While watching the TV last night Barbie and I were having a cup of tea and we brought out a box of Peek Freans Assorted Tea Biscuits. As Barbie was eating one of the cookies she developed a look of disgust that one develops when something putrid enters your mouth.
“This cookies says ‘Nice’ on it”, Barbie exclaimed. “Its a lie there nothing nice about this taste”
At this point I was going to bring up that the Nice is actually a reference to the town in France where Peek Freans is from however Barbie cut me off with
“Oh, wait, it might mean Nice (pronounced Niece).” Barbie realised.
“Yeah, it’s named after the town in France. Peek Freans used to have that as their advert that ‘they aren’t nice but Nice (niece)’.”
Barbie looked at me and went “Well, it says nice and it should say shit because that’s what they taste like”
After a few seconds past Barbie looked backed over at me and went “You’re going to write this one aren’t you?”
“Absolutely” I said.
