When I was knee high to a dolly tub or even a pigeon. My mother and father used to own a grocery shop. Every Monday morning the 'pop' man would deliver minerals every week. He used to deliver Dan-dock (Dandelion and Burdock) and Cola and Cream Soda and Lemonade and Orange... I think he was a frustrated comedian because he was always laughing and joking:
"Here lad. Which nineteen fifties pop group is still going to day?"
One merry morn the pop man kept giggling and laughing while he unloaded his wares. My mother asked him why he kept laughing?
"I've just been to this Chinese chippy and they gave me this order".
He puts on a Chinese accent:
"Me want Dan-dock (Dandelion and Burdock) lemonade, Dan-dock Orange, Dan-dock Coca Cola, Dan-dock Cream Soda..."
They thought that Dan-dock (the Lancashire name for Dandelion and Burdock) was the name of the company that made it!
Well it made me laugh any way!
