What good are Twiglets to me? I don't even have an opposable thumb.............

Scientists in Britain have found a break-through for people who like Twiglets, but can't stand Marmite.

Professor Dingle from the University of Emmerdale said: 'For years Marmite has been sold with the tag-line, you either love it, or you hate it? But where does this leave people who like Twiglets? It is a conundrum we all face. It is the same in Politics. What if you like the policies, but you can't stand the person?'

Professor Dingle's Assistant, Beaker, a slightly high strung individual with the unfortunate combination of a massive Adam's Apple, and ginger hair dropped a Beaker full of liquid on the floor, and ran around with a permanent look of fear on his face.

'Ignore him' said Dingle 'He does that all the time. My Colleague Dr Bunsen keeps him on, but only because he is his Son, but don't tell anyone, that is a secret. Anyway, there is not actually any such thing as a Twiglet Conundrum. It is just an advert. Personally, we all prefer the Ronseal Advert. I did my fence the other day. It is now water-proof, but I keep it inside the house, just to be on the safe side'
