What the hell, first

13 year old Lewis looks absolutely thrilled with his new title. This is the sort of things people should be asked about before they're allowed to have children.

National Faggot Week...

no...must...not...

It's nce to see that they've published a "Good Faggot Guide" because really, who wants to read about evil faggots?

When this family does their goodwill tour of North America. I'll be first in line to say "Howdy, Doody's".

ps: Brought to you by Mr. Brain? Good Faggots Guide?

Mr. Brain's Faggots?

Mr. Brain's Faggots?

Isn't there a Zagat's Guide to Faggots?

I thought fags were cigarette butts, so is a faggot the whole smoke?

The Doody family hope to raise profile of faggots

I like it when headlines work even when you switch around the order of words.

I always thought a faggot was a bundle of sticks. Never heard of it as a food. Anyone know what it actually is? Besides something to eat with mushy peas?

"The great British faggot is full of flavour and a great belly warmer at this time of year."

Can you confirm this, djtonyb?

Link (har) to another great headline -
"What's in the great British banger?"?
( located in upper-right corner of original article )

I'm not sure what's more disturbing...the faggots or the side story "What's in the great British banger?"

"The great British faggot is full of flavour and a great belly warmer at this time of year."

Very true. His name is Nick. We met at a nightclub in London.

Key Quote:

"The great British faggot is full of flavour and a great belly warmer at this time of year."

Fun Faggot Facts:
* Faggots were called "savoury ducks" in the Middle Ages.
* Faggots were named after the Latin word for bundle.
* Faggots were originally made with pig's liver and offal.
* Faggots are now made from pork liver and pork.

But I don't LIKE faggots!

Here's more about faggots.

Why did my family never tell me the facts of life about them?

So a faggot is a bundle of liver? Nice. Might prefer the sticks myself. Never could cotton up to organ meat.

great w/spam.

Mmmm, faggots and mushy peas.

My dad went to the faggot factory in Britain when he was a kid - never ate another one! Apparantly they weren't too discriminating on what went into the meat hopper....

Yum. Lunch, anyone?

"The great British faggot is full of flavour and a great belly warmer at this time of year."
Whereas the great American faggot is more ripe in the fall.

During the age of exploration and colonialism, the British Empire conquered the world.
I believe they were searching for a decent meal.

Higgy, your post is an embarrassment of riches.

Um, this article is from January 2003.

Mmmm, shredded suet ...

Naah, it's too easy.

Is it anything like black pudding?

"but all too often the faggot is left off that list,"

aint it the truth...?

That article is one of the funniest I've read here! Too bad the writer didn't include Doody in the headline! But I'm sure some of you could make up something funny.

Criminy! How can I bounce up and down with outrage about homophobia when the blog story is about "faggots" ... and "faggots" is a food item?!

Aw, jeez!

"The family, including Lewis, 13, and Grace, 7, eat faggots twice a week, with mashed potato and mushy peas."

And they say English cuisine is an oxymoron!

hey now, who is from miami? come on, make a list for me...

Best. Article. Ever.

Judi
I am not now, nor have I ever been, from Miami.

For the love of God... they've got two small children and they've draped them in sashes that read "Faggot Fan." Perhaps since the article is so old, child protective services have already intervened.

""The nation knows that the Cornish pasty, Yorkshire pudding, haggis and fish and chips are great British dishes, but all too often the faggot is left off that list," said Janet Doody."

Oh yes, we all know how great haggis is. How unfair, indeed, that the faggot does not get that kind of recognition.

Trystan, if you bounce up and down, can we watch?

;)

judi, I think it's been pretty well established that I am a DC area bloglit.

Judi, djtony & trystan are the only two I know of other than you & Dave. But I'm sure there are more.

How about asking for New Yorkers? Maybe we can organize something when Dave comes here for the other convention next month, although my current plans are to stay as far from Manhattan as possible that week. For Dave I'd make an exception.
