"Wading neck deep in a swamp, your revolver is neither use nor ornament until you have had time to clean it" Mary H. Kingsley (1897)

Puzzling Appetites



According to the advertising blurb:

“The new Cadbury Celebrations Rich Dry Fruit Collection is a tribute to the making of this fine chocolate gift. 
Its exotic ingredients are chosen with great love and care. 
When such a gift is given with love, the love comes back to the giver and everyone else responsible for making this chocolate.”


For my own part, I cannot help puzzling over the exact relationship between that man of mature years and the much younger recipient of his rich dry fruit collection.
