    Hi all!
    It's sad, I know...but do any of you think the "serving suggestions" are just plain stupid?

    Or the adverts on petrol pumps that offer you a mobile phone charger for £3.99, with a glossy pic...and the small print says that the iPhone isn't included...

    Or advertising signs that simply don't make sense...or are just plain funny...

    I'll kick off with this this one...bet none of you ever thought of serving tomato ketchup like this:
    WP_20180825_14_42_10_Pro[1].jpg
    Crikey! Let's reconstitute the sauce, make it back into tomatoes...and put 3 of them in a group...

    All the label on the bottle is "suggesting" is that there "may" be 3 tomatoes in the bottle... Or "tomate's" which i'm sure are like tomatoes in some way.

    This is going to be a great thread if it picks up

    The whole idea behind a "serving suggestion" is to make sure you don't expect to get what's in the picture...apart from the ingredients...so here we have a cup of tea, and some shrubbery...perfect!

    I know what green tea is, Midwest...the stupidity is in not recognising that it should never be served in a glass cup..doh!
    BTW, "stupid Pirate" is a contradiction in terms, if you know your history, unlike "stupid footballer" which is clearly tautology

    It's basically a disclaimer on food packaging and is used as a legal fine print, I think it's banned in Ireland.

    ...Perfect shrubbery , so insecticides were liberally applied ...!!
    ( A representation of the tea -before processing however you like it)
    -(don't ask = 3 options ..1 a bit like soy sauce)-
    Carrying on from perfect vegetation .. Not a bug ever wanted a nibble
    ( no need to put Glyphoshates on ingredients list ).. as healthy as DDT.

    ... Don't analyse your food to closely , or will find allowable rat hair count in spices , or latest sewage leak at local chippy ..
    --TOO much info--!! I'll use my nose on a need to know basis.
    What does Blue Roquefort go with ? Probably mildew.

    I very seldom travel by train, but believe it is quite normal to have sockets available for charging your phone/laptop. WP_20180927_18_23_19_Pro[1].jpg
    Clearly, if they are not working, it must be due to a fault. Why have they screwed steel plates over all of the sockets? The notice looks pretty permanent...is this commonplace?
