The Cunning Plan

"So how tall is Ian?" asked Tom.

"In feet and inches, ...or digestive biscuits?" said I jokingly

"Digestive biscuits" replied Tom, calling my bluff.

Not one to have my bluff called I looked at the biscuits in the cupboard and formulated a cunning plan. It was a very cunning plan....a very cunning plan quote Blackadder:-

Gareth and Tom working on their cunning plan (You choose who's who)

Blackadder: Baldrick, I have a very, very, very cunning plan.
Baldrick: Is it as cunning as a fox what used to be Professor of Cunning at Oxford University but has moved on, and is now working for the UN at the High Commission of International Cunning Planning?
Blackadder: Yes, it is.
Baldrick: Mm... That's cunning!

The plan went like this.

(a) Stack packs of biscuits up against the door.
(b) Tom calls Ian to the office.
(c) Gareth takes photo.
(d) Run like hell.

Got Him!
7 Packets of Rich Tea

So he's 7 packets of Rich Tea Tall, or 147 Rich Tea Biscuits in total.
(Reader:- But that doesn't tell us how tall he is in digestive biscuits - which was the actual question!)

Well using the well known european biscuit conversion table this equates 92.3 Standard Digestives or 90.12 Chocolate Digestives.
