TWO "COMMUNITY SUPPORT OFFICERS" (do clickonit for a hilariously unrepresentative image) are harrassing the local cashpoint beggar. I pinged in here to avoid them...
For 35p just now I purchased "Knorr Goracy Kubek Zupa Pieczarkova z grzankami... Bez konserwantow..." As manufactured by "Unilever Polska S.A. ul. Domaniewska 41, 02-672 Warszawa" It looks pretty tasty compared to the CUCUMBER flavour (again Polish) cup-a-soup it was next to...
I will let you know how I get on with it.
There were even Polish people swearing chattering away "tak tak tak! Proszę!" on the bus and swearing "kórwa! kórwa!" when it refused to stop at the stop that says in English "bus stop closed" all over it. We now have a million Poles in this country. They are our newest immigrant invasion, and in my opinion the most inoffensive. (Ooo! Am I racist for implying immigrants can be offensive?!? Well a goodly lot of them DO take the flagrant pee-pee out of our system and somehow end up with free houses etc that the English people can't get hold of. So...)
Anyway if it weren't for Central European immigrants (as they like to be called) we wouldn't have a decent bakers for miles around. The Hungarian bakery on the high road sells NORMAL SHAPED sliceable bread covered in seeds of various types... before they came along the ONLY bread you could get round here (except for at the hypermarket) were flatbreads ("pides") of various Turkish types...
Well I'm off to get sundried tomato bread now I've remembered ... something to go with Goracy Kubek Pieczarkowa!
And of course my mind strays... to "Polish Heroin", the so-called "Kompot" (kompot is a dessert made of stewed apple or other fruit puree - like pie-filling), but the Polish "heroin kompot" was a product extracted from poppy straw and "uniquely dangerous to inject" in the Soviet days when addicts in the Eastern Bloc must have lived in utter outer darkness...
