Mr. Grossman couldn’t resist it. And who can blame him? A tin of Spotted Dick (a traditional English steamed dessert containing currants, typically served either with custard or butter and brown sugar) is an hilarious thing, at least if you’re an American. And so he bought it and stuck it in our pantry, where it causes us to titter each time we see it, months later.
Brits are unfazed by a sweet called Dick, spotted or otherwise. But everyone else who comes to our home for dinner gets offered some. I guess we’re easily amused. “Want some spotted dick?”
