  1. Decide that you are going to get rich out of selling dates.
  2. No! Better! Get rich by having your mates sell your dates and clipping the ticket.
  3. Take a dozen or so date scones.
  4. Ignore all the dates sitting around that are not in scones.
  5. Ignore the fact that the scones are national treasures and heirlooms.
  6. Bring over your mates from next door.
  7. Let them to rip up your scones.
  8. However many dates they find (you have no idea how many are there) take a 1% cut.
  9. Once your mates have left with the dates, try to clean up the mess.
  10. Live happily ever after.

    That sums it up.

    Love the likeness to the swedish chef. Classic!

    This is totally unbelievable. Brownlee would never sit around and watch food being destroyed in front of him.

    Nice except for one nagging issue…dates may actually turn out to be raisins/choc chips/inedible pieces of rock but otherwise bon appetit !

  5. 11. Extract dates from scones by sticking your grubby finger in and pulling them out. Offer said scones to tourists.

    The chef’s hat is down over his eyes – deliberately I’m sure. He can’t see whether they are dates or raisins or what, but to crack an awful old joke –
    “Call him Muscatel – that boy sure wants raisin'”!

    captcha – sees – what is this predetermination or whatever?

    Brownlee is a familiar caricature of one of Gen-Y’s favourite villians – from a Captain Planet fansite:

    Profile: A villain of pig-like proportions, Hoggish Greedly lives to devour the Earth’s natural resources. His love for overconsumption extends to every aspect of his behavior and is particularly evident in his “sloppy” eating habits.

    Greedly goes after precious gems and minerals, noble forests, endangered species – whatever will satiate his enormous appetite for any rare, nonrenewable resource. Wherever he strikes, Greedly leaves waste and destruction in his wake.

    Hoggish Greedly’s repugnant, hog-like looks are accentuated by his snuffling manner and snorting interjections. Greedly is well aware of his piggish mannerisms. In fact, he delights in using his grossness to frighten and disgust his opponents. His clothes may vary from episode to episode but his preference for a pig motif – whether in clothes, accessories or machinery – remains consistent.

      Brownlee fits the bill for that description BUT its far simpler, as in the picuted swedish chef he is a MUPPET.
