Showing me age here but anybody else get the cane (at school) for repeated lateness after waiting in the massive feck-off queue in the tuck shop at dinner time? Loved them but the dried onions boiled into slime and the "tomato" sauce that tasted nothing like them but was at least red, a sort of nuclear red were a bit gut-rotting. Any other school delicacies worth getting beaten by an 18 stone sociopath (allegedly) who regularly flew off the handle for no reason?

No not for a hotdog but for the barmaid not being quick enough with my pint of scotch!


Got clouted off hotdog hughesy who was a teacher at Ryhope for giving him stick about him selling hot dogs on the side.
