Morrisons launches bizarre Yorkshire Pudding pizza thing

OohAahVicar

Google the "Yorkshire drop"

Seriously. It's a thing. The Morrisons offer seems too normal after that.

Seriously...ideal topping additions

It's going to be a struggle to find space for dessert after, so it should be included for psychological purposes. Whatever you choose, it can't be anything too moist (hmmm....moist) as that would spoil the texture of an otherwise master class dish. So I propose lining one side with a simple row of 5 or 6 eccles cakes.

Seriously though...Yorkshire pudding is just an oven baked pancake. Personally I prefer savoury pancakes to sweet...so where's the problem?

User dialled his PC into a permanent state of 'Brown Alert'

I worked as a help desk drudge at a county council in the 90s. Three wonderful calls stick in my memory:

1) The IT Dev manager switching both foreground and background colours to white on Windows 3.11 just "to see what happens"

2) The Finance Director who called me up because she couldn't get her network plug to stay fixed in the wall after moving her PC (seriously trying to plug a square token ring plug into a round ethernet port...)

3) The Chief Solicitor who complained how every time he finished a Word doc and went to save it, it disappeared. After many visits I stopped to watch the entire process - after finishing a doc, pleased with his work he would lean back in his chair and knock the token ring cable in the wall behind him just enough to lose the connection...

Vodafone won't pay employee expenses for cups of coffee

The difference is that when you're in the office, you can bring your own lunch from home; on site meeting customers that's not an option. I wouldn't pay out a claim when someones on a short visit though.
