The Funky Fungus, is a good one Bill, but I just love The History of the Universe.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Frances. I wonder what we would all come up with if we did the same exercisesmile

Oh, it looks like a fine Austrian 'Mehlspeis', for example 'Kaiserschmarrn'! - Interesting collection of terms! I miss Shutterchance!
Bill Phillips: It doesn't mention Droitwich either.
Kaiserschmarrn is a traditional Austrian dessert. It is a caramelized pancake made with rum-soaked raisins, eggs, flour, sugar, and butter. The pancake is split into pieces while frying, sprinkled with powdered sugar, and served hot with plum sauce on the side or on top."

sounds (and looks) delicious

Someone burned the scrambled eggs!

Now I have found what I'm looking for - Sexual reproduction - just as I was about to inform you that the essay was missing something...
Bill Phillips: I expected you to home in on that Ray

Mmmm...this looks tasty!

There is nothing in your list of words that mentions drinking beer or getting rats out of sofas. It is seriously flawed
Bill Phillips: It also has a seriously American bias, and they, of course, know nothing about beer

This looks like a piece of - I don't know what - after having been cooked on the barbecue Bill.What is all that accompanying twaddle?
Bill Phillips: The History of the Universe in 200 Words or Less
Even if this fungus is edible it is ugly and unappetizing. History lesson is good.
Bill Phillips: It certainly is delightfully revolting
Don't bother to enter 'Master Chef' Bill
Bill Phillips: I am quite a good cook!
Clearly an American version of the history of the universe smile Great fungus shot, Bill.
Bill Phillips: Isn't it justsmile
Reminds me a bit of a confectionery item that was left a little too long in the oven, Bill.
Bill Phillips: you have seen my cooking then?

Bill Phillips: Nor me. i haven't a clue what it is

It looks like a pile of chocolate pastries, I have never seen fungus like it before. I shall get the dictionary out now to help with the reading of The History!!!! grin
Bill Phillips: you would just like it to be a pile of chocolate pastries Linda...be honest grin
It is a bit of a grotesque type of fungus isn't it.
Bill Phillips: Well you wouldn't want it as part of a wedding bouquet that's for sure Brian grin
If this fungus was growing in your cellar Bill.... it's time to move outsmile... i like your
Readers Digest version of a billion yearssmile....petersmile
Bill Phillips: I haven't got a cellar Peter but my daughter Helen has so i'll get her to check. I think there is a distinct American bias in this summary grin
Looks like a fungus invasion. Nice one Bill
Bill Phillips: Nature's way of tidying up

I'm so glad I didn't see this at breakfast - positively gross!
Bill Phillips: Especially if you had been eating scrambled eggs. I imagine that this fruiting body has passed the point of maturity and has released its' spores (this should get Ray going) Before that it was probably an attractive beast

Didn't understand the first part of the history of the universe as I didn't do any sciences at school but the second part is closer to home. What is Composition referring to?
Bill Phillips: I have no idea. mind you this is clearly American so it could mean anything grin
Is it edible? It almost looks cooked smile
