They go good together

I once saw a man on one of those "wacky/amazing people" shows who had written the preamble of the United States Constitution on the back of a postage stamp. He did this, he said, because he suffered from insomnia and could think of nothing else to occupy his time. That kind of productive insanity I admire. My brain is dysfunctional, too, but all it does is fill me with the desire to do nothing but drink Guinness and eat Jaffa Cakes.

What? No FTOYPAAH? What the hell's a jaffa cake?

I'd venture that it's something which you eat whilst drinking Guinness and feeling uninspired and killing off brain cells (or, you know, drinking Bitter Brains instead).

Jaffa Cakes are spongey biscuit on the bottom, tangy orange in the centre and dark chocolate on top. They are really good. But not generally used by hardened drinkers as 'soakage'.
Chris, wasn't that guy (the stamp fella) on 'That's Incredible' or one of those shows?

FTYPAAH: "Biscuit" in the case of Elimare's description, is probably better described as a wee pancake (about two inches in diameter).

Elimare -- It was either that show or "Amazing People" (assuming that "Amazing People" was an actual show and not just a figment of my imagination. I find it scary/hilarious that you actually knew who I was talking about.
