Thread title and link defeated by over-zealous auto-censoring.  🙄

 

It's on the BBC website.

Indeed. So how come you can say [-Censored-] and I can't?

Nope it is blocked for me.

There is one town I'd better not mention, as it has a naughty word at the start of it.

Seems a right silly thing to censor the name of a type of bird, assuming Bluetit isn't also censored, despite being a grammatical aberration...

@RobPN Ah, thanks for the info. So that's how one avoids the swear filter. I may have to report you.  😂

 

Meanwhile, the article can be found on the BBC News site - enter "blue itt (anag)" into the search box.

Just type Cyanistes caeruleus; it just rolls off the tongue, doesn't it?

But what's with sherbet lemons?

I bought a packet supposed to be a taste of old style sweets but where was the sherbet centre. It was just solid with sherbetty specks throughout. Nothing like a proper sherbet lemon.

I don't know how old you are @billnotben, but our perception of taste changes as we get older.  Things I used to find tasty no longer are, and the things my grandfather used to eat, and I didn't like, are now very nice.

That's so true but what is it with sherbet?

I'd love a sherbet fountain with the licorice straw and real sherbet lemons that, if you had a mind to, you could crack open and tip the sherbet centre out.

They were the kids equivalent of a chocolate liqueur.
