    I can't cope with these feelings - Scotland are out of the world cup but girlfriend has just brought me a bit of home made eccles cake - I can't decide if I should laugh or cry

    I had the same feeling when Texas Tech scored that touch down on my Longhorns at the last second. Alcohol always helps.

    Cry while eating the cake, and laugh when your mouth is full. For bonus points, let people see what you're chewing while you are sobbing. :p

    Alternatively, drink the alcohol first, and then eat the cake afterwards for increased sweetness.

    Do all of the above and post it on YouTube. We'll run a poll based on our responses and you can decide whether to laugh or cry.

    Q: What's the definition of a mixed emotion?

    A: Seeing your mother-in-law drive off a cliff in your brand new car.

    I think this recipe is very apropos right now:

    Code:
    Christmas Cookies
    
    1 cup of water
    1 tsp baking soda
    1 cup of sugar
    1 tsp salt
    1 cup of brown sugar
    Lemon juice
    4 large eggs
    1 cup nuts
    2 cups of dried fruit
    1 bottle Patron Silver Tequila
    
    Sample the Patron to check quality.
    
    Take a large bowl, check the Patron again to be sure it is of the highest 
    quality, pour one level cup and drink. Better if chilled first.
    
    Turn on the electric mixer. Beat one cup of butter in a large fluffy bowl.
    
    Add one teaspoon of sugar. Beat again.
    
    At this point it's best to make sure the Patron is still OK, try another
    chilled cup just in case.
    
    Turn off the mixerer thingy. Break 2 leggs and add to the bowl and 
    chuck in the cup of dried fruit.
    
    Pick the frigging fruit off floor. Mix on the turner. If the fried druit gets 
    stuck in the beaterers just pry it loose with a drewscriver.
    
    Sample the Patron to check for tonsisticity.
    
    Next, sift two cups of salt, or something. Check the Patron.
    
    Now shift the lemon juice and strain your nuts.
    
    Add one table. Add a spoon of sugar, or somefink. Whatever you can find.
    
    Greash the oven. Turn the cake tin 360 degrees and try not to fall over. 
    Don't forget to bean off the turner.
    
    Finally, throw the bowl through the window, finish the Patron and make 
    sure to put the stove in the dishwasher.

    I should have changed the recipe to call for Scotch instead of Tequila, I realize, in honor of the OP's team and nation. But either way...

    The recipe joke thing? Heck no, that's an old one going around. All over the web. I didn't mean to imply authorship of that at all.

    Oh yeah. For a real treat, get a bottle of Gentleman Jack and put it in the freezer. Sip it neat, no ice, no water. It's so smooth and nice an gentle, until you realize it has stolen your mind and replaced it with someone who thinks he can sing, tell the bestest jokes, do RiverDance, and possibly fly.

    How. It was a great feeling watching that happen.

    Besides Texas deserved to loose that game after the very poor first 1/2 they played.

    Oh it was great game (yes I am a Red Raider)
