According to BBC World News Television's newsreader it's the "Australian Royal Navy". :D

Fred,
No, friedly batter has no place in bread, butter or cheese, it falls under fish and chips, or as the Kiwis' say fush and chups, so therefore should be filed under General Fried.
Fred,
When have you known the BBC not to treat us as convicts and colonials? The fact they mangled everything Australian over the years is the reason we have the ABC. The only reason the ABC was started was to break the mindset of poms and to educate them a little. Notice I said a little because you can't educate a pom too much. Reminds me of the days of Bob and Dolly Dyer and how the poms could never beat us at general knowledge. (look it up). Hint try Barry Jones.

Mike,

You finally got their name right, unfortunately it's not their review, it's an International Fleet Review http://www.navy.gov.au/ifr/ but I will give you points for trying. Who says you can't teach old dogs new tricks. :D Now, about how to operate a chain saw when you're old.........

Breaking story:
BBC corrects its mistake and apologises to all Australians: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-24409142
The BBC has publicly apologised to all Australian servicemen for calling their navy the Australian Royal Navy, and not the Royal Australian Navy said Prince Harry at a press conference. :D :D
Prince Harry also said he likes fresh butter and cheese with his homemade bread.

Betty Botta bought some butter;
"But," said she, "this butter's bitter!
If I put it in my batter
It will make my batter bitter.
But a bit of better butter
Will but make my batter better."
Then she bought a bit of butter
Better than the bitter butter,
Made her bitter batter better.
So ´twas better Betty Botta
bought a bit of better butter.

Well after all that and watching "The International Fleet Review" which really should have been called "The Prince Harry Song and Dance Show" but he couldn't help it, so I don't blame him, I'll get back to the subject. After seeing the picture of your bread R.R. I will have to make a point of trying to get down your way next time over to try a slice out, I'll bring the Chedder . I'am sorry none of you guys never got around to sailing around the harbour on my Charter Cat, but as mentioned I sold it recently so I no longer have the expense and worry that it gave me over the last 4 years since Captain Cook Cruises gave it back to me when the latest lease ended after 18yrs . It was out on the harbour yesterday though full of paying passengers so it's life isn't ended just yet. I just love the freedom it gives me, not having it, it was one of the reasons my build has been so slow.

Should be careful saying things like that on a public forum you know ... she's only a 'ickle girl who meant no harm :shock:

For those of us who like to indulge in a glass or two here's a slightly more challenging version:

The Sitter and the Butter and the Better Batter Fritter


My little sister's sitter
Got a cutter from the baker,
And she baked a little fritter
From a pat of bitter butter.
First she bought a butter beater
Just to beat the butter better,
And she beat the bit of butter
With the beater that she bought.

Then she cut the bit of butter
With the little butter cutter,
And she baked the beaten butter
In a beaten butter baker.
But the butter was too bitter
And she couldn't eat the fritter
So she set it by the cutter
And the beater that she bought.

And I guess it must have taught her
Not to use such bitter butter,
For she bought a bit of batter
That was sweeter than the butter.
And she cut the sweeter batter
With the cutter, and she beat her
Sweeter batter with a sweeter batter
Beater that she bought.

Then she baked a batter fritter
That was better than the butter
And she ate the better batter fritter
Just like that.

But while the better batter
Fritter sat inside the sitter -
Why, the little bitter fritter
Made of bitter butter bit her,
Bit my little sister's sitter
Till she simply disappeared.

Then my sister came to meet her
But she couldn't see the sitter -
She just saw the bitter butter
Fritter that had gone and et her;
So she ate the butter fritter
With a teaspoonful of jam.

Now my sister has a bitter
Butter fritter sitting in her,
And a sitter in the bitter
Butter fritter, since it ate her,
And a better batter fritter
Sitting in the silly sitter
In the bitter butter fritter
Sitting in my sister's tum.

Betty from the Betty Medical Journal has an update .... based on genuine scientific/medical research no less:

Saturated fat is not the major issue


Let’s bust the myth of its role in heart disease


Scientists universally accept that trans fats—found in many fast foods, bakery products, and margarines—increase the risk of cardiovascular disease through inflammatory processes.1 But “saturated fat” is another story. The mantra that saturated fat must be removed to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease has dominated dietary advice and guidelines for almost four decades.

Yet scientific evidence shows that this advice has, paradoxically, increased our cardiovascular risks. Furthermore, the government’s obsession with levels of total cholesterol, which has led to the overmedication of millions of people with statins, has diverted our attention from the more egregious risk factor of atherogenic dyslipidaemia.

Saturated fat has been demonised ever since Ancel Keys’s landmark “seven countries” study in 1970.2 This concluded that a correlation existed between the incidence of coronary heart disease and total cholesterol concentrations, which then correlated with the proportion of energy provided by saturated fat. But correlation is not causation. Nevertheless, we were advised to cut fat intake to 30% of total energy and saturated fat to 10%.”3 The aspect of dietary saturated fat that is believed to have the greatest influence on cardiovascular risk is elevated concentrations of low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol. Yet the reduction in LDL cholesterol from reducing saturated fat intake seems to be specific to large, buoyant (type A) LDL particles, when in fact it is the small, dense (type B) particles (responsive …

Dont even look at these studies any more

Eat cheese
don't eat cheese

Eggs are bad for you
Eggs are good for you

High cholesterol food is not good for you
High cholesterol food plays little role in your overall cholesterol levels.

You need to ask an expert maybe ... try the eggman:

Be cool ... don't let such things scare you ... and most certainly don't let frustration get the better of you ... dude



Or if that isn't clear



Always bear in mind "when mother fuckers get scared that's when mother fuckers accidentally get shot"

Which is in no way a threat ... of course 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8)

Made I laff anyway :lol: :lol: :lol:
