Thread Name: BS: Taking the Beef out of Boveril
Subject: RE: BS: Taking the Beef out of Boveril
Better not be. But I doubt it - the thing is, Bovril you mix up with water and make a drink, Marmite you spread on bread. Makes a rotten drink. There's an underlying logic to it...

Farewell to the beef that was once in our Bovril.
That we drank in the night for to cheer oursleves up
Now I wander distracted, for the beef's been extracted.
Farewell and adieu to the cow in a cup.
