Topical Tuesday

Yes, it's back.

Almost Topical Tuesday (TM).

Our last post made us think about supermarkets. And no, we're not going to put a link in here. Just move your mouse and scroll about a bit.


Oh alright then. It's here.

You are a lazy poltroon - and we mean that in the nicest way possible.

Now supermarkets.

A recent study has revealed that in the UK, people throw away one third of the food they buy.

That's an average of course. We never waste anything at T4td Corp. All our scraps go to the office juniors whenever they've earned an eating day.

Whenever you deal with averages, you've got to remember that many people fall into groups at opposite extremes.

That must mean that there are some people who throw away all the food they buy. It could be that, presented with a lovely picture of delicious food on the packet, and finding a grey, congealed, cardboard-like substance inside, these people eat the packaging instead.

Where are we going with this?

Just here:

Is it a coincidence that the more people buy ready meals, the more they throw away?

Heck - what do you think those things are made of in the first place?

That's right! They want you to throw them away
so they pulverise them, cover the taste with chemicals and then sell them back to you.

Now that is what you call marketing.

So the next time you see 'buy one get one free' remember this thought:

There is no such thing as a free lunch -
but if there was, you'd probably have to throw it away.

Until tomorrow,
enjoy your Lasagna for one.
