Thanks to a hot tip from an eagle eyed climbing acquaintance (possibly of this parish also?), I know own a vintage promotional jar that is bigger than my head and to my surprise, it fits on my mantelpiece (getting crowded now and I’ve currently retired the mug to make space)

Great stuff.

BTW, the one to the right of the figurine, is it what I think it is?

I saw a film last night where, in a serious context, a character said “If you’re thinking what I think you’re thinking, don’t even think about it”, which sounded like a line that had accidentally been dropped in from a farcical comedy.

It would be more disturbing if he made his own marmite flavoured lube. The jars, simply a recording of this activity.

Yes it would, displaying an ever increasing dependence on the stuff. The next size up is industrial.

Thought so. 

In reply to dread-i:

You are aware of the Lynx Africa Marmite deodorant, yes? Which does have a trace odour of Marmite...
