Is there an item on this list that says "Pope's tupperware," or am I misreading that?

"proper"

I already have the Pope's tupperware, that was on a previous card.

But you can't just go out and buy proper Tupperware, can you? Or are you using the word in the generic sense, like we say "kleenex" for "disposable handkerchiefs" over here?

Yeah, I thought you had to like go to Tupperware parties and things. Which is why it really kind of made sense for him to just take the Pope's.

You used to be able to get a limited line of Tupperware at Target, but (1) they aren't doing that anymore and (2) I don't know if they even have Target in the UK. (No great loss if they don't, of course.)

No, it's not proper Tupperware, just proper tupperware, which in this instance means "plastic boxes actually designed for reusable food storage rather than putting things in old takeaway containers and washing them". Improper Tupperware.

So it's the second option, then. I was just wondering. There are probably Tupperware consultants in the UK but I never got the impression it was really big there for some reason. It's cool, we use the word the same way here. Sometimes a brand name just sort of inserts itself into the language like that.

To be honest I don't even know whether we have branded Tupperware tupperware here. We don't have Targets by the way, though WalMart did buy out a supermarket chain here; it won't turn into WalMart, though, because there's a lack of land to build on and also the company doesn't have the required level of political influence in this country.

the one that says "beef or children" is the one that worries me ... and the the fact that you appear to have bread and tobacco twice. Of course, it doesn't say pope's tupperware, it says proper typewriter.

In the end I went for beef. You really don't know what additives are in children these days, they're full of E-numbers.
