Oh, I would have voted for "Absolutely friggin' useless" myself  ;D
I'd much rather eat the quiche than the skeleton or skull though. ;)

Finally, common sense tells you it's a pie. Why would a dark show like Knightmare use a cherry cake to represent energy?
Well, why then would a dark show like Knightmare use a pie to represent energy when they had a much "darker" walking figure and much better (and darker, I suppose) face?

"Common sense" tells you they shouldn't use a pie, a cake, a tart, quiche, or any such delectable, be they ne'er so delicious! In case they're thinking about a life force icon for a new KM, I'd also suggest no life force flowers, fairies, dolls, catflaps, shoe-boxes, carrots and suchlike. Perhaps a face that slowly broke away to reveal a cool grinning skull might be a good idea?

I agree with the rest of your thoughts, GrandDizzy. But I challenge you to find but one argument to persuade me it isn't a quiche. ;)

Aw, I wouldn't let Festus eat you Debz. In any case, he prefers to eat life force quiches (cooked in Mildread's cauldron, of course). ;)

Heh heh heh thank you! :D  
But here, have some Rennies for dear old Festus, that quiche looks like it could cause some damage! And what with the state of Mildread's cauldron these days...tut-tut! :o He'd need a cast-iron stomach if he was planning to make it through the week!

I don't know why they changed the "face" lifeforce. It was absolutely perfect.

Oh, actually I do know why. Cos whenever designers are given a job they always try and change as much as possible, even things that don't need changing. Bloody designers.

I'm a designer, by the way.

Ooooh, I couldn't agree more, dearie. Mr. G. and I, well we tried phoning the Health and Safety people from the call box by the Level One clue room. I said to them how her cauldron was a health hazard and all, but they wouldn't listen, you see. They said I was making it up, that I was some sort of hoax caller putting on a silly high pitch female voice. Then they heard Festus barking- well, I had tried telling him to shurrup, dearie, but you know what he's like- and they're going to send the Animal Health people round because I haven't got a license for him. I'm so upset and all, dearie, I just don't know what I'm going to do. :(

Oh no, the flaming cheek of it!>:(
Well you have my sympathy, but my advice to you is to invite them in and allow Festus to personally introduce himself. One quick "hello" from him will allow them to make up their mind pretty sharpish, as to whether you need a license for him or not! Just make sure that you buy him a nice bone for his trouble! ;D

They did? Well in my day they did too but times they are a-changing Missy and we have gotta go right along with them or be dragged along kicking and screaming!

...Thanks for tuning into Debz_g's agony aunt slot, be sure to tune in tomorrow when I will be discussing other equally strange subjects... :-/
