If that's what your brisket looks like, I hope I never have to eat at your place. LOL

on the subject of the deep-fried mars bar - Back in 1996 a friend and I (both of us being sweet-toothed lovers of chocolate and fried food) found a place that did them, and we decided to share one just to try it out.  Despite both of us loving fried food and sweet food, we couldn't even finish this thing, kept passing it back and forth trying to eat it.
That's 1 deep fried mars bar defeating two people who love fried food and mars bars.  Don't try it.

"Mars chocolate bars" and "beef" in the same sentence ... something odd about that. Like Rachel's beef-n-onion cake.

I actually do. Tongue I have a painting of them in my room.
 
They are pretty to look at, if, frankly, not really useful. Though they can be dangerous. I don't even know if such things are even popular in either Austrailia or the UK.

You are more likely to be killed by a plant in the UK than any animal or insect, forget Giant Hogweeds, these will kill you stone dead if eaten:
Every inch of this plant is fatally toxic - the flowers, leaves, stems, roots and seeds.

They're popular here in Australia. Despite the crashes.

Deep fried mars bars and other deep fried stuff like that is mostly confined to Scotland. Not the  UK in general. Nowhere here does them anyway.

@Dean Foxgloves are one of  my favourite wild flowers.

Anyone can make their own.
1. Unwrap a Mars bar.
2. Dip it in batter.
3. Fry in loads of oil.
4. Or in lard.
5. Serve.

And yet, it's a medicinal plant...
 
 
colchicum (a pink flower bulb growing in fall in cow pastures) can kill a cow if eaten by them...
