food (kinda, it's British) 

This morning I have mostly been grossing @bright_helpings by eating Bovril on toast in his general vicinity.

Only because he helped me get the lid off the jar though!

For the uninitiated, Bovril is a semiliquid paste made from salt and beef. It's a little runnier than Ketchup.


I just found out where Bovril gets its name (other than the "Bov" part for "bovine").

I'm not going to say what it is here because you'll never believe me. Go look it up. Believe me, it's worth it.


essentially, "Use the Force, Luke!" 😁

this goes some way to explaining Avril Lavigne, also.

@Nikolai_Kingsley Who was commonly known as "Bovril Leminge" at the time of her popularity...
