How to Break Up With Someone Over Easter.

Get them one of these. Or both.*


*Full disclosure: there is a jar of Marmite in my house. I don’t eat it, we just exchange baleful glares. I also don’t mind chocolate with chilis, if it’s done right. I wouldn’t trust that one to pot noodle people.

    Then there was the friend of mine who made spare ribs slathered in marmite/worcestershire sauce. After all, better than one stinky fermented thing is: two stinky fermented things. It actually wasn’t bad but that’s because fire + pork can overcome a lot of sins.

    No, Marmite pizza. That’d be wrong.

    Chigau, they’re terrified of it. And all my crews are the serious chemical crews, but they won’t even taste Marmite. Sniffing it is a far as they’ll go, and they won’t even do that for long.

    Good for them.
    I’ve met a few cats who positively love the stuff.
    No dogs, though. And dogs like to roll around in ripe roadkill.

    I think some of it is the sticky factor, but how they figure that out, I don’t know. Rats aren’t overly keen on anything which will stick to them, although Gracie makes an exception for pancake syrup.

    Australian food can be summed up with:


    Why they have not combined the two yet is beyond me.

    On a related note, I still need to patent my perfect commercial Easter egg idea.
    Create a thin aluminium ( yes, that’s how the civilised world spells it :P ) shell via air pressure in an Easter egg mould and then spray a thin layer of hot chocolate inside.
    Charge by volume — not weight.
    $$$$. Profit!!

    I love Marmite, but it has no business getting involved with chocolate. Also, I despise chocolate Easter eggs -- they’re always bad chocolate, and stupidly over-priced (and over-packaged).
