Rant Of The Day THIS RANT 14/01/99

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.

However, by digging around the site some more, I did manage to find out just what the ingredients in Big Mac sauce are. If you want to throw some together, you'll need:

Sounds appetising, doesn't it? I'm off to buy some xantham gum.
