Marmite – love it or hate it?

This news story made me laugh this morning. A lorry overturned on the M1 last night, spilling 20 tonnes of marmite onto the carriageway. TWENTY TONNES of marmite. The motorway was closed in both directions for the clear up operation.

Surely though the solution is simple – get everyone out of their cars, make the people who hate marmite go and stand on the opposite carriageway, and give them cups of tea and biscuits to keep them happy. Then put all the people who love marmite in the marmitey lanes and give them all pieces of toast.

Job done.

(This country really should put me in charge of more things.)

      I reckon I’d be pretty good at it. I’d think outside the box :-)

    “Love it” is rather strong but I do have it on toast once in a while.

    I had a jar of marmite in my backpack when I was travelling through China, and yep, you guessed it, it leaked, all over my everything, brown sticky sticky sticky stuff on t-shirts, in pockets, in crevices only reachable by fingernail. Ah, give me toast, preferably buttered, yum. I did dream it that day, as I licked it off my fingers. Maybe the M1 needed tarring…I like your plan!

      That sounds quite disgusting!

      Definitely need butter too. What crazy fool wouldn’t have butter??

    Lol, I thought for a moment it was April 1st when I saw that news article!
    I am on the fence, most times I bliddy hate the stuff, occasionally I crave a little on toast, mainly because I read somewhere that it is supposed to be good for you!

      Definitely! B vitamins and all that…

    Tell me when you go into politics – I’ll be voting for you. (btw, I found you through VbinCatalunya.)
