    In my day we would have picked and cooked our own beetroot. That's the problem with the youth of today, got it too easy.

    I personally don't think you've been sitting on it for long enough.

    Just because you have an (_!_) the size of Cambodia, it doesn't mean everyone else has.

    I used to be paranoid about scraping the last few drops of Branston Pickle out of the jar in case the knife shaved off tiny slivers of glass....

    LOL @ OAC,

    have you tried turning the lid the wrong way, it might lossen it up a bit.

    Are you calling Halibut deformed?

    Are you saying his (_!_) wouldn't cover a pickle jar?

    Halibut - OA's insulting you...

    Ok, if your (_!_)is so perfect, how come you can't get the lid off your beetroot with it then? Eh? Answer me that...

    Well this certainly gives a new meaning to the words, 'ring tone'

    Shouldn't you be getting the lid off your beetroot?

    LOL That sounds like a euphemism now

    DQ's jar opening tip... the reason you can't open it is because of the vacuum inside the jar SOOO get a bottle opener and gently lever the side of the lid until you hear the 'popping' sound TA DAAAAAAA jar will open easily :D

    That won't help, cos this jar has a dyson in it

    But then I'll have to leave my chair to go to the kitchen, and that is something I simply am not prepared to do
