Thanks to our readers once more for their response to our caption competition last week. Kudos to Luke Bray of Finsbury Park in London for unmasking the systematic outrage perpetrated on gingerbread folk, with this entry: "The US administration admitted that the CIA’s coffee breaks had gone a little too far."
Seldom do humble gingerbread rights activists, such as ourselves, get the opportunity to right such a wrong. That is, until the gods toss us a bone, as they did this week when an invitation dropped on Stop the Week’s desk to attend the IDDBA bakery exhibition in Houston, Texas, in June. Organisers have lined up no less than George Dubya Bush as a keynote speaker the former president who, you could not fail to recall, was accused of approving some prisoner hospitality that could, at best, be described as ’unwelcoming’. Justifably tagged the ’Show of shows’ or should that be ’show trial of show trials’? - Stop the Week is drawing up its placards and booking the flights. The Justice for Gingerbread campaign starts here.
