    I should point out that Black Pudding is never seen south of Manchester... Down south it is officially classified as Hazardous Waste and comes under the control of the Atomic Energy Commission. Should there be a report of a Black Pudding on the loose in London, crack teams of exterminators are sent out from Whitehall to neutralize the threat with extreme prejudice... Entire streets have been blown up in order to isolate and destroy the Puddings before they breed and multiply. Difficult to identify, sadly, a Bratwurst visiting London was recently misidentified as a Black Pudding and shot by the Metropolitan Police in a "friendly fryer" incident.

    Cheers, Bob.

    Bob,
    Not a pretty picture, but I would still classify black pudding as true gourmet fare. Being raised in Philadelphia I'm no stranger to haute cuisine. Cheesesteaks,hoagies,tastykakes and scrapple all washed down with Franks Black Cherry Wishniak. Philly gourmet food. Scrapple is the ground up cadavers of various barnyard animals. They put other things in it ( I'm convinced one ingredient is hair) form it into cakes and then you fry it up at breakfast. Two schools of thought here. The conservatives put maple syrup on it. The liberals opt for ketchup. I'm a ketchup man myself.
    cheers back,
    Jack

    Indeed, many feel that this persecution of the humble Black Pudding is excessive and that it should be allowed to roam free in the wild as it's ancestors once did.

    To this end, pairs of Puddings have been re-introduced into the wild under controlled conditions in wilderness areas. It is hoped that the recent ban on hunting Puddings with hounds will allow them to breed sufficiently to create sustainable communities.

    Many farmers however are opposed to this, fearing for their livelihood (a fully grown Buck pudding can easily bring down even a quite large and well developed lettuce) and are expected to petition for the right to shoot any Black Puddings found to be molesting Wellingtons or other at-risk footwear.

    One can only hope that good sense will prevail.

    Cheers, Bob.

    bob,
    you've never been to the black country then? Chitlins, grey peas, black pudding, faggots* - the staple diet in Bilston.

    * to our Colonial friends, faggots are minced up pigs liver and any other bits lying round, wrapped in the lining of a pigs stomach.
    A faggot is also a bundle of twigs and sticks used as kindling for a fire. Hence the slang term 'fag' for a cigarette.

    I certainly won't - when I spent two weeks on an oil rig with Scottish catering it was sheer delight finally getting a meal that wasn't deep fried!
