Allergy advice

Jam-filled donuts from the Co-op (or the Kwop as my Nain pronounced it). The usual allergy advice is on the packet:
This product contains or may contain traces of Nuts and Sesame Seeds.

But what's this underneath?
This product contains or may also contain traces of Wheat, Gluten, Barley, Egg, Oats, Milk, Mustard, Rye, Soya, Sulphites.

Oh, right. Donuts. Probably linked somehow. But, hang on, there's another bit:
These products have been prepared in an area that handles the following ingredients: Celery, Crustaceans, Fish, Lupins and Molluscs.

Never mind the allergy threat. Where on earth are they making these donuts?

Packaged food = the work of the devil, (well-known fact).

Its the utter abstractness of 'Lupins' that I like most.

I was once stripping out an old coop shop, this one was from the turn of the century, it was groceries and funerals sort of thing.

All the shelving was solid oak, all neatly compartmented, which you can now view up at Beamish museum if you are interested.

We needed to sort out our toilet arrangements, so I sent one of the young lads out, a student on a summer job as it happens, with a wrench to open the bogshed door to see if we could get the toilet serviceable again.

We heard a bit of hammering and banging then a great yelp followed by what sounded like a burglar that had been rumbled, running off.

We left it a while as we were busy, we see rats qutie often so we assumed he had an encounter. Until we noticed that he had not come back, so I went to see what was going on.

It turned out the shed was not an outside toilet afterall, it was the entrance to the coffin store and a coffin lid had fell on him as he opened the door.

To this day Ive never seen him again, he did not even turn up for the three days wages we owed him.

The coop good with a fud.

In a greenhouse somewhere in Kew, no gardeners were harmed in the making of this product.
