Mmm, scrummy!

I don't mind most English slang I come across, but I just can't get behind this one.



It's supposed to be scrumptious+yummy (I think) but that is really not how it sounds. Might as well call it skeezy pizza or something.


Also, for some reasons lately I've been thinking about how the UK really doesn't have many vending machines. In the US they're sitting all over the place, but most of the time here you have to park someplace, go into the store, etc. The only place I've really seen vending machines are inside one or two of the buildings at work. No quick soda fixes here! (Probably better that way really.)

Well, I think scrummy IS a pretty accurate description of Domino's pizza... here or there.

Love this post Amanda! Got a good chuckle out of it!

That word makes it sound yucky!

That does sound pretty nasty. Makes me think of a wet dirty sponge.

Perhaps they need drive-up vending machines. Like those drive-up ATM's...

That's odd about the vending machine. I agree with the pizza, doesn't sound good.

Domino's puts the crummy in scrummy.

This reminds me of the old SNL skit where they come up with a slogan for a candy bar that keeps repeating It's NUT very good.
