Tim Tam vs Penguin Review
|Hello Nicey, Wifey and YMOS.|
I work for an airline and spend most of my time barrelling around the world, landing in far off and exotic places. I have to hold on to my hat and close my eyes against the unceasing gale of culture shock. Not having access to a nice cup of tea most of the time, the natural way to restore an inner balance is a wander round your lovely website, which seems to give me inner peace. A type of ‘cyber tea’ if you will. I think it might be something to do with a sort of distilled englishness that pervades the site. Anyhow, browsing the site while in Dubai, I came across some comments regarding Tim-Tams re. Penguins (personally I rejoice in a Tim-Tam but despise Penguins). Intrigued to see the results of the head to head, I clicked on the link and got the following message:
Gosh. What controversial statements am I missing out on? How do you feel about the citizens of the UAE being unable to benefit from your Tim-Tam / Penguin debate?
There is a supermarket opposite the hotel and I will now go biscuit hunting.
Thanks for your lovely site.
PS I find Hiromis’ regular despatches utterly charming – surely I am not the only one who looks forward to hearing of her next Korean related biscuit adventures?
|Nicey replies: Richard,
Firstly I shall be using our airplan icon for your message which until now has mean't issues with tea and biscuits arising whilst on an airplane, or something like that. It now also encompasses anything that people who work for airlines have to say.
We've been told before that the United Arab Emirates have blocked some of our content, I suppose we should be flattered that they have gone to so much trouble on our account. We would tone down our offensive language if we knew what it was we were saying. Perhaps in future they could just underline the offending bits in red and put a note at the bottom.
As for Biscuit Correspondent Hiromi, we have her latest report coming right up.
