Spotted Dick Back On The Menu In Sensible Flintshire

ad30971IN Flintshire, the County Council burghers have reversed a decision to rename Spotted Dick as Spotted Richard.

Canteen staff at Flintshire council decreed that due to “immature comments” Spotted Richard would replace Spotted Dick.

Says Colin Everett, council chief executive, aka Colon Ever Ready:

Although the majority have seen the humorous side of the story, the impression given in the media that the council might have been ‘politically correct’ has led to some derision and, sadly, to a number of abusive letters being sent in from across the country.”

Abusive letters? Like a “Y” which looks like women lying on her back, “r”, which resembles a semi-aroused member and the dreaded ‘O”.

Mr Every Ready says Flintshire is a “sensible” and the name change had been ordered as a result of the “childish comments of one regular customer”.

“In full agreement with the catering management Flintshire County Council will observe proper tradition and refer to all dishes by their proper name. Spotted Dick will be back on the menu under its proper and proud name. In future, any customers who act in this childish way will be asked to behave properly or will be refused service. Let common tradition and common sense prevail.”

Mr Armstrong-Braun, who bemoaned the name change says:

“It’s a great victory for Spotted Dick and for everyone who makes it.”

Richard Hardbroom of the Spotted Richard alliance tells Anorak:

“They’re not spots, they’re infected freckles.”

A toad in the hole, when you’re ready, love…
