T-Rex: Does anyone else think sticky date pudding is...
T-Rex: NOT STICKY ENOUGH?
T-Rex: Seriously, you can't even use it to join pieces of wood. Or hang wallpaper.
T-Rex: I thought it'd be, you know, STICKY.
T-Rex: But it's just a cake!!
Utahraptor: I feel your pain.
T-Rex: It's just like alphabet soup.
T-Rex: It's not even SORTED!

I was severely disappointed the first time I tried sticky date pudding. I assumed it was going to be gooey and genuinely sticky, like toffee or something. I've since learnt to like it, but honestly they should just call it date cake or something.
Where did the "sticky" even come from in the first place??
Maybe I should open a cafe and just put "sticky" in front of everything on the menu. Sticky fish and chips. Sticky schnitzel with sticky mash and sticky beans. Sticky scrambled eggs and toast!
"What's sticky about the scrambled eggs?"
"NOTHING! That's just a random non-indicative word I put in front of it!"
