It is rumoured that the Limeys'...ooops...that's not nice, so fugaddabout it...OK, the Brits...nahh, that's not right either...So lets try English "blokes and birds", OK???

Are so enamoured of the Swedish peoples that they think Swedes are the best people to have fun with...when...get this...are you ready?...When...they have their clothes off!!!

Due to this insatiably lecherous, lewd and lascivious craving they migrate as lemmings to Sweden in such numbers that the sun is blocked by air traffic, the sea level has risen due to the thousands of passenger ships and Northern European commerce has slowed to a crawl...

Homesickness and the feeling of loss when the Motherland is so far away leads them to need, passionately the epicurean delicacies they crave, but have left behind...

In response and also to show English solidarity, nationalism, and stick togetherness, English manufacturers have sent tons of these delicacies to Sweden in such numbers and amounts that the shops/stores in the Motherland have bare shelves!!!

I have heard that when dipped in a batter made of Bass Ale and self rising flour...YES "self rising"...not the other kind!!!...Then deep fried...Eating them away from home is better than being there!!!

So where in Norrland can I buy Digestive Biscuits???

GH - you disappoint me by the vagueness of your request.

I fear that it will be necessary for you to clarify - in detail - the type of Digestive biscuit you require my good sir.

For example:-
Do you require British, Swedish, Dutch, or German digestive biscuits,?
With or without full corn?
Milk or plain chocolate?
On one or both sides?
Paper wrapped or in tins?

Almost all varieties are, to the best of my knowledge, freely available within the Three Crown Kingdom.

Yer pays yer money an' yer takes yer pick.

Or is it the same for you as for a Swede - wanting a beer - En Stor Stark. I.e. simply any old 'digestive biscuit'.

In some supermarkets you can now also get the good old Ginger Nuts smile.gif from McVities, they call them Engelska Pepparkakor.

Something tells me that GH is - or has - moved to Norway and joined the well-known breed (bread) up there known as Trolls.
Wonder if he has grown a beard - long and grey - to suit the role?
