Why do a lot of people seem to rave about Nando's?

My friends think I'm a freak because I very rarely eat Subway or Nando's; as far I can tell it's just, not especially good quality, grilled chicken that has been marinated in peri-peri sauce. Am I missing something here?

I heard someone refer to Bradford as 'Bradders' last week. It's these little things that drive you over the edge.

I have been reading this thread for many years now, but it was only at the start of this year that finally got taken to a Nandos by someone younger who is an habitue and couldn't believe I'd never been. I actually thought it was acceptable. It's basically fast food at double the price, but almost double the quality of McDonalds etc. I quite enjoyed the Brazilian music playing or whatever it was, and the chicken and fries were tasty. I've experienced much worse ambiences and food in branches of Wetherspoons at a similar price.

Weird. I've never heard anyone refer to it by any colloquialism other than Bradistan. Must have been a youth, the sort of person who uses Snapchat and says "lad" as an exclamation in real life.

Weirdest one I've heard is that apparently the J24-J26 area is known locally as Cleckhuddersfax. No idea if it's bollocks, but it's what someone from Kippax told me and you Wessie folk are strange.

The person using "Subbers" was a bald and portly salesman in his late 30s, so I guess that kind of twattery is par for the course.

It's a posh kid thing, isn't it, to abbreviate things that are cold and corporate into a matey kind of nick-name? I'm not sure if it's because they're so fond of branded and expensive products and services that they feel the need to declare that affection any time it comes up, or if it's a lazy txtspk kind of thing, or if it's just because slang really has gotten that shit because of set reality TV programs and the resulting celebs (seewatididthur) being totes trendies who set the lev's props. Portmanteaus are the ones that usually get me more riled up though. If you've ever read a Cosmo or Heat or some other magazine that should only be used as an emergency sanitary towel, then you'll know what I mean.

I've personally heard some posh student girls call Sainsbury's "Saino's", money shortened to "muns", and "I'm a complete and total bellend and people like me have had a cultural impact only because there's so many other bell-creases such as myself wandering about spending money on things that remind me of me/that I want to be" shortened to "hi my name's Laura".

Is spending Wednesday night on .gs really your idea of being a well-rounded and productive member of society?

I don't know mate, I'm not posh so I don't know what Reginald Saxby-Lambert and his trophy wife were calling their daughters 20 years ago. But as it happens, one of the poshest girls I ever knew was named Laura.

One of the sexiest, too. She did have a bit of a nannas mouth, but she also had an arse that would make a black girl jealous, with Goldeneye 'crush-the-boat-captain' thights. Seeing as posh girls like to sex gentlemen beneath their 'status', I am passing this information on happily. High morals, low standards it seems with these people.

I'm going to admit that I only said that because I didn't have any other comeback. I actually think that browsing .gs is an endeavour that anyone should be proud of. I also think it's quite funny that in the 30 or so minutes since I posted that, the posting rate has dropped completely.

I fucked a posh bird called Laura not long back. She was studying archaeology, I made her horny by talking about Marxist theories, and when I said I'd love a coffee, she brought me a tray with a cafatiere and a little jug of milk.

It's the only time I've ever felt horribly used by a woman.

It just seems like a fairly standard white-girl name to me is all, neither particularly common or posh. FWIW I've known a lot of posh birds and none of them were called Laura, on the other hand a number of not-posh-but-not-chavs-either girls that were called Laura, hence my bias I suppose.

That's precisely why mate. A lad like me will never get to be with someone like her, I just got to be her "bit of rough" during the wild uni years.

She chuckled and rewarded my attempts at intellectual conversation in a thick northern accent like a dog that had just successfully performed a sit followed by a roll over. I was entertainment to her.

I'm not bitter. That's just life isn't it, old bean.

It was an 18 year old big ginger lass from 'Bradders' on the bus back from Leeds who said it, who was trying unsuccessfully to get a gormless sounding 20 something lad to fuck her. They had both been out on a works night from their retard employment scheme and were complaining about the drinks prices in terrible Leeds bars. She suggested Bradders was much cheaper and also mentioned she was meeting her good mates (including 'both Sams') in Nandos the day after.

And I was listening to this long and drunk conversation with my missus who is called Laura and who isn't especially posh. We probably also sound dimwitted on the bus when we are drunk to be fair.

I've fucked two women called Laura. One was a fine art student with dreadlocks who said "yah" instead of yes. The other was a goth who called herself Lauz from a council estate who was a massive Hitler fan and got an enormous swastika tattoo.
The nazi was the far better fuck by far.

I tried Taco Bell today. The quesadilla was decent, not bland* but far from spectacular, but their Mexican fries were delicious; by far the best seasoning I've ever had on chips. More filling than other fast food joints and, especially considering this was in Barnsley, considerably less chavs as they'd all gone to the KFC next-door.

* If you're a vegetarian then you're only choice of filling is refried beans and that's one of the blandest things I've tasted in quite some time.

Wimpy is definitely still going but it originated in the US and is currently headquartered in Sef Efrica. Yes I just read the wiki. There are actual British fast food chains around though, we have Yo! Sushi, Wasabi, Tops Pizza, Southern Fried Chicken, Sam's Chicken, Morley's, Dixy Chicken... all classic English food.

There is a Wimpy's in Nottingham that is really good - and generally a pleasant experience every time I've been there. I sort of enjoy the fact their decor has stayed in the 90s and that it's relatively chav free given they prefer Maccas or BK.

This is where British cuisine is really at. The humble sarnie shop is utterly overlooked both in the media and popular discussion.

You get people who will go abroad and eat pig bollock shish kebabs, and come back saying how charming and rustic is all is, so cultural and authentic. Were the positions reversed they'd be eating a double spam and egg butty at a place called Goodfillers next to a bloke in a high vis jacket, but somehow they turn their nose up at that as though it's below them.

I once saw some bloke on a food programme waxing lyrical about authentic Neapolitan pizza fritta. What is pizza fritta, you might ask? It's deep-fried pizza.

Saveloy dips, scouse, stottie cakes with ham and pease pudding, singing hinnies, well-fired rolls with square sausage, chicken parmos, gala pie. Northern Britain does stodge better than anyone else.

Tried TGI Fridays for the first time today. The burger was nice for the first couple of bites, but then it became obvious how dry it was and how none of the other fillings added much in the way of flavour. Also, for some reason they make the waiters wear black tops and red suspender belts so they look like chippendales doing a firefighter strip routine, except instead of buff strippers it's scrawny students.

I had a burger from 'Spoons today and it seems they've jumped on the chip spice bandwagon. However, their 'special seasoning' tastes like your chips have had the dust and crumbs from a packet of Skips chucked on them.

Standard 'Spoons service, though. One order wrong and for the five bean chilli they could have at least stirred it so it wasn't so blatantly obvious it was microwaved.

It's the same stuff they season steaks with and was a staff secret long before it came on the menu.

Get a side of sour cream and some raw onions, they go great with the chips.

The five bean chilli is indeed microwaved and so is the rice. It all comes in flash frozen from the main warehouse. How did you think its cooked?
