How about a croissant-style pastry, with a honeyed centre, served slightly warmed on a delicate saucer and accompanied by a hot cup of the finest strong tea, to hand to the nearest, crossest-looking aunt in the room at family gatherings? They could come in packs of three, in case said aunt has a hungry husband in tow, so that she doesnt have to be made more cross by having to sacrifice her single pastry to his ever-growing belly. (The third one could be for the cat to lick and then disdainfully refuse). Cross aunts everywhere would be smiling. And more uncles would be happier, too. Because the aunts would not be so cross, and the uncles would get their carbs, the old carbuncles.

       What do you get if you cross an aunt with a pastry ?   

       A woolly jumper.

       Theodor Adorno had some batty English aunts, of the kind immortalised by P G Wodehouse and occasionally reanimated by [MaxwellBuchanan]. Those might hunt in packs of three, though I think two are more usual.
