Weapons of Mass Dessertion

The other day Instapundit thought he was being funny:

T'S EASIER TO GET SPOTTED DICK THAN YOU THINK, even in America. Consider yourself warned!

Oh, like who didn't know that spotted dick was a British dish, and not an embarrassing medical condition (not that there's much difference -- ba dum dump!).

Here's a quiz: which of these is NOT a type of British food?:

  • Bubble and Squeak
  • Toad in the hole
  • Cock-a-leekie
  • Hundreds and Thousands
  • Pasties

Give up? Good. Because they all are. Ha ha!

But this part is disturbing: you go[1] to the Amazon page that Glenn linked (for the six pack of spotted dick), and you get "Customers Who Viewed This Item Also Viewed..."


  • Uranium Ore. 1 used & new from $22.95. Not eligible for Amazon Prime. Sorry.

Perhaps the uranium ore is used to treat the spotted dick.

Read the reviews. Here's a sample:

First, I'm not sure what the abundance of U-238 is in this sample. In any case, if you want this for "experimenting," note that this is NOT the U-235 that you probably should be looking for...

Did Saddam Hussein know about this?

[1]Rather, if you went yesterday you could see this. Apparently Glenn has craftily arranged to obscure the sinister uranium-spotted dick connection.

Right now, uranium-viewers are exhibiting a positively creepy penchant for lacy underthings. Mahmoud, you scamp!
