    How do you define your 'last rolo'

    Lets say I open a packet of Rolos.

    I eat the first from one end - that then makes the rolo at the opposite end the 'last rolo'

    But what if I don't eat all the rolos, but open the opposite end and take the afore mentioned 'last rolo' out - is that still the 'last rolo' ?

    Or, should the correct definition of 'last rolo' be the very 'last rolo' left not consumed?!?

    Sorry to be philosophical so early.

    Re: How do you define your 'last rolo'

    I think your first definition simply covers 'the rolo from the opposite end of the pack' rather than the last one.

    Considered in the context of the adverts which ask you if you would give anyone your last rolo, the correct definition has to be the last remaining rolo from a packet, wherever it was in fact situated - the issue being not its original location but whether in fact you can be self-denying enough to deprive yourself of it and give it to another... Giving someone the rolo from the opposite end of the pack when you still have rolos left in the middle of the packet which you can continue to enjoy is clearly much less significant than sacrificing the last nugget of chocolate coated pleasure.

    Sounds like drunken talk to me! Was somebody (other than me!) on the "pop" last night?

    It was stella's fault - she told me she loved me. She just seduced me, used me - then left me (along with the carrot chunks)

    Re: How do you define your 'last rolo'

    When it comes to chocolate, the chances of me giving away my first, last or anywhere in between chocolate is about as likely as my legs spiralling off for a quick limbo exercise on Pluto at 2am on the morning of the day Prince Charles marries Ben Affleck in front of a crowd of adoring lesser crested chameleons

    If the number of Rolos in a packet is 'x', then the last Rolo would be

    (x-(x-1))

    I think...

    Re: How do you define your 'last rolo'

    Yes, the "last rolo" is the single rolo remaining (from a single packet), once all of the other preceeding rolos have been removed for consumption.

    If the "last rolo" was classed as the last one in the sequence of the original packet, and you emptied the rolos into another container (eg. bowl) you would have no way of knowing which was the "last rolo" as they would be mixed up.

    So there is a slight possibility then? Any glimmer of hope is optimism for some

    Oh by all means, I think it would be most ungenerous (woot, new word !) of me to conclusively say no

    Just read, what the hell is ignoble?

    Adjective
    ignoble

    Not noble; plebian; common.
    Not honorable.

    Ahhhhhhhhh, we should have a random dictionary words thread!

    Re: How do you define your 'last rolo'

    OK, lets take this a step too far - what if I have *2* packets of rolos - do I have 1 last rolo, or two? If the answer is just one, how far apart do my packets of rolos need to be before they cease to influence one another?
