Yeah, well your loss. I did a fondue to die for, we would have been dipping things in other things all night and having more fun than Sooty and Sweep. Who knows where the evening may have ended but as Mr Spanky-Idon`t-need-anyonline-buddies decided to go it alone, I had to have the fondue party on my own. It was still good though.

I'm allergic to cheese.



I'm not really.
I'm just trying to make myself better about missing the fondue.

I've used premiums successfully in my business, as advertising, they do serve a purpose other than just catering to people looking for handouts. I once bought 1,000 key chains with a leather tab on them and my logo burned into it. That "gimme" was made by a company in Arkansas and they returned me lot of trade for the little that I had invested.

Maybe Case (for example) could partner with NRA to make a small special edition knife that would serve both promotional needs. Incidentally, WR Case knives are made in Pennsylvania.

Anyway, most of the freebies that we get for advertising is crap and just fills up drawers in the kitchen.

That is hilarious coming from you. Aren't you the person who represents all that is correct and good ? I am the troll yet it is you who attacks anything you believe to be ignorant such as some ones membership in the NRA?

Hypocritical trolling I would suggest is the worst trolling.

I have no idea what a fondue is other than Bruce Forsythe used to give a fondue set away every week.

And a cuddly toy.

Big vat of melted cheese.

You skewer things like bread/toast and stick it in the cheese before eating.

TBH it sounds pretty cool to me but apparently the 70s killed it for everyone.
