On the labelling of food...

So, how hungry are you?

1) Not very
2) Quite peckish
3) Absolutely starving
4) I could eat a horse

See how overnight one's use of language can change.

I took some parmesan out of the fridge today.  At a quick glance I thought the label said "Made using unpleasant milk" which I thought was mildly appropriate given that not everyone likes parmesan.  A closer inspection revealed it was "unpasteurised" which was nowhere near so entertaining.


  1. The word "unpleasant" passed your eyes.

  2. Rog, you've done it again. I'd just got apple crumble out of my head and now I've got "Ernie I'll be happy if it comes up to my chest" right in there.

    I quite like the term 'raw milk' which seems a bit edgy and exciting. But then I lead a quiet life.
