Two Men Almost Starved, Saved By Jaffa Cakes

 

Exhausted by the high winds and waves 40 feet high, two sailors almost died of cold and starvation after losing their spear gun, which nearly sent them crashing into oil tankers. They were almost asleep when two Dutch men came to their aid.

Bayliss, a former banker and entrepreneur from Dorset, and Turnbull, from Wilshire, left from Tenerife to raise money for cancer research with 50 days of reserves for their trip in hope of completing the task in 40 days.

They were almost out of food on the last week and were down to 1000 calories and burning off 7000. "It has been a fantastic adventure even though we did not beat any record," said Bayliss. 12 deceased cancer victims' names were written on their boat.

To Men Almost Starved Saved By Jaffa Cakes

by CPTJ

Thine eyes shine like watery mollusk
neath starry sky on ocean wide

Stomachs adift uttering unbearable moans

O, for the love of Jaffa Cakes we beg of you O God, Our Lord!

For Jaffa Cake doth saveth and when men doth eateth. MMhmm.

From Dorset to Tenerife The Men Almost staved arose upon the ocean's tempest
seeking fame and glory
O Lord, for the love of Jaffa
Please Unto Us bequeath us this most yummy of cakes.

To the men almost starved saved by Jaffa, this poem and slice of Jaffa I do dedicate.

jaffa cakes all of a sudden?

  Jaffa cakes are simply devine Grins At board  
 
Omg, Hamster you have never tasted the most wonderful orgasmic experience in this entire world, you poor thing, never tasted pure heaven on your tongue, full moon then half moon then just gone and have too, yes I tell you, have to have yet another one, until the whole box has gone.Phew, you have never lived as yet, never mind you have this blissful experience to come.
Not that I am addicted in any way to them of course. Does anyone have a Jaffa to spare? Even half of one.

  omg... this is bad!  
 
hamster... don't; you can do it, you can overcome the evil temptation!
my friend used to be a singapore airline airhostess and she'ld rather have the jaffa cake and suffocate in the gym (although they r low in fat) than not please her desire.
Avoid the temptaion... do not do evil and try them!

I live in Texas, and Kroger Signature stores around my city stock Jaffa Cakes ... never tried them though.

  oh man  
 
i've got a jaffa-junkie on one shoulder telling me to do it, and a dark angel trying to save me on the other..

too bad 'do evil' is my motto
if i don't make it out alive, dark you can hav my stereo :S

 
  by: hamstertube   02/19/2007 04:21 AM     
  Look them up on google  
 
They just look like chocolate covered cookies.....But hey from the responses ive heard I might go lookig for a pack.
 
  by: xufeelinlukyx   02/19/2007 07:26 PM

new flavours came out but they are not that good (according to jaffa fans).

@ hamster:lol!

Trust the Dutch guys having Jaffa Cakes, best muchie in the world when your stoned... (So I have been told) ;o)

  I love Jaffa Cakes  
 
Thing is, when I open a pack, I keep eating them until they are gone. I don't even do it consciously. I just look at the pack an hour later, and they are gone.

For those who dont know, its like a slightly stale sponge on top, with orange jelly and chocolate on bottom. Its obviously not stale sponge, but I can't think of how to describe it otherwise!

If you can't get them in USA, I think I might have just had a business idea...

No, no and no!
the IS is suffering from high obesity rates... we need to reduce that, not make it worse!
i knwo they are low in fat but still!
 
  by: DarkAngelJG     02/27/2007 03:14 AM     
  @DarkAngelJG  
 
They contain orange, and therefore are healthy. :p

Such is my logic.
 
  by: spearhead   02/27/2007 11:37 AM     
  @ spearhead  
 
lol!
ok, jaffa not normal orange!
*shakes head in disapproval*
ok, do you need a business partner?!
;P
 
  by: DarkAngelJG     02/27/2007 01:34 PM     
  @DarkAngelJG  
 
Sorry, but I've decided against it. The less I export, the more I get to eat!
 
  by: spearhead   02/27/2007 01:38 PM     
  @all  
 
see what i mean by saying they are evil... even spearhead fell for the temptation!
