Were they Jaffa Cakes?

They're not actually biscuits. The clue is in the name.
You may quote me on that.

My portrait was on a box of biscuits?

They're not actually biscuits. The clue is in the name.

Whilst, legally-speaking (for purposes of VAT), you're correct: the debate around the issue produced an article on the BBC ("Cake or biscuit? Why Jaffa Cakes excite philosophers") that manages to wend it's way to linking the conundrum to a discussion on gender fluidity. But is it art?

Some variety of Chulac baked good, certainly.

Thought that was J'Far cakes?  No?

Or is that taking the pun too far?

Just musing - do you remember 70s Dredd, how he was all action poses, dramatic exclamations of his own name and generally acting a bit up himself? I reckon he was having a mid-life crisis.

Twenty years as a ramrod stickler, he hits his forties and goes off the rails. He's already got the big fuck-off motorbike of course, and a new wardrobe or a younger girlfriend aren't really on the cards, so he watches a few holo-slugs, loses a ton of weight and starts acting like some action-vid star twenty years his junior. Why do you think they sent him to the moon for six months, it was just getting embarrassing! Near death in the Cursed Earth, followed by Cal and the Apocalypse War knocked the twattery out of him, returning him to the complex sober character we've come to know subsequently, and seen previously in various flashbacks.

Only explanation.

I wonder if it means anything that William Gibson is London today of all days?
