Apparently Spotted Dick is something common in the UK. The spotted part of the name comes from the use of raisins. The dick portion of the name seems to be a mystery with different conflicting stories of how it came to rise. No pun intended. ::giggle::
I promise I'm not making fun of anyone or anything. In fact, I thought long and hard about whether or not to post this (I crack myself up!). This is just another example of my warped sense of humor.
I was walking through the grocery store with my son when he suddenly stopped and said "That couldn't have said what I thought it said."
We had to backtrack to the previous aisle to see what it was that he saw. When I saw it too I almost hit the floor laughing. I might as well have been back in 8th grade with the way I was snickering and carrying on. I'm sorry, but I had never heard of it before. It was just a bit shocking, not to mention very funny!
All I could think was that it sounds like something that should probably be treated by a doctor - and really, don't they have a vaccine to prevent that? Oh my, I am going to be able to play some great practical jokes with this! Yes, I bought it, the photo is from my pantry. Yes, I'm still giggling.
