Something For The Weekend


Now does this low fat cheese really melt under the grill? Who cares... the ad's great. And mice prefer peanut butter, soap and biscuit wrappers...

But then maybe this low fat cheese tastes of soap???

Lulu LaBonne said...

Aargh ... now I have to go and make a cheese and peanut butter toastie.

Mice loove soap so I reckon Macy's on the button about lowlow

savannah said...

now that was a very inventive commercial, sugar! xoxoxo

eroswings said...

Good Lord! The mice keep getting smarter! God help us all when they start to take over the world!

Now that's a mighty mouse!

nick said...

If the cheese is so tasty, why hasn't some human already scoffed it? If I was the mouse, I'd be mighty suspicious.

TechnoBabe said...

I don't know, the mouse started to take a taste but maybe the mouse didn't really like the cheese.

jekandhyd said...

If you ate the mouse would it taste like cheese ... or chicken?

xl said...

I had some toasty cheese-like stuff today on a pizza!

Madame DeFarge said...

But it really needs brown sauce to go on top. Just not right without it. Might be time for a midnight snack.

Pat said...

I thought of you tonight. Are you in mourning for Phil?

mapstew said...

I can't be doin' with all that low fat shit!

Real cheese. Real butter!

Just don't eat the whole pack!

A happy Sunday to you.

Hi Scarlet,

Great commercial!

Unfortunately, I have alergies to products like cheese, so I too will be avoiding the traps.

MJ said...

The perfect snack food for my Cheese Room.

Dave said...

In my current condition I can't stand the thought of cheese, so you're welcome to it.

Scarlet Blue said...

Macy: I had low fat cheese on toast [not this brand] the other day. It turned to putty on toast. It tasted odd... possibly there were traces of soap?

Lulu: Guess what I had for tea last night... though it was the full fat variety!

Savvy: I know! It's fab and nice to post an ad that I like for a change! Not sure if I want to buy the product but wouldn't mind getting a pet mouse.

Mr Swings: Mice are like the Borg, they're forever adapting!

Nick: True. And why has someone chucked out all their furniture and collected mouse traps instead? And where was the grill?

Technobabe: Maybe the cheese wasn't soapy enough?

Mr Jekand: Ha ha! This particular mouse would taste of pixels.

Mr XL: British pizza cheese has the consistency of melted rubber and tastes like soggy string.

Madame D: I have been known to add fish fingers. Is this as wrong as I think it is?

Pat: Yes!!!! I am gutted! Such a wrong decision.

Mr Maps: I agree. Eat moderately and then you can have the real thing. And still have pudding.

Mr U: Yep, I have to be a little bit careful with cheese - too much dairy and I break out in adolescent spots. Not pretty.

MJ: Next time you look there will be an orgy of mice playing merry in the shag pile.

Dave: Apologies. Chicken soup?

Jimmy Bastard said...

I'm with the DeFarge woman on this one. Outsiders.. brown of course, red cheddar, and lashings of brown sauce. On occasion I might even throw on the odd onion slice just to be a divil.

Scarlet Blue said...

Mr Jimmy: You're not tempted by my fish finger surprise then? I can add salad cream.
Sx

Gadjo Dilo said...

Wow, great ad, I'd never seen it before. I'm not sure Andrei Tarkovsky could've done any better (if he'd been asked to make a cheese advert, that is).

KAZ said...

Ecellent.
But I do hope "No mice were harmed in the making of this film".

Clyde said...

Low fat cheese
Fish finger delight
Sweets, get another diet
Geez, fish fingers---reconstituted fish---nothing like a good kipper.
Cheese---the real thing please
Oh, and mice will go for nuts and grain before anything else---try an almond on your trap

KEVIN JACKSON said...

I'm so pleased the mouse made it - had me worried for a while.
I dropped in and out of ITV's Collision last week and was 'upset' that it was all the fault of the poor wasp.
I like wasps and they get a really bad breaks.

Sarah said...

Yeah I love this ad. Daniel Craig of the mouse world!
Processed cheese...yuk

zIggI said...

how do they get the lid off the peanut butter jar?

Kevin Musgrove said...

Low fat cheese - pfagh!

I can't eat much of the proper stuff these days -- I could make myself well sick with a decent cheese on toast ): A good slab of bread, wholegrain mustard and a grating of a Leigh Toaster. Possibly with some chili pickled onions and black olives.

Damn, I'm hungry now.

Kerrie said...

I do love this advert but I am sorry cheese does have to have fat and lots of it.
On a different matter, I was thinking of you yesterday and I am sorry about the loss of Tuffers on your viewing pleasure.On close inspection he could be alright for a quick round ,but Brian still needs his eyes moving slightly.
Did you enjoy the group dance? Matthew Cutler was pant wettingly good I felt.

Ana said...

Scarlet -- Among the many reasons I admire you: you can post a commercial and still get 25 comments -- including mine, which now makes for 26. And I'm with Mapstew... real everything.

Roses said...

I prefer the real thing and lots of it, with red onions and picallily on brown. Yumm...

Damn. I wish I hadn't had dinner now.

Oh, cream, butter, brown sugar and full fat coke. Don't be giving me that fake shit.

The safe stuff tastes disgusting and I'm not convinced it's any better for you.

Scarlet Blue said...

Gadj: Did Andrei Tarkovsky work for Disney?

Kaz: Apparently it's a CGI mouse... but I think they deserve the same sort of protection and respect.

Mr Clyde: Have you got some spare nuts?

Mr Kevin: I watched Collision!!! I knew it was the wasp as soon as the camera honed in on it during the first episode [cos why else would it do that?].
I was also going to write a post about Collision... and I still might... so I will stop writing about it now.

Sarah: Yep, after my experiences with low fat cheese the other day I doubt I'll be trying it again! I've being trying to describe the taste of it... so far all I've come up with is: 'funny'.

ZIggI: I think the mouse waits for a helpful human to drop bits of peanut butter on the carpet.

Kev: There are two food items that make me dribble: Cheese on toast and the other is bacon butties. I'm hungry now.

Kerrie: Craig and Len are definitely in my bad books. I nearly threw something at the telly, I was so cross. There is no way that Ricky Groves is better than Tuffers.

Ana: SHHUUUUUSSSSSSH!
It's a mystery!
*Makes note to write something proper*

Roses: I still think it's funny that that sell Diet Coke in chip shops!

mago said...

So the message is, as I understand:
It's an ersatz-stoff good for mice, that comes in the kind of bag stucco is sold. Maybe the similiarities go even farther.

Donn said...

What's Life without cheese?
LONGER!

Those traps never catch mice anyway..if they do, it's a fluke.
Whenever mice decide to move in I always use "sticky" traps..
far more humane.

In lieu of the poor little bastard slowly succumbing to asphyxiation with a nasty bar around it's little lungs, or a tiny broken leg,
once stranded on the glue, you can quickly put an end to it's misery with one swift thunderous blow from a shovel, screwdriver, or hammer.

What?
Mice are gross..
they really are practically blind and they find their way around your house by sniffing their way along walls where they have left a trail of urine.
That's just wrong on so many levels.

Or, you could always let "nature" take it's course and allow your cat to terrorize and torment it to death?

Chairman Bill said...

Gutted to discover you're not Belle du Jour after all?

Scarlet Blue said...

Mr Mags: Lets hope so - anything that is applied wet and hardens to a very dense solid, is obviously very useful.

Mr Coppens: Good heavens! Do you not like mice then?

Mr Chairman: So was I.

Right then folks, I'm going to be packing and stuff over the next couple of weeks so I will be a little bit sporadic with my blogging, but I will do my best.

Sx

xl said...

Best wishes on your move Miss Scarlet!

I hope you have a crew of Chippendale's-like guys to help you move. Maybe they can serve you cheese toast as well!

Scarlet Blue said...

Mr XL: The last time I moved somebody dropped the Smeg on his hand...
The previous sentence is badly constructed.
Sx

mago said...

I like mice ... I like all furry fluffy creatures. Birds too.

Good luck for the move!

Whirlochre said...

The great thing about this age of cgi is that you don't have to wonder how many identical white mice died during filming.

Computer tech guys, however...

BEAST said...

Miss Scarlet , I laugh in the face of low fat cheeses and spreads , I am with Mr Mapstew on this and Miss Defarge and Jimmy on the brown sauce.....and its got to be WHITE BREAD mwha ha HA AH HA HA.
Whats the surprise apart from the fish fingers......I bet its cheese and onion crisps

Borah said...

I saw The Witches (Roald Dahl) again the other day... and I think mice are definitely very fashionable.

And hell yeah, if this cheese can make me run as quick as these mice, I'll buy it!

EmmaK said...

oh that's the cutest advert ever!! you have just made me come over all cheesy. I have to say that low fat anything is never as good as full fat. Sod's law or summat

Kevin Musgrove said...

I'm made up: I made Scarlet dribble.

Have a good packing!

Scarlet Blue said...

Mr Mags: Me too... stroking furry things is comforting.

Mr Whirly: We don't even really need real celebrities any more, do we?!

Mr Beastie: BROWN BREAD. How many times... white bread will make a giant pulp in your stomach that will take 1,000 years to digest... TRUE.

Borah: This cheese may give you the wrong type of runs...

Kev: Every time, Kev.

Sx

Still packing my boxes!

mutleythedog said...

May I return to the topic of fish fingers? I hope you enjoy them with cheese whizz - as I do. Also primula spread, and kraft triangles... or dairylea...

Emerson Marks said...

I enjoy an extra mature cheddar, I'm not happy 'til my eyes are sweating.

Chairman Bill said...

Just thought I'd pop over to wish you a happy 24th Nov.

Donn said...

Where you at biznatch?

That's Merkin urban street slang for;
"My Darling Scarls, when, pray tell, shall you be safely ensconced in your delightful new abode for I so desperately desire to breach your foyer, and gaze, once more, upon your visage, to bask in thy countenance?"

Kate Lord Brown said...

He's like Stuart Little on steroids.

mago said...

You slipped on some lowlow and fell into this giant heap of mousetraps?

Mitzi said...

I remember as a small child playing marbles in the street when Denise, our next door neighbour came up to me and asked if I'd like to see a little white mouse "Just pull on this string here and a little white mouse will pop out" so I did and indeed a little white mouse did pop out, but it was dead and covered in blood.

Roses said...

Happy packing!

Okay, so I'm trying to be helpful and encouraging and failing miserably.

I hate packing and hate moving.

But good luck honey. Look forward to your first post from your new abode.

nick said...

Hi Scarlet, how's it all going? Hope the moving palaver is working out okay.

mago said...

Hallooo ... Mausi!

Scarlet Blue said...

Hello!
...still moving.... the problem has been getting this old place ready for tenants whilst arranging removal... flipping nightmare...
I am mummified in packing tape...
SX

Liam said...

Haven't heard or seen you in a while.

mago said...

Boxes ... and mummified Scarlet in one of them. The moving crew took it personal when their lack of umph was mentioned ... Container to China?

Hold out!

RESCUE Scarlet!

mago said...

I do not give up and come here nearly every day in hope of you having posted something new - a small "piep" maybe. But no.

(wv: kiste (!!!))

BEAST said...

NEWS UPDATE :

Miss Scarlet has taken up residence in the middle of a field and waiting to be connected to the interwebs . Please talk amongst yourselves for a while and Miss Scarlet will be scrubbed down , buffed up and back amongst us as soon as possible :-)

mago said...

A field? I always thought about her as a wild flower.

MJ said...

Mind the cow patties, Miss Scarlet.

Roses said...

Bored now.

You can come back and entertain us.

I'll let you.

I miss you!

mago said...

One of Poe's first poems that did not become very famous - and rightly so for various reasons - has the line:
Clasp a rare and radiant maiden, whom the angels named Scarlet? /
Quoth the raven, "Nevermore".

Ach, Ach - und nochmal ACH!
(Schiller, Räuber, 4,13)

Scarlet Blue said...

I AM RECONNECTED!!!!!!
Sx

mutleythedog said...

What to - cough... did I miss something , I think I was having a snoozle...

Donn said...

I missed you :)

Mu Tai Dong said...

Wrapper matters in the cheese compendium!"

xl said...

Yay! Although I think Miss Scarlet is always well-connected.

BEAST said...

Blimey!!!!

nick said...

Woo-hay!!

Scarlet Blue said...

Yey!!!!
S'pose I'd better think about something to post?
Sx

MJ said...

69!

Dave said...

Oy!! How can someone who hasn't blogged for 6 months (well, it seems like that) complain because I'm taking a fortnight off to recover from the illness that nearly killed me last month?

Scarlet Blue said...

MJ: Always the best position.

Dave: I have been away for a month. I expect you to be ready and loaded for my return.
Sx

mago said...

"loaded as a man can be ..."
The late Mink deVille on one of his less known albums.

That is very nice to have you back on the blog!

Roses said...

Just so you know, party round mine on the 21st. Be there, or be square!

Good to have you back.

Scarlet Blue said...

Hello Mr Mags and Roses - bloody good to be back!
