Rant Of The Day is where I get to mouth off about whatever I feel like for however long I like. Theoretically, I'll update my whinge/opinion piece every weekday; in practice, maybe not so often.
Immature reflection, though, made me realise that there's something a bit sick about the whole concept. The infamous Smurf sex story notwithstanding, there is something creepy about shoving a Smurf in your mouth. "This is digusting," said Steven Keaton, another Eye contributor. "As a connoisseur of pasta, I'm offended."
I'm also a little concerned about the textual basis for this product. None of the Smurf books I remember reading as a child included the Smurfs hoeing into pasta. Since my favourite meal to eat when reading The Astrosmurf was John West Spaghetti & Meatballs, I suspect I would have remembered any passing reference. (My copy of this book still has sauce stains on it.)
Is this rant going anywhere? No. But since when was that a rule?
