Sugar rush — 9 Comments

  1. Unfortunately, a lot of people are very stupid. The inheritors of Goebbells' legacy know this all too well and they play to it. With remarkable success. If I didn't despise them so much, I could almost admire the audacity.

    • What baffles me is the stupidity of people actually wishing a "sin tax" on themselves.  It's akin to a financial self-flagellation.  Do they seriously think all kids are obese [apart from their own of course]?  Do they seriously think it will make a difference?  As I said above, all that has to be done is to mention "children" and "health" in the same sentence and the Bovine will lap it up even if they themselves will suffer.  I despair sometimes.

      • Some people are into financial flagellation. They pay good money for it, too…

        And, yes, they do look at puppy fat and think the kid is obese. Twats.

    •  Is tonic a vital part of your diet?  Is it nutritionally sound or does it just contain empty calories?  I'd put it under lock and key if I were you.

      • The empty calorie meme is a triumph of lies over truth. There is  no such thing. It is a unit of energy. Either it is a unit of energy or it doesn't exist. You can't have an empty one.

        • I have just consumed the best part of a pack of Tesco's finest "Midget Gems" [I have run out of Mars Bars].  Surely they must be the ultimate example of empty calories?  Pure pleasure and zero essentials?  Yet the pack tells me I have consumed 344 kcal, so there has to be full calories in there somewhere.

          I'm waiting with trepidation for my waistline to explode into a 50" girth.

          Nothing has happened yet…….

          Still waiting……..

  2. I can't see the Greeks ever going for this 'sugar tax' baloney. Their cake shops are enough to give health fascists a heart attack just looking at what's on offer. Baclava dripping in honey and syrup, all manner of pastries that sit in a tray of syrup, fantastic cakes slathered in fruit and cream – the Greek ζαχαροπλαστείο is a temple at which sugar lovers gather to worship.

    Feast your eyes on the delights within…

    And funnily enough, there doesn't seem to be many fat Greeks around, really. A few, but not that many.
