Please offer your suggestions (no, it can't be me) and we should collectively agree or disagree.

First:

Mushrooms.
They're rank. They're fungal, they're not even nice looking, they grown on the floor, they don't belong in any meal really, they offer very little in terms of pleasantry either as flavour or a 'thing'. They come in pies, which frankly should just be steak or chicken, not steak & (unless it's ale).

Mushrooms aren't even clean. For example, The FDA allows 19 maggots and 74mites in every 3.5 ounce can off mushrooms in the USA. Who the fudge wants that?
Well.. , depends on the kind of Mush'shrooms.

Now back on topic:
BMW drivers with a penchant for Gel/Mousse.
Anyone wearing a coral choker/necklace (ala Hammond/Hammster)

Definitely the latter.
BMW with a penchant for nice hair - I'm not convinced Boomhauer.

Same people different (in general) religion.
Pakistani kashmiris are more alike to Indian Kashmiris than Indian Kashmiris are to Indian Tamils.

A theocratic/political division forced by Jinnah and Nehru and blamed on the British

I thought they were dodgy baked apples, either way, why?

Seems pointless to stuff a mushroom.

Yeah, the veg does look a bit sad. Bacon, maybe some porcini to provide fungal variation, jus de grenade, and a decent Chablis. I'm hungry now.
