The Great Heartland Biscuit Thread

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Some of the nonsense contained herein may be very loosely related to The Sisters of Mercy, but I wouldn't bet your PayPal account on it. In keeping with the internet's general theme nothing written here should be taken as Gospel: over three quarters of it is utter gibberish, and most of the forum's denizens haven't spoken to another human being face-to-face for decades. Don't worry your pretty little heads about it. Above all else, remember this: You don't have to stay forever. I will understand.

A sprained foot & trapped at home with NO biscuits. At this point I’d be happy for the odd nice biscuit or even a custard cream!

Ugh broken not sprained. So the biscuit drought continues. But at least I’ll be in fine fettle by the Roundhouse. If only the’d play Leeds.

At least, it would be if we could agree on what the National Biscuit should be. Alas, this question has been criminally-overlooked over the past couple of years as this country has wrestled with far less important issues, such as what Brexit actually means.

We at FUCT have been saying for a long time that if only we as a nation could come together over tea and a National Biscuit then the referendum might have had a very different outcome, but instead our political leaders have been too focused on pitting the Nice crowd against the Lincolns, the Jammy Dodger brigade against the fans of Custard Creams, exacerbating the Rich Tea/Digestive divide, and seeking to paint lovers of the One True Biscuit (the Bourbon, naturally) as miscreants and ne'er-do-wells.

Alas, it appears that in these dark days of "adequate food supplies" the National Biscuit will be exactly that - a single biscuit that the rich and well-heeled will take the lion's share of, while the rest of us have to content ourselves with crumbs.

Wither the sunlit uplands where people of all ages, creeds, gender identities, national origins and sexual orientations can sit together on a vast picnic rug, all enjoying a cuppa and the National Biscuit? Surely this is a cause worth fighting for?

Y'know, as tolerant and indulgent of the opinions of others as FUCT is, and as painful as it is for me to admit it, there are militant, dare I say extreme, factions within the Church that are less resistant to the current wave of populism than others. There are those who believe that the best way to solve a problem is a boot in the door at tea-time and cattle-trucks to ship the church's perceived enemies to Biscuit Re-Education & eXample-setting Institutions for Training (BREXITs) - these are fearsome places, where the merest indication that an inmate is reaching for a Lincoln results in electro-shock therapy and enforced consumption of Keurig-pod tea. The more tolerant wing of the church abhors such behaviour, but if you people resist our impassioned pleas to embrace the One True Biscuit and insist on consuming The Devil's Trinity (Custard Creams, Nice, and Jammy Dodgers) than I fear that the more reasonable voices will be drowned out by those of the baying mob.

You have it within your power to resist BREXITs - should you find yourself on the receiving end of tea made with sub-boiling water mixed with powdered milk then I'm afraid you only have yourselves to blame.

NEVER! Nice biscuits rule! I don't like the others though...
Am not a huge tea drinker either. Unless I'm in a proper caff.
