Consider the following seasonal treats:
- Hot cross buns
- Mince pies
- Christmas pudding
- Christmas cake (fruit)
What do they all have in common? Let me tell you. Sultanas. Or some sort of currant / raisin-type thing.
It seems to me that people who don’t like these sorts of dried fruits are often excluded in our modern-day society, just as they have been for generations. And it happens most of all around the time of major Christian festivals.
Take my wife as an example. She doesn’t like dried fruits, so a packet of hot cross buns takes six days to get through in this household as it is only I who eat them. I only eat one a day you see. I put them in the toaster and then complain that it is difficult to get them out.
Anyway, that’s as far as my argument goes. Feel free to discuss.
PS. Yes, it is the worst blog-post title ever in the history of the Cartoon Blog. It is a cry for help. Most people won’t understand it, but I don’t care. Someone somewhere will enjoy it, and if it makes them happy for three or four seconds it will have been worth it. Anyone who can think of a better raisin / currant / sultana pun can have five points.
