FE Week challenged the twittersphere to come up with some fishy puns for this fabulous college story. Apprentices at the Dorset college took part in a 24 hour challenge to make the largest portion of fish and chips – ever.
42 pieces of coley, 100 kgs of potatoes and a massive tub of mushy peas went into presenting the gargantuan dish.
The challenge was comissioned by Sky TV’s Monster Munchies, a cookery programme hosted by Matt Dawson where size really does matter.
The story went far and wide and the nation’s favourite meal even made the nation’s favourite newspaper – The Sun! The ‘red topped’ tabloid, famous for its headline gags put FE Week in a ‘punny’ frame of mind, and we challenged loyal twitter followers to come up with a fish-tastic take on the college serving up a mega portion.
And the winner is… Lee Mark Davies (@leemarkdavies). Lee went on, and on… and on with the puns, but our favourite is: “If @FEweek were serious about fish it would cover schools not colleges…”
Lee wins an exclusive FE Week mug!
