The Syllabub of Terrors is based on that big obreption in the 19th century. This is known as the Syllabus of Errors and if you want to undermine authority you can start by going through each of the items and say 'NO'. If you say no, you will save yourself from being catechised, which can be painful.
I am looking for new items for the Syllabub of Terrors for the 21st century. Points will be awarded for those items which can scare the living daylights. As a taster, my first item or ingredient in this tasty confection is: mangle.
