BRIE de MERSEY

Hi folks, Paul Hollywood here;

I love life and what it's done for me. 

I've just made a discovery.

I used to only eat cheddar

until I chanced on Brie de Mersey,

French by name English by nature. 

Bloody crackin' it is -

if ever there was a taste of the north

this has got it in buckets. 

 

It's in Tescos as we speak, 

I love it to bloody death.

It's safe on the gut,

safe to smell - with

minimal risk of bad breath. 

 

I thought i'd pass this on

for all you cheesaholics.

Oh! someone's just told me

it's called BRIE DE MEAUX

and i've been talking bollocks.

Sorry Suki, just trawling on past poems - there is such a conception of Liverpool being the source of all humour and street wisdom that it is an easy target I suppose. Thanks for taking the long view.

And I'm from Merseyside. That whole thing of scouse wit, especially celebrity scouse wit does my head in. I won't name the guilty. Anyway Ray, you capture it perfectly.

Ta-raa!

Hey thanks everybody! Gratifying that you read my little poem and also hopefully watch me looking bloody sexy and up for it on the telly. (joking obviously).

Good stuff Cynthia, thanks for enjoying.

Works well, Col - shaken and stirred!

You're a wise man Tony. I couldn't tempt with to the Hairy Bikers then?

Hilarious, David. You've got the idea!

Love to all. Ray

If you wouldn't buy a car from that man, my advice is don't buy his cheese (in more ways than one)

Made me laugh, Ray, and I never watch cookery programmes. Tony
