Cereal Fraudsters

There's a lot going wrong with this once-great nation in 2010: the apparently total inability to manage the cold white stuff that kept falling from the sky a few days ago, the bunch of fuckwits who are supposed to be running the country, the debts that will never, ever go away.

However, CF's rage this morning was directed at a more personal, a more domestic, issue.

Would you just take a look at that fucking breakfast cereal in the picture? Bear in mind that the bag hasn't even been opened yet.

Yeah, yeah, contents may "settle in transit" but for fuck's sake, where are the rest of the fucking 'contents'?

This bloody box of ridiculously expensive, oh-so-good for-you breakfast cereal is half fucking empty.

Thieving bastards.

They sell it by weight, don't they?

Just eat oats, bacon, fruit and museli even.

Forget that processed crap. Why eat something that's has been harvested, processed to buggery, so tasteless that they add salt, sugar, vitamins and other synthetics to then serve it in a plastic bag at a stupid price?

And I bet you didn't get a toy with it either!

That's not a bug, it's a feature.

I would imagine there's more nourishment in the packaging than in the contents.

Much better idea:

Yer can't go far wrong with a good, old-fashioned, English, Bacon & Egg sarnie .. lathered in Heinz Tomato Ketchup .. Luvverly ... Lol

Museli is like the stuff found at the bottom of a Rabbit hutch .. Lol

It's weight, dear, weight. Not volume. Calm down. Besides, what's wrong with porridge?

"contents may 'settle in transit'"

Look at the bottom of the bag - it will all be crushed flakes.

As OBO pointed out they sell by weight.

Porridge is the answer CF, or a rotation of porridge, bacon and tomato sandwich (no butter), scrambled eggs and my favourite - a slice of cold off-the-bone ham with a fried egg on top.

Oh, if you soak your Scotts porridge oats in water overnight then they'll be ready in 3 minutes in the morning. Don't microwave them, more bother than it's worth having to open and close the door to stir.

Make your own bread too in one of those machines. Breakfast then tastes wonderful. ;)

My favourite is the way the packet has a picture of the cereal in a bowl along with milk and a spoon. And underneath that they put 'serving suggestion'. Twats.)

As Capt Haddock said - it's Sunday, where's the bacon?

Look on the bright side. Only half as much of the crap to eat before you can get the black pudd, bacon, eggs mushrooms and fried bread on the go.

You can eat the box afterwards. It probably tates better and is less processed.
