Run completely out of bahs, moos, oinks...
Chris: Yes indeed, so now we're having to rely on calcified doodahs for sustenance
Is that... are those... I mean, do people eat...
Chris: Calcified rock Ellie: geology

crystals looking like carrots and other plants - oh, what you did see! I have to look in my dictionary what 'garroted' does mean.
Chris: I think garrotting was the official method of execution in a number of countries
So Bill is now missing bits Chris.
Chris: He never used them anyway..
What on earth is this?
Chris: Your new diet

Geology never ceases to amaze and confuse, Chris
Chris: Agreed Lisl. Go into BRLSI in Queen Square and you'll see a lot of this sort of thing exhibited
Is this an artists exhibition ... using nature's processes to gain a personal advantage. Some would say that that is dubious. Nah the artist spotted a gap ... never give a tourist sucker an even chance.
Chris: Quite - make anything look intriguing, put a fancy price on it and the middle class suckers will pay a fortune..
Fine sculptures Tiff, almost meat like.
Chris: A bit gristly Chad

Ah... I thought that it was some sort of fried food delicacies loved by our Glaswegian friends - deep fried fat or something. Fascinating to see that these are mineral-based.
Chris: Do they eat deep fried Mars Bars on those barren Scottish hells you visit or are they Glasgow cuisine?
Crikey at first glance it looked like a trendy offal display
Chris: No it isn't that Martin
How strange. They are obviously crystals but they are hanging like meat at a butchers. Is this another Bath oddity?
Chris: A geology exhbition
Initially I was wondering what part fo the anotmy these came from, I'm pleased to read what they actually are, nature produces some strange things.
Chris: Yes it certainly does Brian
