"Today your order will be delivered by Jesus in the Cabbage van"

You don't get the son of god delivering groceries for just any supermarket.

I saw my first ever Ocado van today (don't live in an Ocado delivery area). Was delighted to see it was a cabbage van and thought of this thread and couldn't stop giggling.

Kofi in the Onion van; times are tough for the former Sec Gen of the UN.

no jesus but a couple of his disciples in the same cabbage van...Peter and Thomas

I've only just found this thread and am very disappointed I've never had Jesus. however, looking back through my texts, I did have Joseph in a courgette van in June. I've also had Anita in Cabbage, and Keith in Lemon, Kevin in Onion, Lionel in Apple and (pleasingly alliterative) Lee in Lemon. Disciples I have had include Paul in courgette, and John in Cabbage. Last week I had Christian (!) in Strawberry.

A further resurrection....

Jesus has not appeared to me, which frankly isn't a huge surprise, however, a few weeks ago a new challenger to Jesus appeared in our area when my friend had a visit from...

Mac in the Apple Van!

Omg I am so excited - I have just had a text from Ocado and today I have Jesus coming to me!!! In a courgette van this time though

Just had to resurrect this thread for that. No pun intended

Oooooh we're having "hank in his onion van" today

Sat in a queue of traffic this morning, I was next to a Ocado van.

O the drivers door it said 'Constance Cabbage Van' sponsored by Ms L surname of Timsbury.

How cool is that! grin

I think it's because they are The Way.

<want to lick a chocolate orange van, like a grown up version of Charlie and the Chocolate factory. Not so much the cabbage van I keep getting, mind. Unless it's got cream and bacon in it...>

Chocolate orange van sounds awesome. Well Terry very helpful got pwet through in the rain and not as hot as Damien but heyho (spookily heyho comes up as Bethleham on predictive text)! What is it with Ocado and their religious connections?

SoupDragon Thu 26-Apr-12 17:50:45

What a shame Terry wasn't in the chocolate orange van. [sigh]

Charleymouse Thu 26-Apr-12 16:55:26

Terry in the onion van for me today!

SoupDragon Thu 26-Apr-12 11:33:43

Very disappointed to have had Billy in the Onion van this week. I mean he was on time and polite and everything but [meh].

Innocent is good. Did you corrupt him?

takeonboard Thu 26-Apr-12 11:23:56

I just looked back through my Ocado texts and I seem to always have the Cabbage or Courgette van and I have never had Jesus sadly!

Charleymouse Thu 26-Apr-12 11:15:15

MandaHugNKiss he did offer me dried figs, but I sent them back. Not sure what to take from that though.

Well waiting for todays text for tonights delivery. Will update later.

Well, just got today's txt: I have the cabbage van again... and again, it lacks Jesus. <sigh> I'm expecting Lawrence. Larry. It's not even close!

Hmm, charley is it only me seeing some kind of irony in the antichrist Damien failing to deliver figs? After all, wasn't it the fig leaves Adam and Eve chose to cover up with once Damien's Dad had a word in Eve's shell like?

Maybe Damien has seen all the glory Jesus is getting here at Ocado and wants a bit of that action for himself?

And it stands to reason he was quite hot (hell puns aside) as his Dad was a very beautiful angel indeed.

Christopher in Lemon Van rang last night to see if I wanted my 10-11pm order delivery (It's free then) at 9.30, as he was in the area, bless him, so I got an early night in bed with a book. Hope he got to finish early as well!

Charleymouse Fri 20-Apr-12 22:30:40

Phew Armageddon averted.

Damien eventually arrived half an hour past delivery slot with my shopping nicely sorted in colour coded bags minus my fresh figs.
Not at all satanic looking quite hot in fact
Think will try to order again to see if we can reach the giddy heights of the son of God.

well, yes, it's an anagram of Satan V (the previous four incarnations failed, clearly...)

Good luck charleymouse - could be it's on your shoulders to head off armaggedon!

Charleymouse Fri 20-Apr-12 19:36:53

Damien is running late as he has satnav failure OMG typing satnav predictive text tried to put in Satan. I am doomed aren't I?

charley Could be how it works - I only turned on my notifications for my last two deliveries so could very well have started out at the antichrist...

umleila Nepotism is alive and well. Always. And considering the last gig he gave his son, I reckon delivery driver is a massive step up. Only a slight chance of being crucified, I should imagine.

As in Innocent delivered my groceries blushblush
