Exorbitant beans

Jamie Oliver's in trouble for charging £7 for a dish of baked beans on toast, which used to be served at his restaurant in London, Fifteen. OK, so it was ciabatta bread, and olive oil, parmesan and rocket were mixed in with the baked beans, but £7? £7?? Just goes to show you Londoners really will pay anything...if you tried that in Newcastle you'd get laughed out of town.

In other news, not content with the Virgin Mary's picture on a toasted cheese sandwich, a bar manager in Switzerland is trying to convince people that he's got an oyster shell with Jesus' face on it. Whatever next? Answers on a postcard, please.

Ooh, and before I forget, here's 100 things we didn't know this time last year. Aside from a group of rhinos being called a "crash", I particularly like the fact that herrings "break wind to communicate and keep the school together".

Tut tut, that Jamie Oliver. I didn't even know you could order baked beans in a restaurant. Its like that bit on GW when Martin has ordered egg and soldiers!

What a strange list. I particularly like this one:

'86. You can see the back of your own head in some parts of the universe as time and light are so curved. The universe is neither flat, nor football shaped - it looks like a flat-sided trumpet, German physicists believe.'

I'm trying to imagine a flat-sided trumpet.

Ah yes, I'd forgotten about that Martin bit! And when Caroline has to shout "milk" at him, which of course the waiter then thinks is an order...

Must go and watch episode 6 again. Martin dancing is one of my all time favourite sequences!
