An NZ court has found GlaxoSmithKline guilty of misleading advertising because there’s actually no detectable vitamin C in Ribena. But in Singapore, the AVA has certified that local Ribena Berries aren’t just cannibals, they’ve also been ‘certified rich in vitamin C‘.
This is an exercise in self-awareness. I still have the habit of not answering questions properly. No, let me clarify that. I still have the knack of not answering questions – by giving an incongruent answer.
Q: What’s your favourite colour?
A: My favourite colour is very nice.
Q: Does it taste like tomato?
A: It feels like tomato.
Q: Are you hungry?
A: I feel like chicken rice.
Anyone whose ever borne the brunt of such answers, please, accept my sincere apologies on behalf of answerers of a similar ilk. My wife sympathises with you too, because I unanswer questions like this several times a day.
Q: What time is it?
A: Not hungry yet.
I’m told some wars were started because of this.
It’s a case of Monkey See, Monkey Do. Or Sea-Monkey See, Monkey Do, if you want to be more specific. Or Sea-Monkey Sea-Monkey Do…
But anyway, Paul Chan’s started his own colony. For the benefit of his kids, of course. Of course! And I’ve been told that they’ve run out of Sea-Monkey kits at the Toys R Us at Tampines.
There’s nothing wrong with raising Sea-Monkeys, but if you want to assuage your guilt, you can blame this blog, or if you have kids, just say it’s for them. It’s an educational tool after all. (Daddy, is it true that female Sea-Monkeys can fertilize their own eggs? Does that make them Lebanese Sea-Monkeys? Or are they simply Homogenous?)
If you can’t be bothered, then just watch tv. Speaking of which, how about that American Idol huh? Congratulations Jordin Sparks. What an Idol, what a name for an Idol.
Looking back to the beginning of the season, and as much as I’d rather forget, I’m recalling and admitting to saying that I thought Sanjaya Malakar was a hit, and that he ‘got my vote’.
Next time, must be very careful what I write.
