So, of the opinion that cooking things was not going to happen this fine winter’s evening, we turned unto the Internet to send us food. Our preferred supplier of local internet foods at the moment is called SZS, and has a new item on the burger menu:

A rolo meal.

Now, as far as I’m concerned, a rolo looks like this:

A rolo and a half

Note that the rolo is not pictured alone. A final rolo contains an important cultural concept that is so sacrosanct, so deeply embedded into our culture, and so pedestalised that it can only be expressed by getting your own solid gold (and thus, inedible) last rolo for £79.99 + P&P.

But in the context of a burger menu, the concept of a rolo, singular, alone, possibly melting forlornly inside a toasted seseme seed bun, seems not to fit. So I want to know what the rolo is.

But, alas, I don’t want to spend £3.99 finding out. So I ordered the chicken burger instead.

  1. Wait, so if you buy a gold last rolo and serve it with other rolos, would that in fact make it The Last Rolo, enabling you to eat all of the other rolos? That might be worth the money over time, depending on your consumption 😛

  2. Ah, but the Last Rolo has to be given to someone dear to you, therefore assuming a relationship with two people in it (for the sake of making the maths easier) where they buy the rolos an equal amount of the time, you’ve only got a 50% chance of being the person who has the golden rolo, and can therefore gift that and eat the final chocolate one, after that you would have to wait until the Golden Rolo is yours. Rolos are apparently 30p a packet (Cite) and there are about 15 in a packet, meaning they are about 2p each. Therefore you would need to swap the golden Rolo for a Last Rolo 4,000 times before it became economical. Assuming the golden rolo changes hands each time.

    …. and now I’m late for work.

  3. Or it could just be a mistake, and it’s just a roll and chips.

    I’d almost be tempted to paypal you £3.99 just to find out.
