Well advised!

Biplane~ Yes indeed. Personally, I'd
sooner watch Mr Bradbury's advert for prunes.

There's a California Prune Board?!?

Mog the Dog here.

Did I say Prune Board? No, there's no California Prune Board. (Never has been, never will be...)

It's the California Dried Plum Board:

Whoever started this topic should be stoned and hung out to dry. Prunes were the staple diet of our public school system, along with cremated porridge, burnt scrambled eggs and other unmentionables ...

If you refer to groon's first posting he was most definitely stoned.

Is that "free-stoned"?
Mrs. Braling has less than fond memories of school lunches. To this day she can't bear the thought of eating swede!

Indeed, everything seems to turn to concrete and asphalt in the absence of prune consumption.

Speaking of Prunes, here is a Trivia Question: Does anyone know what the base taste of Dr. Pepper soda is?

I believe that Dr Pepper having a prune taste as a base is an urban myth, is it not?
