Aaaaaah Bisto!

As a kid I always thought the Bisto advert or packets that showed two heads rising out of wisps of steam a bit spooky.

Know what else makes great gravy? It’s a little secret ingredient I like to call meat!

(Just joking, I’m not fond of marmite, but the idea of marmite-based vegetarian gravy does sound intriguing)
My old Mum used to put a very small spoonful of Vegemite in when she was making the gravy with the drippings from the Sunday roast, bloody beautiful. She made the best Yorkshire pud too bless her.

And there's a reason why you don't like Marmite and that's because it's shit.

Now that makes more sense! I looked up marmite gravy online and just got a bunch of meatless recipes!

During WW2 some ladies in England would mix a bit of gravy powder with water and paint it on their legs to make it look as though they were wearing stockings during the war. The effect was further enhanced by painting a stocking line up the back of their legs with eyeliner.

Nice drama, this thread. Entertaining, actually. In the end, what does it really matter.
Shows a bit of what some people here are like.

I cant lie !, but only spread very lightly on the bald bits (oops ) i mean toast.
Hell's bloody bells off to the shops and get some Vegemite. You'll thank me afterwards trust me. Not only a better spread but your social life will improve, you'll get a promotion at work, probably win the lottery, chaps will shout you a pint down at the pub and you'll find that women will want to sleep with you.

Or, at the very least you'll find your hot buttered toast tastes better.

How about this..

When she was pregnant, my wife would eat Marmite spread on banana.....

That said when my mum was pregnant she would eat coal ...but that was back in the olden days when times were tough.

Or do give a shit sometimes and not others. It's a complicated world we live in ;)
I am me. Sometimes I’m a grumpy prick. Probably shouldn’t bother looking at forums when I’m like that but I don’t pretend to be anyone else. I don’t get all neat and tidy just to present myself all the time as such. Ha.
