Ray White, Esq., you ain't got nuffin' on this one

Take the C from BEECROFT REAL ESTATE, move it along seven spaces, and voila!, you get BEER OF TREACLE STATE, which sounds much nicer.

Stay tuned for more hardhitting cultural commentary from Lexicon Harlot & Friends.

Am I a terrible person to point out that you actually produce BEER OF TREACLE STATE?

Presumably the beer of a treacle state would be emblazoned with sticky national symbols...

Heaven forfend! I did make a whopping great typo. Thank you ever so for spotting it, Jen-meister (and you all flu-addled). I amend forthwith. "Beer of treacle estate" indeed.

P.S.: you are not a terrible person; you are an excellent person, with very nice hair, to boot.

Or TREACLE OF BEER STATE. It all depends on how you look at it. Obviously, both are delicious on their own, though I hold my doubts about the combination of them.

Ah, treacle! The joys of a slice of bread, smeared with butter and treacle! I think I'll have one right now!

Someone (Charles Firth, in fact) once told me that the best argument for vegetarianism is that guinness and bananas provide all essential nutrients. Bananas and treacle are closely enough related for me to here propound the beer & treacle diet.

Apparently meat contains proteins that are essential to childhood brain development; they don't naturally occur anywhere else. But if you're sure about this... okay!

I'll make sure to rear my first born on a strict diet of treacle and Guinness.

FYI: the infants' version of the Beer & Treacle Diet contains beer, treacle and mother's milk (although if the mother is already on the Beer & Treacle Diet, then plain old mother's milk will suffice).

As for going meatless: I haven't looked into sustainable kiddie-feeding practices, but have managed increasingly obnoxious vegetarianism for over 13 years (with only minor brain deterioration). My understanding is that all the necessary amino acids (to make up complete protein requirements) are easy enough to scrounge from plants. There's been a lot of hoopla lately about omega-3 fatty acids - most easily obtained by eating the fat fishies of the sea - but also from flaxseed, canola oil and walnuts. Nothing like a spoonful of canola oil for dessert. B14 is the thing it's hard to get from any natural source other than the beasties. It's in animals' milk and eggs, but if you're not up for them, you're condemned to fortified breakfast cereal or supplements.

Best if I stop there. Further discussion may lead to high-pitched tirade about the rights of pigs.
