If you like prawns......

Hot tip for anyone living near Portsmouth. It seems someone at Tesco (Port Solent) has made a mistake when entering product data into the system. They entered "Madagascan bikini prawn skewers" as 50p instead of what they are supposed to be, which is 5 per box. I spotted this last night and thought it was too good to be true. Took two boxes to the checkout and got the lady to confirm the price, and indeed it was 50p. She said that seemed awfully cheap, but thats what it said on the system so thats how much they were! I went back this morning and got another 4 boxes, again only 50p. So, if you like tiger prawns, get down to Tesco!

Prawns

Ironically, Tim discovered the other night that he was in fact, allergic to the prawns and so now has a fridgefull of them! - I believe Murphy's Law has reared it's ugly head.

This is unfortunately true. I've never been able to eat mussels, but thought prawns would be OK. Unfortunately, after a prawn eating session, I went round to Jimbo's, where I was suddenly sick on his sitting-room carpet without any warning at all. Sorry Jimbo!

Fortunately for me, having Tim vomit on one of my posessions was not a new experience (RibNet xmas bash 3 years ago...?), so I was there with cleaning materials in a flash!

If you want to get rid of your prawns, one of my colleagues will buy a box or two!

So Tim, you bought some really cheap african Prawns which made you ill, oh dear. However what I now suggest you do is buy some lobster pots off Lurcher, bait them with the Prawns which will can then be used to catch lobsters (from June onwards) to sell and recover your money

Pete
