No, we're missing out.

I'd rather have a Tunnock's teacake. If I drop the teacake I'm not going to get my head blown off just lose my head in a massive meltdown.

If I had a gun and could go outside for more than just exercise I could get me some teacakes tho - but no doubt I'd stumble and blow my head off.

Don't lie mmm, if you dropped the teacake, you'd still eat it. Desperate times, desperate measures and all that.

 

I would rather have 5000 teacakes than a gun. Any burglar comes, I can just offer them a box of teacakes.

I wouldn't ever drop a tea cake. I would unwrap it in my chair as walking with it is far too risky.

I'm not offering a burglar anything, it's not a give-away!

That whole money or your life thing bugs me. Surely if you opt for giving your life he would take the money after killing you, I can't see Mr Bandito wandering off after killing his victim and leaving the money behind.

I think the thing to do with intruders is give them everything, don't piss them off. The only thing you should stop them doing is taking you anywhere because they're probably going to kill you then, so you might as well be killed in your own home so that people know what happened to you and hopefully there'll be DNA evidence left on you.

 

Of course if you're being pulled into a car or whatever you yell "DON'T YOU DARE TAKE ME TO A SECONDARY LOCATION!!" over and over again.

 

This is a very happy talk.

Also, I looked up Tunnocks teacakes and they look absolutely delicious. beatlemaniacs_02_gif

The fact that Tunnocks teacakes aren't available in the USA makes me really upset paul-mccartney 

And yeah guns are really useful for self-defense (though when I go to college in the city I'm just going to opt for mace on a key chain instead of a gun. I also wouldn't be able to legally own one in my state until I'm 21 so.....), but guns aren't chocolate covered and delicious edible delights so......

This conversation has to be some of the best advertising for Tunnock's they've ever had.

 

Now here's the question for the gun-nuts. Would you rather all Tunnock's teacakes be turned into guns or all guns turned into Tunnock's teacakes?

Either way sounds pretty dangerous, tbh. I think teacakes to guns would be worse as you'd suddenly have a bunch of people who don't know how to properly handle guns finding guns instead of teacakes in their cupboards.

 I'd rather have all guns turned to teacakes, ngl. However, would different sized guns turn into different sized teacakes? a-hard-days-night-john-3

All teacakes turned into guns would probably result in small explosions within our cupboards, since I doubt you could fit six rifles into a box six inches long a-hard-days-night-john-6

Pretty pleased with this result, considering I reluctantly voted for him over RLB despite aligning more with her politically. I think Keir is the best of a flawed field of candidates. He'll definitely receive criticism for his handling of the Worboys issue and his Brexit policy as Shadow Brexit Secretary, but I think overall he's capable of restoring the party to an electorally viable status whilst keeping it the vehicle for progressive social justice that this country needs. I also voted for Rayner, so I'm pretty pleased with her victory as well. As much as it would have been nice to have a female leader, I don't think RLB was right for the job so for now I'll settle for a deputy. 

Congrats, Keir. Now it's time to pick a shadow cabinet that unites the party, and get on with leading.

¡No pasarán!
