I can have another you in a minute

Troy: Millions upon millions upon millions! The cards. The stock! The clothes! The toothpaste! The guy was on the level! And you blew it! A man walks into your life who is the kindest, most polite, honest, trustworthy, incredibly rich guy you have ever met in your life!! And what do you do?! 
Eve: Have him committed...
- Blast from the Past

Dominos is moving on and moving up the hill, after it was cruelly snubbed when it tried to colonise Honor Oak Park last year.

BC reader Tyrwhitt Michael sent us this list of 60 locations the pizza giants are scouting at the moment. Honor Oak doesn't feature, although Forest Hill (and Blackheath) do. Because the truth of the matter is, replacing them is so easy. HOP, everything you own in the pizza box to the left please.

Cracking news. Love a bit of Texas BBQ.

Speaking of pizza...I've heard that the new cafe being built on Hilly Fields will have a wood fired or stone oven...

Pete said...

Really Kolp? That's exciting news if true as I love pizza and live next to vicars hill.

OMG there are soooo many different pizza leaflets that come through my door every day! I didn't know this area had such a pizza appetite!

Together we will fight the evil of fast food in Brockley. After we have priced out the blacks.

Wow, Parsley I hope that's a joke in really poor taste. Otherwise, it's extremely offensive to pretty much everyone. In fact even if it's a joke it's pretty offensive.

I am surprised Parsley's comment was even allowed to be posted, I hope it is deleted. We should be getting rid of racists like you.

I think it was a crass and inept attempt at satire rathter than out and out racism in the Frankie Boyle style. Still bone headed and clumsy at best...and wrong.

Somehow I don't think Parsley is a card-carrying racist and that their post was more of a comment on local attitudes and dog-whistling.

Good news is no news said...

There is a child on Harefield Road who is thinking about buying a bag of crisps. If they do, in a quarter of an hour or so they will be opening the bag. You could blog about both the process of deliberation, will they, won't they, buy the crisps. And then if they do, cover the opening. Let face it, if you did, it would be more interesting than 90% of this week's posts.

Anon 16.04 - I'm sure you're on the right lines there. However all they have managed to do is make themselves look like an utter pillock. If they wanted to make a thought-provoking comment they probably should have put a bit more thought into it themselves...

I saw Parsley eating a peanut butter sandwich the other day. A racist wouldn't touch the stuff.

Boring!!!

What are you, 12? I'm sorry there haven't been more car chases and explosions to report. And not a single invasion of transforming robots.

Parsley's satire is spot on. Think Jonathan Swift telling people to eat their babies.

Brockley Nick said...

Parsley's post was obviously satire. But "spot on"? OK then, just explain, in non-satirical terms, the point they were trying to make and provide some evidence of the "dog whistling" being satirised please.

Because until their hilarious comment "satirising" the complaints, there wasn't a single comment actually complaining.

I would like to point out I am not a racist.

Why all my servants are black.

I presume this list is by postcode area name so Forest Hill = SE23 which includes HOP.

So basically it's just a list of most districts in London (and towns around the UK) regardless of demographic.

Pretty much. Dominos are bringing fare back to British tables and I, for one, welcome it.
