Just looked for a photo of the Pillsbury Doughboy to reply with and found this. Hilarious.

Used to frequent a “wacky” restaurant called Aunt Fannys in Inverness. The toilets were covered in pages from vintage comic books and they had lots of tat all over the walls. They had this cocktail they would make for people’s birthdays. You basically lit it on fire and then drank it as quickly as possible through a straw which would MELT whilst drinking it. Not good. But it was a great wee restaurant.
