This was an innovation challenge. Make a new sort of mobile fast food and flog it at a profit. A lot can be done with fast food. It could for example, be fast and as a football fan I'd like to see it priced so that buying burgers doesn't tally with the cost my season ticket.Anyway Adam's team innovated on meatballs going for the quality offal angle. The quality truly was awful. Adam who knows a marrow margin when he sees one bought cheap pork combined it with cheap pasta and sold it to Rangers fans as they walked to Tynecastle. Haven't they suffered enough? I asked losing the league to Celtic by a country mile, a points deduction and banned from Europe. Now they faced the replacement of their pre match pie by a rank ragu.Katy was chief architect of this strategy coldly calculating that drunken Scottish plebs would buy anything in Styrofoam. Scotland is pretty rankled at the moment; an alarmist Economist edition for example almost implied that we'd be only be left with enough oil to grease our chips and be left fighting each other for scraps of kelp if the nation voted for independence. Not that I am advocating that but I'm sorry, the same metro smugness was in evidence here.The other team actually had a Scot Laura and went down the quality route. They went for a scotpot with haggis and neeps which will sell all day at Grass market, a tourist spot so infamous that they almost lay Scottish Cheddar in traps to lure coach parties. Just incase the Scottish theme was lost on the tourists they dressed up in tartan and recreated the tartan revue shows of the 70's (I just about remember). Two of the girls reminded me of Fran and Anna, a hogmanay staple.Adams approach was to hog the money as the gloop cost 47p to make and retailed I think at under six quid As Lord sugar quipped "They don't pay that for a striker up there!".The good food won and Katy went. My view is that she was hoisted by her own football scarf and she brought Fulham fans into disrepute as rich metro west-enders who pay through the nose for fan food. As if! She really lost against Adam because Sugar loves a trader and Katy who in truth was a bit smug has one of those jobs product development/research which he doesn't quite get. Bye Kate and if I see you at the cottage I might sputter out some footie food economics in between mouthfuls of Adamburger. Performers: Tom cool decision maker who knows how to bring people in and when to subtly shut the up. May need to up volume a wee bit though.Plodders: Nick: I know his hair could be spotted over the lifting mists of Arthur's seat but where was his contribution.Please stop: Stephen who wanted to ramp the price of the rank ragu up to eight quid. Respect to you oh Mr PPP
A trackback is a method for Web authors to request notification when somebody links to one of their documents. This enables authors to keep track of who is linking, and so referring, to their articles. Some weblog software programs, such as Wordpress, Drupal and Movable Type, support automatic pingbacks where all the links in a published article can be pinged when the article is published. The term is used colloquially for any kind of linkback.
