62. Wiltshire Farm Foods
If you’re lucky enough to be sat at home of an afternoon perusing such TV fare as Countdown and The (wonderful) Chase you’d be hard-pressed not to stumble across once proud British comedian Ronnie Corbett peddling the virtues of Wiltshire Farm Foods. The action takes place in your typical middle England Suburban Cul-De-Sac; He’s shadowed by a perpetually grinning deliveryman, (Brian). Some razor-sharp editing (not seen since the likes of Taffin) then puts us indoors. Brain unpacks the goodies and The Corbster engages in dialogue with a somewhat overacting old dear who reminds me of Thora Hird’s younger sister. The denouement sees RC swapping wise-cracks and ‘size-ist’ gags with Brian. (The late Ronnie Barker would have approved!)

Actually I’m rather fond of the Ronnie Corbett who once appeared in ‘The Two Ronnies’. Being a child of the Seventies they were staple Saturday night viewing for me: Fork Handles (sic); The Phantom Raspberry Blower of Old London Town; The Mastermind Spoof; Too many very clever word-play gags to mention; The Corbster in a v-neck Golf Jumper cracking gags about the Producers wife… ahhhh
Apologies for the inane ramblings. Let’s get back to what brought us here. This quite wonderful Marrow. It features a lovely loose illustration depicting a glorious country landscape which just makes my heart yearn for Spring.
It’s rare a trade mug evokes such emotion in me.
Contact details are on the vessel. Their website has some mouth-watering treats on the menu. I don’t think even think you need to be in your mid-forties to order from them!
It’s goodnight from me. And it’s goodnight from him.
