoms market where free domestic calls have become the norm, these idiots have the BALLS to provide a premium number for folks who are probably economically marginalised as well as having been dealt the cards of life from a crooked deck.
And I BET that they'll get shunted through a MAZE of a menu to keep the cash register going "kaCHING"
It's the Kentucky Fried Chicken's "Double Down" sandwich.
2 slices each of plastic cheese and bacon between 2 crumbed and deep fried chicken breasts
Not forgetting the dollop of "The Colonel's Secret Sauce", of course.
Needless to say, it doesn't look QUITE this vile in the adverts once the food stylists are finished with it, but there's no getting away from the fact that it's 25% of my recommended calorific intake and with more salt than I should probably eat in a week.
I'd do it like this:
1 chicken breast, sliced horizontally and then flattened.
Dip in a beaten egg and then dredge in fresh breadcrumbs you've made from wholemeal bread.
Fry in olive oil.
In the meantime:
Grill some pancetta and drain on kitchen towels, thinly slice some buffalo mozarella and toss some baby salad greens in a vinaigrette made of olive oil and aceto balsamico.
Assemble as a sandwich with a good dusting of freshly ground pepper.
You don't get the large fries and the bucket of Coke, but then again, it doesn't cost $9.....
Europe is in a state of uncertainty right now, so Poland’s sorrow adds to the stresses on the continent. A unified currency is a new experiment in the world, and we don’t know how it will work out. The Euro zone, which is those nations that use the euro, agreed to a €30 billion bailout of Greece last week. Poland is not on the euro yet, so it is not participating in the bailout. The plane crash and the Greek crash may delay Poland’s currency conversion, but if the euro is still around in a few years, then Poland will be on it.
I have absolutely NO idea which target audience she's aiming at.
I also have NO idea what she's trying to say.
I'll tell you what, though - I'll definitely have some of whatever it is she's smoking.....
