Political correctness gone mad (again)? 17:39 - Nov 6 with 1358 viewsfooters

I was in the local supermarket earlier today with the DW and DS (8) (off school at the minute with suspected CMDLD) and had the fright of my life in the cereal aisle...

It seems the cowardly barstewards at Raisio Group have rebranded Sugar Puffs as Honey Monster Puffs. Now, I remember when Coco Pops did this back in the day and all hell broke loose.

When this happened with Coco Pops I vividly remember there being a phone-in poll aimed at kids from that happy-go-lucky monkey and his jungle friends.

Is it worse to name one of the principle ingredients on the pack as its brand name, or to insidiously promote its consumption to kiddies through cute, cuddly characters? Or are both fine? If this beast appeared in my bedroom at night, I'd sh1t a brick... PC gone mad? Penny for your thoughts, TWTD...

I was at school in Sarf London. When I started at Grammar School, half the fifth form were wannabe Shed Boys. Some of them actually were.

Maybe you eat too many sugar puffs??

My recommendation is that you should eat more asparagus....

The pee stink from that is unbelievable

Mate of mine works in an asparagus farm. To keep the prices high they would rather send prime Grade 1 asparagus to compost than flood the market and cause the price to drop. Some of this unwanted makes its way in my direction

Lovely, although the slight downside is my p*ss stinks from late April thru 'til July

Absolutely true

I wonder if the Honey Monster would call his kids Sugar Puffs if he had any idea of the disgusting genocide they inflict on asparagus.

Didn't say I bought it though, did I? We were merely walking up that aisle on the way to feminine hygiene (eyes closed). If I had that beast glaring at me every time I opened the cupboard it would frighten the life out of me!

I'm just trying to make the most of these final few days before our bittersweet parting. In totally unrelated news, Kleenex shares are predicted to skyrocket this month...
