Pot Lobby®

Started by: dostaf (inactive)

Will it catch on?

I don't mean a poor excuse for a vestibule, but a handy snack for Leythers.

I shall start researching how to dehydrate lobbies (although they call it 'lobby'). Maybe even freeze dry the stuff.

Just add boiling water and you're sorted.

Not forgetting a little sachet of red cabbidge

Shut up Mache, or I'll seek a banning order.

Eront, fair point.

Maybe an optional flask of hot water could be the solution.

I'll end up making more money selling flasks.

Somebody did something similar in real life.

The containers were more saught after than the product. Can't remember who.

Similarly chewing gum. One mon started giving it away as a sales gift, ended up seeling the gum instead and building an empiere.

I was nearly right:

1891 William Wrigley Jr founded Wrigley Chewing Gum. Existing companies offered similar products that were much more popular, than gums from Wrigley’s. One day in 1892, Mr. Wrigley got the idea of offering two packages of chewing gum with each can of baking powder. This offer was a huge success! His first two brands were Lotta and Vassar. Juicy Fruit gum came next in 1893, and Wrigley's Spearmint was introduced later that same year.

Mine will have the red cabbidge sachet. Which is different than the army's.

I don't want dragging off by the red caps.

Remember on darts match nights when the host pub would put on a bar spread of strong Lancashire cheese butties with sliced onions in bowls of vinegar, and sometimes to be different some pubs would put out a bowl of pickled red cabbage too, cheese and pickle butties always tasted better with a glass or two of ale.

What happened to that last film you were going to make? Did none of them want to sit on your casting couch?

I've not made Lobby for ages. It's nice with Pickled Beetroot too and a thick crust of freshly made bread and best butter.

Piccy. Be careful.

I had to cover my back on here and refer to them/it as 'Lobby'.

this appeases the Leythers and saves them writing nasty letters about me to whoever will read them about 'discriomination'.

They're a funny lot in Leigh.

Dostaf - Dustaf same poster. Me.

I changed it from Dostaf to Dustaf for a while. Nothing underhand, same avatar, no attemt at deception.

Lobby is what people from Leigh call lobbies.

It is the subject of many light-hearted arguments with Peawapp. Peawapp being a poster from Leigh.
