Congratulations to Jedward for winning Eurovision*

Guess what it is my second daily in only a few days... You go 4 weeks without a Giggles Daily and then two show up! It's like Formula 1 cars in the Red Bull Pit Box thanks to Jenson... Joke! It was an easy mistake to make... Sorry Lou... I'm covering for Lou who is helping out a sick friend and so I better be nice and not mean to Jenson... Jenson is lovely don't you think?

I mean look...

Lovely Jenson

Sadly there wasn't any F1 news today so there aren't any links really...

So I thought I better bake something up myself... So here it is... The Sidepodpie

Sidepodpie

I made it today it was chicken, bacon and leek inside. It was very nice :)

Hope you have a great day, if you are worried about a lack of links I have this site for you called google.com. It's really good, you can type anything in and stuff comes up.

If you are bored though in a post Eurovision funk... Why not join us at 4pm for 1983's Giggles Radio show! It will be great to see you.

* If Jedward did win this joke won't work as well.

    Evening all

    I missed Eurovision? Oh blast! How'd I do that?

    How are we all?

    nice daily alex, but what is that pie? i mean, i see the words, but what are they etched into?

    it looks like toast.

    Ok, I'll admit I did initially think it was very tasty cheese on toast :)

    If you're missing the rerun of Jools on BBC2, catch the iPlayer. I've not watched in a while because it has been a bit pants but this is a good one.

    nice daily alex, but what is that pie? i mean, i see the words, but what are they etched into?

    Etched? There is a pastry layer on the top of the pie. And the words are extra pastry on top. The perspective issue was hard to deal with an I had to post my daily in the brief time while the pie was cooling right from the oven so we didn't burn ourselves.... But here now is a cut-away shot: so you can see inside the pie.

    http://t.co/Wr2ZmLn

    This is the bottom left corner of pie. And you should be able to make out the P and the I.

  • Maverick15/05/2011 at 08:21

    I fear I may have spoiled Mr C with shop-bought pies so he wouldn't recognise a proper homemade one if it hit him int he face :)

    ah... yes... about a year ago I made a pie that I knew I was going to photograph (it was about a bet about home made pastry) I used a pirex dish so I could get the side in. But I didn't think about it until I was about doing this until I was about to put the pie in the oven. So the choice of a white dish on a white background might have foxed him!

    am with you now. i have never seen a pie like this one, but clearly it is a pie :)

    You see the part you've missed out on is the part where the pie like the ones you are used to are made in the first place. They are made in a dish that gives them the shape at the bottom. Then taken out. Which is nice and everything but the idea of taking out this massive pie out of the dish in one piece was a bit daunting!

    (and actually this pie isn't really a true pie because it doesn't really have any sides or bottom, this is like the kind of pie you'd get in a pub, I don't really think of them as true pies... but if Shepard's pie and cottage pies can be pies and they have potato on the top then this must be a pie if it has something on the top... see?)

    I wasnt sure if i should say anything, but even to this day i get a tiny ping of disapoint when i get a pie and it has no bottom or sides :D

    My local now does pies which they say has that much pastry, but it is all on the top

    That pie looks amazing though, i definatly wouldnt be disappointed!

    Can you send one of those instead of a cake? :)

    So imagine... Instead of a lattice... that it was solid pastry... and then the writing was like bits of lattice laid on top of the solid pastry.

    Something that struck me last night - why do some countries persist on singing in their own language? To me, if you want to win it's best if you sing in English. The Serbian lady had a decent tune but it made no sense because it was in her own langauge...

    You punch a rider in the face and you only get a €5000 fine? Madness

    Thats a bit of an exageration

    How so? Stoner got annoyed Di Puniet was going too slow, so he rode up to him and lamped him one.

    Fact is, if he wasn't a star he wouldn't have got away with a fine.

  • Nick15/05/2011 at 12:49

    I think he got the penalty because he's not a works rider and the stars have expressed their dislike of him.

    BBC just mentioned rossi getting nothing for taking out stoner, also the guy stoner punched got nothing either

    Ah. You SHOULD watch the junior races, then. :)

    SIC penalty was borderline for me. While I do agree that it would be less likely if any of the aliens did it, SIC shouldn't have put himself in that position. World feed commentary also said that had they not collided, SIC wouldn't have made the corner.

    The only reason they collided is because Pedrosa sat up mid corner. Had he tried to stay down they both would have made it around. SIC had the corner I reckon.

    It's Charlie Cox and Steve Parrish. And I am inclined to agree with them TBH. I think all of this is similar to the discussions about the F1 photographers - the works riders are afraid this quick young kid on a used bike is gonna nick podiums and race wins off them, so they complain he's rough and dangerous. The sport is lacking in manufacturers and teams so it has to pander to the big boys, hence the slap on the wrist for Stoner and the harsh penalty for SIC.

    They should've had a 1-2-3-4, with Lorenzo 6th. Instead, they get a 1-2 with Lorenzo 4th. Honda clearly have the quickest bike out there, but they have to be careful not to throw their title chances away.

    Interesting. From MotoMatters re: SIC-LOR:

    And:

    "Not a racing incident. If SIC leaves space for PED, that's OK, he didn't he shut the door, crash inevitable. "

    I'd be keen to hear too. But it looked to me like a pass around the outside, then Pedrosa sat up mid corner. Then they touched. I think SIC had the corner myself but he's been tarred with the dangerous rider brush by other riders, so it was assumed to be his fault.

    Why didn't Rossi get a similar penalty in Jerez?

  • Journeyer15/05/2011 at 14:13

    A very good question. And a very valid one too.

    Only race control can answer that.

  • Journeyer15/05/2011 at 14:15

    Well, a bit of good news for Pedrosa: the collarbone break was a clean break, so he should be able to race at home in Barcelona in 3 weeks. F1 schedule helping him out there too.

    But I'm guessing those mid-race fatigue issues may now come back for Dani.

    it's been an on-and-off rumor for some time now. although i'm not sure if the certification they're going for is F1-grade. that said, i don't see it getting in unless one of the European races (Valencia? Budapest?) is dropped).
