If I am what I eat then … I must have eaten about …
3233 fishes, if you include the about 2,400 mussels, lots of fish and fernerks, some whitebait, mebbe some 50 salmon, an Arctic char, a very small quantity of eel (smoked), my share of these:
6236 loaves, including about 520 home-baked sourdough ones
and around 8,032 pints of home-brewed beer and mebbe as many commercial ‘beerpints’. Cases of whisky, wine, no wild women, mind.
I’ve eaten frogs legs, shark, innumerable insects, I expect. Goosnargh cakes, Blackpool rock, a few stones of Yorkshire pudding, Paris buns, Eccles cakes, Pontefract cakes, London Gin, Stilton, Melton Mowbray pies, Aran Pilot potatoes,
Mmmmmmmm – potatoes … my favourite … must be nearly teatime ….
