I hereby notify you all that the inaugural meeting of a subgroup of the Daddy.org (are we allowed to form subgroups at will? I hope so!) took place on Sunday 13 November, between the hours of seven thirty and (roughly) midnight. Hoorah!

The subgroup decided to be known as P.I.G.G.Y., or:

Pudding Implementation Group of Greater York

The purpose of the group is to implement puddings (by which I mean to eat them). There were six puddings at the inaugural meeting, and six forumgoers (myself, Malcolm, Kelly, Allen Key, Clara and the tantalisingly elusive Deanery!), thereby averaging out at one pudding per person!

Have all the members of the P.I.G.G.Y. recovered from their pudding feats?

I, personally, have more than recovered from the auspicious occasion, and eagerly await the next meeting. I'd also like to share with other viewers a photograph of the pudding I made for the occasion:



They are, of course, gingerbread terrorists.

Excuse me for mentioning it, but can I interest you in a panoramic print of York - http://www.panoramicyork.co.uk ? No? Oh well - just thought I'd ask.

Due to a vegetable and fruit overload yesterday I have now returned to normal. It was a quite frankly fabulous night.

I am so well recovered that last night I enjoyed a hearty wodge of chocolate bread and butter pudding, which really does become a very different substance when left to sit in the fridge a bit. In fact, I'm rapidly coming to the conclusion that chocolate bread and butter pudding, like revenge, is a dish best served cold.

What became of the elusive seventh terrorist, Malcolm? I do hope he didn't strike out on his own as some kind of confectionary vigilante.

He's currently being held in a tupperware box, without charge or legal representation. I expect to keep him there for the next 2 - 3 years.

Those gingerbread terrorists are fantastic. If you had baked in a chamber of baking soda next to a chamber of lemon then you could have had authentic explosion effect

So can we all join? I'll eat a pudding right now if I have to. Just watch me!

Summerberry Roulade? What's that - some kind of namby pamby girly southern dessert?

It's worth noting that one of the early findings of the P.I.G.G.Y. is that the more pudding one consumes, the more one craves *sprouts*.

This seems to suggest there is some kind of sprouts/pudding continuum....hmmm, interesting!

Everyone is of course free to join P.I.G.G.Y. to answer Spanners' question (I have just this moment received confirmation that Gertrude, as a resident of the P.I.G.G.Y.'s catchment area, has agreed to join the group as a fully active member!) - we will of course keep the forum informed of the dates of future events, so if people across the country want to eat puddings on those dates in sympathy with the P.I.G.G.Y. that will be most wonderful!

I would like to disassociate myself with this statement. I have never, and will never, crave sprouts.

All this proves is that you just haven't eaten enough pudding yet, Malcolm. Give it time (and some more pudding). With another few mouthfuls of gingerbread terrorist on sunday, you'd have been crying out for sprouts, trust me.

It may be that sprouts are the antidote to pudding! But this is a rather wild hypothesis, and I can't back it up with scientific proof as yet.

I personally found that I had a craving for carrots and parsnips, which I indeed ate in a lovely beef casserole the very next day. Maybe it's a winter veg thing cos I'm with Malcolm here - the sprout is always wrong.

Maybe it was just Kelly who wanted to partake of sprouts - I think I actually craved hula hoops more than anything (this rather debunks my sprouts/pudding theory! whoops!)

Crisis averted: sprouts are NOT the opposite of pudding.

When you say "sprouts are not the opposite of pudding", I think you're being misleading. In fact, I think the whole basis of your argument is misleading. If Deanery ever bothered to post, I'm sure he'd confirm that what was craved was so much more than sprouts - it was sprouts and salty gravy! THAT is the opposite of pudding.

Aye, in fact just last night Deanery was telling me that he was most looking forward to Christmas in order to have a valid excuse to eat just that - sprouts in gravy (not sure if he went as far as to specify its saltiness). I would leave it to him to show support for your theory (as one shouldn't really speak for another without their knowledge), but...

How can we get Deanery to post more? Maybe we could bribe him with sprouts?

I'd be prepared to offer Deanery one sprout per post up to 50 sprouts, for starters. I won't extend to gravy, though, unless its vegetarian gravy.

Any other ideas?

Perhaps Deanery's worried that if he becomes a regular poster, his TDDO Award and Fruit Pastille will be revoked?

I love the sound of P.I.G.G.Y. and when I've lost another few pounds, so I can fit into a particular dress for a wedding, I would like to join. The thought of eating lots of pudding, having not allowed myself to partake of the daily doughnut or mince pie for ages, is very appealing.

I've had not one but two jaffa cake muffins today. Am I in? Although the Greater York bit might not work for us Midlanders. Hows about an affiliate group called B.A.P.S. (Brummies 'Aving Pudding Society)?
I don't think we should revoke Deanery's fruit pastille (as trying to retrieve it may not be a pleasant experience for any concerned) however the concept of bribing someone with sprouts is entirely bewildering to me.

Imagine, if you will, a giant jam roly-poly, but less firmly rolled, and with fresh whipped cream filling up all the gaps in the middle. Oh, and a comfit/medley of seasonal summer berries instead of jam. And instead of roly-poly, it's the sort of fake sponge which looks authentic but is actually made of artificially sweetened ghosts - one stern look and it winks out of existence.

Southern? Pah, in Wythenshawe the closest they have is the Kola-Kube Pasty. Nobody South of Cheadle has ever experienced the calorific goodness that is the Summerberry Roulade.

I need a pudding now! Having read all this madness about chocolate and jaffa and lashings and lashings of undefinaeble sweet goo - I demand to have a pudding! I may have to leave work at once to obtain one! Am worried about fact I am no longer a Midlander and have never been a Greater Yorker! How will I ever get to eat puddings in the company of true pudding appreciaters?? damn the geography of it all....

I think you probably need to eat at least six jaffa cake muffins to qualify (we operate to a six puddings minimum entry level), but as the Daddy of the Forum himself, you should I think get honorary membership even without eating vast quantities of muffin!
