Ah hav tae tak issue wi the lyrics fer the Jacobs operetta which meemory serves me was actly in the 19 an 70s.
Ah recall that the sinister Free State puppets actually sung that they made "Jacob's Mikado diddely ah do, coaconut crame, an Kimberly too" A little reported sade affect o' the Celtic tiger, by the wye, was the ultimate in bisket depraavity that was the choaclate Kimberly.

Ye micht well be referin' tae a differn advert Wulliam. WJ sung backin' vocals oan the yin that went "Kimberly Mikado, an' coconut cream, sumyin ye love, will luve sumyin." Which made nae sense tae me then or noo.

Ye may hiv a point oan the biskit callamity that wis the choclate Kimberly. This perhaps warrants furthair investigashun. Ah putt it up thair wi' Free State Johnnie Onion Rings, which bair nae comparison tae the yins frae Tandragee. Ah will putt yin o' the team ontae it, maist likely a hen fur they knaw mair aboot the cookin'.

Yer correc so ye are. Wans that study the Jacobs biskit advertisements refer tae the yist, twath and thurd dispensations an it is the twath ah wiz quoatin. The sinister Free State puppets wur named Mr Spring and Mr Sprong ah believe.

Yer knowledge of biskits is impressive. Thair is a visitin' Lekturship in Free State Food Stuffs (focusin' oan why Norn food is better)available at South Aist Ards Bible an' Caterin' College if ye fancy it.

Thank ye fer the kudos. Ah hav tae say my intrist in fother frae foreign laans started when me mither introduced me tae Paris buns when ah wiz a wean. Younger yins may find it hard tae belive that we had such a cosmopoalitin diet at the fut o' Slemish fifty year ago but ther ye are.

Ah wud hav tae counsel moderation in a' things, even wi' guid Ulster Scotch fotherin'.
Frinstance, mair than fowr slices o' veda micht tak' ye ootside the safe realms o' Presbyterianism, so it micht:

Jaipurs Wulliam, afore raidin yer link ah assumed that "Chandogya Upanishad" wis whit ye shooted at yer houn' at bedtime, noo ah knaw differn. Ah kin see noo thit forin kultures hiv raised the veda loaf tae god like status, nat thit thit's surprisin' fur nathin' gaes better wi' a bit o' Pinkerton's Streaky.

These Hindus are richt mind, thars nae point in a fifth veda, fur yin slice is tae wee fur tae mak a sandwidge.
