    Soooo ... begs some questions ...

    How did they test it? With or without ice cream?
    How did it get there ... ?
    What was the "newly-wed groom" doing asleep?
    How would they react to a pile of trifle?

    This reminds me of a running gag in the 3rd Rock From the Sun sitcom from a few years ago. For those who aren't familiar:

    I am Jellous of your witty responses. I guess you two come from a unique mold. I am too set in my ways to be as funny as you guys. However, I scream-ed with laughter on reading your posts

    Really, we shouldn't be laughing though. It's not a trifling matter...


    Sorry again.

    On a similar 'food mistaken for something dangerous' theme, my brother's wife found out that her mothers recipes for Christmas pudding has the same density and characteristics as semtex when viewed through an airport bag scanner on a trip through a German airport a couple of years ago.

    I'm suddenly reminded of that Flaming Lips song... what was it called again? Darn, lost it. :p

    It's quite dense than? :p

    My granny had a similar thing. She had her bag pulled out because she had a box of drawing pastels in her bag, which happen to have lead in them. A line of small cylindrical metal objects in a line worried them somewhat, for some reason. The idea of my granny going crazy on the plane and shooting rounds into the air amused me highly at the time.

    Golf balls x-ray funny too - I have had my golf bag searched -- here is Japan they x-ray all bags to be checked BEFORE you check in, yes, you get your stuff x-rayed before waiting in line to check-in -- I have been told it was implemented because of the activists in Japan in the 1970's-80's the Red Army.

    My point is that my golf balls can either be found in my golf bag (as was the case at the airport) or in the water hazzard on the 5th hole! But never in the middle of the fairway, or anywhere near the pin on a tee shot on a par 3
