The Government is clear that creationism and intelligent design are not part of the science National Curriculum programmes of study and should not be taught as science.

    what englishman would put a perfectly good pie in mushy peas? none, even while drunk. lol
    The infamous floater eh? I’ve made some interesting drunk food but you’re right, never that.
    I hate mushy peas – which is a bit like hating soccer (hate that too) where I live!

    We don’t really have those in QLD. Maybe can get it here and there…but rare.
    Think it’s more a SA….maybe WA too(?) tradition. Heard about them, but sure I’ve never seen one. Can’t imagine what technique would be used to eat it :)))

    Just found this on Wiki…..
    “In 2003, the pie floater was recognised as a South Australian Heritage Icon by the National Trust of Australia.”
    Hahahahaha – Heritage Icon?

    Don’t laugh…they recently added Cane Toads to that list, much to the outrage of the population. Not sure if they since removed the entry!

    I only know one thing as a floater. And that looks about as appetising.
    I rest my case. The Aussies are like the Brits on a permanent holiday.
    They are soooo laid back.

    I can imagine a bit of outrage – if they carry on like they were you’ll be knee deep in toads in a few years. You’d think myxomatosis would have given folks a heads up.

    “Knee Deep In Toads” — that’d be a great name for a band!
