I've never even seen one. I thought they were one of those peculiar things that the English love to eat, like 'mushy peas' and pork pies (eew).
Never even seen a J.C. ?????
Wow - I thought J.C.'s reached every corner of the globe. English colonialism and all that. Hey, are you sure a J.C. is English...?
No, I haven't. You can't get them at the supermarket, but I think you can from specialty 'English' shops. I had an English friend who talked about them a lot, but they didn't sound all that appealing.

Blessed be. What happened to the globalisation of the J.C.
I think I'll write to my friends in high places.

Googling them they look more like a biscuit. Are they soft like a cake or crunchy?

And that reveals the true evil nature of the J.C.
Legally, it's an untaxed cake. Illegally, it's a taxing biscuit.
Either way, you have to taste it to believe it. No matter what it's called.

Hey Harbal,

What floats your boat?

My boat seems to have sunk, Phil, I've had to abandon ship.
Ah too bad. You're polluting the waters.

Are you saying he's Polish?

Why don't they let Polacks swim in the Mediterranean?

They leave a ring.

My 1st mother-in-law used to make fun of this song, that was when it first came out.

Sure he did, he said you were polluting the water. Have someone read you the whole post, don't just read the parts you can.

A virgin in so many ways.
Now? Not so much.

Transcription from podcast:

13:04 “He climbed into his chair and began playing, “Light My Fire.” The current top forty version was performed by José Feliciano, a blind man whose plaintive voice served the lyric much better than Jim Morrison, who sang the song in what I considered to be a bossy and conceited tone of voice. There was José Feliciano, Jim Morrison, and then there was Mr. Mancini, who sang beautifully but sang Light My Fire as if he were a Webelo Scout searching for a match.”

I know, there are a lot of jokes and comments that I wish I'd never heard.
