I have just received my Bucks FHS magazine and an interesting little snippet popped out of the pages.
This will be useful for curbing your eating excesses at Christmas.

Apparently you are breaking the law by eating Mince Pies at Christmas, as that 'lovely man', Oliver Cromwell banned the eating of them as he considered them 'excesses'.
This law has never been repealed.!!
So if you see your other half, eating all the pies. Phone the police and have them arrested for their own good.
