Angel di maria delight


MANCHESTER United’s record signing Angel Di Maria scored against QPR, so proving that £200m can buy a club out of a trouble.

As the ball hit the net. Sky Sport’s Martin Tyler oozed:

“We’ve seen some Angel delight here today.”

Angel delight. We’ll try to keep track of the number of times that pun is used.  The question “how do you solve a problem like Di Maria?” will also be looked out for.

Coral, the bookmakers on the Manchester United sweetie:

Angel Delight is

When you die and go to heaven, you might wonder what culinary delights await you in that celestial paradise. Despite its name, we can be fairly certain that Angel Delight is unlikely to be among them. This British packet-mix mousse dessert has never been the most fashionable of brands, and these days it has been largely consigned to the scrapheap of nostalgic 1970s fare, along with the likes of Cadbury’s Smash, Top Deck Lager and Lime, and the Fray Bentos Steak and Kidney Pie…

Study the ingredients of this magic potion and you will find it is made of some very unnatural things: modified starch, hydrogenated vegetable oil, Propylene Glycol Monostearate and Sodium Pyrophosphate to name but a few. It was plainly cooked up by some mad scientist, and this particular one was descended from the pioneer of powdered desserts, Alfred Bird.
