Corn On The Cob - It's A Trojan Horse.

A bitter sweet question of taste.
If one could only offer opinions on things where one had some knowledge I would be forced into silence.  

But what about this genetic engineering business? The French have banned all GM Maize - otherwise known as corn on the cob. Did they think we didn't realize it was crossed with a horse? Organic commandos have stormed a field armed with spades and bridles.

D and neigh.
Now comes the news that embryos may soon be produced using three parents in order to combat mitochondrial disease. I know we should be concerned but is this anything really new? A close friend of my mother confided that several American soldiers had fathered her war baby shortly before D Day. The child turned out perfect. 

Bacchus to the future
While I was deep in intellectual contemplation of this issue I wandered into ASDA - the thinking woman's outpost of Walmart. Right before my eyes was the proof that food detectives have sought for years. Yes - grapes developed to look like lemons. You only get four gramons to a bunch. The young lady filling the shelves told me there had been a mistake with the label. Hah! Do they expect me to believe that?

  1. Your spoof are always delightful. Laughing first thing Monday morning is a real plus. Thanks, my friend.

    1. Your delight is my joy Christina. By the way they taste just like lemons. I've tasted some cheap wines that taste like they've been made with lemons! Several of them were British. The Romans made wine in the UK. Just goes to show their pagan gods had some chutzpah. Thanks for stopping by. Emma x
