Just As I Thought

… not with the pastry

On one of my favorite BBC series, “One Foot in the Grave,” the put-upon central character Victor seems to have a recurring nightmare. He’s often shown moaning in his sleep, speaking out loud, “he’s got the pastry!” “Not with the pastry!”
Well, now we know what Victor was moaning about:

STOUGHTON, Mass. — Police in Stoughton won’t press charges against an 8-year-old boy for tossing a cupcake at a passing pickup truck.

The driver wanted police to charge the boy with disorderly conduct. The man said he was driving with a baby in the truck on Easter Sunday.

The police chief joked he might have considered charges if the truck was hit by a heavier pastry — like a bear-claw or a day-old Twinkie.
