to dunk or not to dunk, that is the question

I'm sitting here with a cup of tea and a plate of Oreos. Now, on the side of the packet I was given an eating instruction to dunk.

This made me think back to a time, early 90s, when my then band was sat in the living room of my drummer's house. He made us a cup of tea (woah, how rawk'n'rowal) and offered some chocolate biscuits (chocolate biscuit addiction one day can lead to a heroin habit the next in the life of a potential rawk god).

Anyhooo, his face turned extremeley pale (that's saying something for a pasty-faced Scotsman) as my chocolate biscuit hit my tea.

"Oh man, that's disgusting!"

"What?" replied I

"Dunking your chocolate biscuit in tea!"


Well, this has truly scarred me...seriously. I am a closet dunker these days.

So, the question is - what's the viewpoint on dunking chocolate biscuits into hot tea? Is it a very plebian thing to do?

I dunk chocolate biscuits in coffee, which I guess is no better (or worse). So I'll say it's okay.

Who's Bono?



(I just chose that option because, really, I'm not that big of a tea drinker and if I was I wouldn't dunk anything in it anyway.)

there seems to be a lot of "i thought he said" going on here. No wonder wires get crossed so frequently in FYM.

the words are

"dunk"

&

"plebian"



in fact, really, this was actually a whole big test to see if people truly read and understand things fully. it has nothing at all to do with chocolate biscuits being fed to drunk Plebans.


you all failed miserably, including me. I am off now to dunk myself in a candle lit bath of acid.

oreos in tea is just wrong

Does this mean I don't get a chocolate biscuit?

Same here

I used to dunk but now we don't buy biscuits but if we did I'd probably still do it.

lol, never

we have a diabetic in the house so when she was diagnosed we just started a really healthy lifestyle, we used to buy the odd packet of biscuits before that but it was never often

if you came to visit we would buy you some. visitors always get biscuits.
