Dolly Mixtures

Post by pandammonium » Wed May 04, 2005 2:45 am

There I was in the campus shop the other day, and I was stood in the queue beside some bags of sweeties, and I noticed they had some bags of Basset's sweeties. One of them said Dolly Mix, but that's just wrong. They're Dolly Mixtures. There was a transparent part on the bag, and they looked like Dolly Mixtures alright. Why change the name like that? For a start, it changes the whole prosodic nature of the name.

What was your favourite Dolly Mixture? Mine was them little cubey ones.

prosodic?
Is that an anti-depressant?
I am a thick Black Country bloke, please enlighten me.

*shudder* I went out with someone from there once.

Prosody is explained here. It's not an anti-depressant, but it's actually not a bad idea for the name of one...hmm...

Thanks for the link.
I have tried, but cannot digest it tonight, my tiny Black Country brain is full.
I need to lubricate it wth alcohol so something slips out in order to insert something new.
PS I like the way you drift from a pseudo intellectual argument into "Mine was the little cubey ones".

If there's one thing Panda's good at, it's drifting inexplicabley from one train of thought to another...

Hehehe - it drives my bloke up the wall ;)

I don't really get prosody either, which is one reason why I directed you to Wikipedia instead of explaining it to you myself.

I probably would feed it to my dolly if it still had its head, just to get rid of it.
