A reader recipe by D.J Cat and Chooker
Alastair: Long-time reader and forum members D.J. Cat and Chooker have proven their devotion to The Rubber Chicken time and time again in a series of increasingly flattering and terrifying ways.
In this, their latest effort, they have achieved what we sceptics have long deemed impossible: summarised the entire website in pizza form. No longer must we settle for fleeting licks of the computer screen. If the haphazard miscellany of TRC had a definitive flavour, this is almost certainly it.

- “Cleanliness is far overrated. It involves washing. One of my t-shirts is regularly washed, and now is less black than before. And a part of the giant arse that Rik Mayall and Ade Edmunson are in is gone. This just so it can bend? No thank you.”
