Well, to be honest Kay, it tells me there's still some nice innocence left - and a sense of humour.

The survey was 125 seven year olds after all. :D

Reminds me of the WWII evacuee story about a London kid being asked if he'd ever seen chickens before:

'Yes - but only after they've been peeled.'

Come to think of it, I've known a few 7-year-old boys who would have considered it a great joke to list fish fingers as a type of fish...

Here in Gozo, a local farmer told me he had a group of school kids from Malta visit his farm and one of them wanted to know why when he saw the cow being milked that the milk wasn't chocolate or strawberry, as that's the only milk he got at home :roll:

haha shows that either the kids had a great sense of humour or their parents need to have a talk with them about where their food comes from!

Parts of several of them, probably - and in the case of some of the cheaper versions, I'm not sure I necessarily want to know which parts!

I know, but I'd rather not say. Polite company and all that.

Crabsticks - made out of... I won't say because I'm a laydee.

I don't think it's just the cheaper versions, Dave.

If you show young children "fish fingers" in a fish tank then they will start

to believe you that they actually are fish, or they will just be completely

confused, but agree with what is actually in front of them

floating/swimming around???!!!!!!!!! :)
