You can't actually copyright food or any other GM thing (animal, vegetable or mineral). These things are all protected by patents, which only last 20 years from the date of development before entering the public domain. So - not to worry!

This is just like eBay! I dunno if I want to sell - I just wondered whether it was worth moving it from the cupboard where my wife put it (after using it, for Gawds sake). But if anyone is interested, I do have a nice mug with a ring of blue and yellow squares on it.

Sorry to make you feel bad - but my copies sometimes arrive on a Saturday (which I kinda like because I remember when it used to be in the shops that day)

Friday mug is not for sale. And, clearly, for drinking from either.

The bidding for the other mug (nice, white with blue and yellow squares - not related to 2K or any comic) is at ?8. If it reaches ?10 I'll sell it. And if it reaches ?20 I'll even clean it.

Sorry for the cross post

Not a fan of tomato soup. Unless it's a really big tin?

I have a heat sensitive Rogue Trooper mug from the 90s. It has Friday on it, and when liquid is poured in a blackened speech bubble clears to reveal "Dispensing Coffee Now, Friday". It was a prize for having a letter printed and, as far as I know, was never avaialble in any shops. Any idea wha this is worth?

A) Quality harback editions of classics from the turn of the century (Wells, Dickens, Alice etc). Get em cheap on Amazon.com (not the UK) and pay no VAT cos they are books.

Q) What can I buy Mrs X for Christmas? Strictly no DVDs, CDs or things for two people (eg holidays or cars!) are allowed.

It's not the horses fault. It's in the genes.

(Although in a simalr vein, a bear walks into a pub and says "Can I have a pint of lagar and a......................packet of crisps." The barman says, "Why the big paws?")

Anyway - my question is: Why does your voice sound different on tape from when you speak it?

LEGAL FACT: If Logan's post is true then it is almost certain he can claim he has been unfairly dismissed. Speak to a lawyer!
