From teletext;
No chav cake for Fry-up


At this week's filming of BBC2 quiz show QI host Stephen Fry revealed he'd never heard of famous bakery Greggs.

"What's that? What are you talking about?" he asked when panellist Jimmy Carr joked about its ad campaign.

Carr explained that Greggs is "a chav palace where they run out of the best cakes by 4.30 every day". Fry sighed: "You move in a different world, Jimmy."

Bless! Stephen should definately go there, the pasties taste scrumptious X-D

Jimmy also educated him about the Darwin Awards. Perhaps Jimmy is the one who knows everything . . .

I think of myself as someone who is filled with love, whose only purpose in life was to achieve love. - Stephen Fry

Greggs - famous ? omnipresent more like (there´s even one in High Wycombe, would you believe it!). The place always struck me as a "fast food bakery".... (in German, "fast" means "almost, nearly" - hence "fast food" = "almost food" - but not quite )... I don´t think Stephen has reason to regret not moving in the same world as JC X-D

But of course, one man´s Greggs pastie is another man´s Imperial Torte

He didn't know A-Ha were Norwegians. He said they were Swedish on "Guilty".

But the stuff SF doesn't know about is mostly slang stuff-- things not worthy to occupy his high-class mind.

That really surprised me too

But note that Stephen lives in Norfolk (99% countryside according to my map) and St James, Westminster (not quite your average Greggs target demographic area) so he may be simply miles from the nearest one

X-D That's hilarious!! I might start using that!

Ahh one day the only shops that will be left are Tesco, Starbucks and Greggs, I'm sure of it (Although I rather like Tesco, I don't admit it often though for the fear of being lynched)

...and not one of them I ever go in. I hope your prediction never comes true Phlizz. That would be a scary future.
