Cobra skin plates?

    I'm waiting for Homeland to come on and put the TV on Channel 4. Some programme of super yachts is on, featuring boats worth millions of pounds. Some guy who sells fittings for those boats was showing plates which edges was made of cobra skin! Cobra skin? Even if I had millions, billions even, I cannot think that would ever make my wish list.

    I suppose if you are spending £20 million ( I had to rewind to check, but the figure is correct ) on a new interior design, a set of cobra skin plates probably seems essential.

    I can't imagine wanting to eat from one. Maybe those people don't actually eat?

    OMG. I couldn't even touch the plate let alone eat from it. I can't even look at an image of a snake. Horrors.

    Can you put them in the dishwasher?

    Snakes don't like being in dishwashers. Please don't experiment with this idea.

    They aren't soap and water snakes.

    I couldn't afford a bottle of cava to launch mine never mind a boat to launch. Bloody teaching heads.

    Did you hear how much the stewards were paid? Can't remember the exact figures but I think the head steward was on about 40k tax free and the assistant about 30K - to make beds - ironing the sheet and pillow cases on the bed.
    Ever think we are in the wrong job!
