LOL That was a good one! It seems however that Jason has a clean beak, good on ya mate! Sorry to go slightly off-topic on a tangent but my dad did work at a chocolate factory shortly when he was young and I remember he telling me that they said the workers could eat as much as they wanted, however it turned out that they calculated that the new workers soon got tired and would stop, but not my dad so they asked him to stop  ::rofl::
Of course, the latest study shows that 40 grams of dark chocolate (but not any other kind) can help the blood pressure for up to 8 hours.

Back to the main topic, poor Hans, the Roost Air outfit have gotten even more greedy than last time this happend. Of course it could only help his diet ::rofl::

Well, Jason is a chocolate manufacturer after all, so probably he just is the only one who can eat a cake without making a mess.

Hahaha! I heard a similar story from a guy working at a chocolate factory, obviously that's a common policy. But apparently no one ever managed to eat as much as your dad there!  ;D I wonder if they have the same policy in breweries!!  ::thinking::

I'm sure that they only had the noblest intention and were concerned about Hans' health!!

A friend of mine works at the Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream factory here in VT. All employees are allowed 2 pints a day. Since she doesn't eat all that much ice cream, she has a freezer full of it and gives it to her friends....

Wow, talk about job benefits, I've never heard of that as a practice before, but then again I've never worked at an icecream factory, heck we don't even have that brand here to the best of my knowledge.

I would probably get tired of it after a week or so....

Now, if it was a beer brewery with similar benefits . .  ;) ;D ::drinking:: ::whistle::

There's a Brew Pub in the next town over from where I live that had a fire in the kitchen a couple of weeks ago. They had only been open 6 months but were doing a great deal of business. Well the Fire Dept. did such a good job in stopping the fire (they should be back open by Christmas) that they are coming out with two new brews.... Smoked Porter and Fire Engine Red Ale.

Ok I stand corrected, we do have one, heck we even have one all-Ben&Jerry's icecream bar in Copenhagen too: http://www.benjerry.dk/Danmark/

I guess I just never looked much at icecream. It's been years since I last ate it apart from at my mom's 65th two weeks ago.

Btw Stef, after looking at the strip again and remembering the past instances of cake-delivery then you might be right about Jason taking a piece but just being better at eating without getting messy, as opposed to the chicks (I remember the former post where they were fighting over a former cake :D).

Hahaha, basic food group? No I didn't know that. I eat quality danish dark chocolate daily inbetween my two main meals, that works just fine for me, if I want ice I can step outside and scrape it off the car :D

Hmm, good idea, maybe I should go past an airport and taste some Cardinal-ice  ::rofl:: (both SoccerMom and PiperGirl both said in the chat this morning that they've seen tons of Cardinals recently and they both instantly though of me every time, now they can think of Cardinals when speaking of icecreamt  ::rofl::)
