A fact and a question from the Gabba

What we learnt last night:

  • Stew is not a stimulant

And here’s a question for you:

  • Shouldn’t Mitchell Johnson’s tattooed arm be ‘the doing arm’?


Mike Gatting wasn't receiving the King Cricket email when he dropped that ludicrously easy chance against India in 1993.


Why risk it when it's so easy to sign up?


  1. How can you call beef carbonade,albeit made with Guinness,stew KC sire?It kept you going till the stumps so yes,it is a simulant.

  2. Thank goodness! I was fearing a Venn diagram from Ged with “Things you put in stew” and “Things you do with arm”, with a small intersection.

  3. V, carbonade is excellent and sustaining, but there is a definite danger of sleep immediately following consumption.

    We were strong enough to resist.

    Others were not.

  4. You can absent-mindedly spill your dregs over your spare duvet. You can absent-mindedly overcook your stew or over-season said stew with sedatives.

    But how on earth do you “absent-mindedly research Venn diagrams”, string?

    Still, many thanks to you, the fruits of your research have made my day.

    Ged’s day is easily made, I hear you all cry.

  5. In fairness I didn’t spill any dregs on the Summer weight duvet, but this evening I did manage to dip the corner in my bowl of chilli. I’ll get the cat to lick it off so no harm done.

  6. Well, Ged. After a long night in front of the telly on Wednesday, everything I did yesterday was absent minded. If anything, it’s the use of the word “research” that could be questioned…
