Pudding Bomb

  (+6, -5)
(+6, -5)
  [vote for,
against]

A bomb filled with instant pudding mix. The bomb is airlifted up, and detonated inside a sizable cloud over enemy territory. The primary blast will heat the pudding/cloud mixture to boiling temperatures. The new weighty mixture will rain down upon the earth and be cooled by the descent.

Enemy forces will be covered in pudding, and slightly bemused.

       If you made it sticky toffee pudding, then you could also slow their progress dramatically. If they tried to eat their way out, they'd all have to lie down and rest their stomachs before long. A winner!

       Loving it! It could also be used to disrupt watersupplies if dropped in lakes and rivers.

       Pudding is the New Custard.

       How can you have any pudding if you don't eat your meat!?   

       Pudding (US) = Custard (UK)

       So what do you call non-custard-based puddings in the US? (Apart from anathema, of course)
spinglespangle, Mar 08 2006
  

       In the UK, we put custard on puddings.
Except steak and kidney puddings, of course.
[EDIT] Or black pudding. But that goes without saying.

       Steam and sponge puddings are not common over here, so they're known by their full names. Pudding as a synonym for dessert, doesn't apply here either.
DrCurry, Mar 08 2006
  

       I see. I think of pudding as something dense, homemade and essentially wintry. Dessert is something posh served in a restaurant, preferably in a tower shape, with a basket of caramelised sugar strands on top. Now that would be a rubbish bomb.

       and after exploding would be followed up by "The Hungry Fly" bomb... as millions of voracious, custard eating, horse flies descended to savage the gathered masses below. Can it please be tested on Jeremy Clarkson?

       don't mention spotted dick or we'll be here forever.

       [zeno] not since he shot that guy in Texas.

       Euw!

       In America, pudding is a sweet, goopy snack that can stand alone as a dessert, while custard is regarded as a cream filling, and not widely eaten as an idividual dish.   

       Anyway, I want it to rain pudding.
