    I can trump that with the story of a woman who had 27 contact lenses stuck in one eye. At the same time.

    Or (also, please, pay attention to J.K. Rowling, it's spelled ‘eurgh’), a 6,792-calorie meal: chips fried in batter, fish fried in batter, two slices of pizza fried in batter, two sausages fried in batter, two hamburger patties (I think beef) fried in batter, onion rings fried in batter, chicken nuggets fried in batter, and fritters fried in batter, and since it's in Glasgow, this ‘crunchie box’ is served with Irn-Bru.


    It sells for £10, they say.

    I must amend the above: closer examination of the photographic evidence I myself submitted to this thread leads me to conclusively conclude that the chips are not, I repeat, NOT fried in batter, and, just to clarify, neither is the Irn-Bru.

    Of course battered and fried can be tasty as part of a meal, but this meal is simply beyond the pale. This must be why all my 19th c Scottish ancestors are dead.
