    What if your friend is a friar?

  2. Algernon | 4:06 am |

    At 180 degrees C fan will do nicely.

  3. Algernon | 4:07 am |

    They’re baked not fried

  4. Droll not Troll | 4:19 am |

    After baking a friend, don’t forget to send flours.

  5. Droll not Troll | 4:22 am |

    Wouldn’t want a half-baked friend, would you?

  6. Droll not Troll | 4:28 am |

    Before baking, a good friend should be gently folded, not beaten.

  7. Running Comment | 4:42 am |

    A near-baking experience.

  8. Eggrish | 5:24 am |

    Hey baked friend, want to bake some pot brownies?

  9. Frank Burns | 6:16 am |

    That Bake Friend guy was really scary in “Ghostbusters”.

  10. Marum | 9:30 am |

    I see the Engrish.

    It’s Hell.

    Should read Baking Fiends.

    The California version:

    Q: How many California baking friends does it take to make a magic mushroom pizza?

    A: Three. One to bake the pie and two more to share the EXPERIENCE.

    (Adapted from an old “How many Californians does it take to screw in a lightbulb) joke….Sorry Engrish baking friends…Sleepy Pete’s grey matter could come up with no better today. Even after two large cups of caffiene!)

  12. Running Comment | 10:54 am |

    Slightly off-topic (?): when the first Alien film came out in Sweden in 1979, the tag line (“In Space, no one can hear you scream”) on the posters came with a typo (should have been “I rymden kan ingen höra dig skrika”, but became “I rymden kan ingen höra deg skrika”). Rendered back into English, this becomes:

    “In Space, no one can hear dough scream”.

  13. Marum | 11:31 am |

    @Pete 1046. Like the left wing feminist’s joke – at one of our Unis.

    Q. How many Australian men does it take to screw in a light-bulb.

    A. All of them. (because most Australian me will screw anything)

  14. Marum | 11:33 am |

    EDIT: Freudian slip? (I hope not) me = men

  15. Marum | 11:34 am |

    HMM! Like the magic food which stops Australian women fu—-g.

    Wedding cake.

  16. Marum | 11:42 am |

    Baking Fiends turns them into Gargoyles.

    Which you can then mount on the corners of your building, to stop demons perching there. (Must have worked, look at all the Gargoyles on the old buildings. And they seem to be, happier buildings than most of the new ones)

  17. Peter Chan | 12:05 pm |

    Don’t forget to bring you worst friend along . . .

  18. Peter Chan | 12:08 pm |

    oops, typo edit . . . you = your

  19. zankhana | 1:49 pm |

    Lovely with some fava beans and a nice chianti

  20. zankhana | 1:50 pm |

    Best with some fava beans and a nice chianti

  21. James | 1:57 pm |

    If you’re not good at baking you get roasted.

  22. Classic Steve | 2:53 pm |

    I don’t like the Michelin Man’s baked goods. Too rubbery,

  23. Frank Burns | 3:08 pm |

    They just got a Cease and Desist letter from the Stay-puff marshmallow man’ lawyers.

  24. Marum | 3:44 pm |

    Being a part Aboriginal guy I should almost be able to get away with this one – we’ll see:

    He was a sushi Chef, but he had to give it up. The Japanese didn’t want no Nigiri maki their Hamachi.

  25. Marum | 3:46 pm |

    Yo see? He was a black man….Oh, never mind.

  26. Pete | 4:54 pm |

    @Marum 11:31 and 11:34,

    Mate, that must be one REEAALLYY BIG light bulb for all those blokes and their babes to fit inside there (if ALL of them screw in the light bulb!)

    As for wedding cake…yeah it has that affect in many MANY countries around the globe!

  27. Pete | 5:00 pm |


    OK well that was one attempt at Pidgin Japlish…I guess….
    ; – )

  28. Pete | 5:02 pm |

    Frank Burns @ 3:08,

    Won’t make any diff.
    No threat by an American lawyer would ever stop a Chinese Knock-Off maker worth his salt…or worth his oyster sauce, rather.

  29. Pete | 5:05 pm |

    @Zankhana 1:50,

    I guess if they bake bread, some Foul Mudamas might go well with it.
    (Except I like the original Arabic pronunciation which is much closer to:
    “Fool ’em, Dumbass”!)

  30. Marum | 5:28 pm |

    . @Pete 1700. ‘Twas the best I could do, with the brain I have at my disposal🍿

  31. Droll not Troll | 7:28 pm |

    @Marum | 5:28 pm: You need to stop getting your brains from the disposal, mate! Even the ones from Woolworths would be fresher.
    /but probably not.

  32. Marum | 8:50 pm |

    @DnT. 1928. These are OK. They are ex army. So they have obviously, never ever, been used.

    Ultimate oxymoron = Military Intelligence. (or t least a contradiction in terms)

  33. Droll not Troll | 10:34 pm |

    @Marum: Oxymoron: Someone who thinks they will pass their hand quickly through the flame of a welding torch without damage.

  34. Droll not Troll | 10:38 pm |

    @Marum: i just realised! You must have been born just before WWII ended.

  35. Marum | 11:26 pm |

    @DnT above.
    Good deduction Mr Holmes.
    YUP! 1944. Beware the ides of March.

    I can still vaguely remember Ration Cards.

  36. Garst | 11:59 pm |

    Hope your friend likes getting baked

  37. DrLex | 6:21 am |

    It’s time to learn how to cross the streams.

  38. iLock | 5:28 am |

    Woah dude, that was totally an experience. I’m Ssooooooo baked right now
