What's new pussy cat - the Herd have always been manipulated Gormless, are you saying it's increasing?

<<Low in fat>>, may well be true, it may even be "zero fat". But what they don't say is how much sugar and refined carbs they have packed into each spoonful.

I knew the USSR were going down the pan when I heard Khrushchev say that they must produce and eat more breakfast cereals to compete with the USA. Breakfast gloop, the sign of a developed society.

The above comments bring to mind the words of the old children's hymn,

Wikipedia quote:-

All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful,
The Lord God made them all.

Each little flower that opens,
Each little bird that sings,
He made their glowing colours,
He made their tiny wings.

All things bright ...

The rich man in his castle,
The poor man at his gate,
God made them high and lowly,
And ordered their estate.

All things bright ...

The purple headed mountain,
The river running by,
The sunset and the morning,
That brightens up the sky;

All things bright ...

The cold wind in the winter,
The pleasant summer sun,
The ripe fruits in the garden,
He made them every one:

All things bright ...

The tall trees in the greenwood,
The meadows where we play,
The rushes by the water,
We gather every day;

All things bright ...

He gave us eyes to see them,
And lips that we might tell,
How great is God Almighty,
Who has made all things well.

All things bright ...

(Amen)

Due to the third verse's endorsement of the class system, many later versions and performances of the hymn omit it.[3][4][5] The United Church of Canada includes a fourth verse, which seems particularly appropriate to Canadian geography: "The rocky mountain splendour, / the lone wolf's haunting call, / the great lakes and the prairies, / the forest in the fall

"Superfood" is a regulated word. It's now necessary to have some proven useful property of the food before you can put it on a label. Doesn't stop journalists using it all the time though for foods with no proven benefits.

As the Gormless One says, the term is a marketing gimmick and a load of rollox. No one has any idea what the frack a superfood is.

Gom; My language is a little too precise for some folk's tastes. Your language is a little too abstract for some folk's tastes. =)
