Scampi Fry & Dairylea Lunchables on the 176 to Penge

23 Oct

LOCATION: The 176 to Penge.

PRICE: £2.18 (buys multiple sandwiches)

BREAD: Diarylea Lunchables biscuit things.

FILLING: 2 squares Dairylea Lunchables shiny ham, 2 squares Dairylea Lunchables shiny bendy cheese, 1 Scampi Fry.

PROS: We were hungover and I can’t deny that we just wanted to cram as many filthy snacks into our faces as possible. This was infinitely more pleasurable because we felt guilty for doing it; what kind of sicko sandwiches Dairylea Lunchables with Scampi Fries?

CONS: Apart from the fact that this is obviously sick, the ‘sandwich’ was one dry, crumbly bastard, even when washed down with a warm can of London Pride.  Also, it’s really quite incredible that the smelliest of all snack items, the Scampi Fry, is totally overwhelmed by the Lunchables; the flavour is, remarkably, completely lost and we all know that they properly KIFF. That’s just like, anti-science or some shit.

Still went back for a second though.

SCORE: 2/10

    I’ve always thought Penge sounds slightly obscene.

      That’s why I used it. I was actually going in the other direction but I can never resist using Penge. YOU KNOW WHAT IT SOUNDS LIKE.

    I’ve found that this is normally better if you substitute the scampi fry with a round cheesy puff. Although it does make it much more difficult to eat.

    Fucking hell Graves: that’s ten types of wrong right there!

    The smell issue reminds me of the time I produced a brace of pheasants from my rucsac at my pal’s and when he came back into the room he said to the group, “God, has someone farted?” And I replied, “No, I’ve just taken your dinner out of my bag, is all.” Hahahahaaaaaa

    That is quite possibly FILF! However can I suggest a scampi baguette with tartare sauce next time on a hangover day?

    Don’t worry, I’ve done worse things on the 176 to Penge.

    Ahh, the 176 to Penge. The place that sounds slightly less obscene than Vange in Essex. Oh and I suppose Twatt in Orkney / Shetland

      Did you know there is a place in Ireland called Muff? It has a diving club. Not. Even. Joking.

        Years ago I worked in a Credit Card Call Centre. I once spoke to a customer who had bought petrol there. Their statement said “Muff Service Station”. The customer’s name was Mike Hunt. This is not a lie.

        Come on Russell, you’re making that up surely (PLEASE SAY IT’S TRUE)

    I’m happy to say I speak the truth 😉
