Rant Of The Day THIS RANT 10/03/97

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.

Update: more on our favourite foods

Don't say we don't keep you informed. Regular readers will recall our lamentations when we learnt that Snapple iced tea varieties were being taken off the market. You can therefore imagine our excitement when we found a store still selling the precious raspberry-tinted beverage. The shop assistant was a little shocked at our request for eight bottles, but recovered nicely. Even the fact that some of the bottles were past the expiry date wouldn't have stopped that particular purchase. And if you think we're going to tell you where it is, you must have rocks in your head.

On another food-related topic, we received a response to yesterday's rant on travel tips from the infamous Spanky, which deserves a wider public:

In-flight meal omelettes should be more than treated with caution. It is more advisable to eat the plastic tray they come in than the omelette. They don't look like eggs, they don't smell like eggs, they don't have the texture of eggs, nor do they taste like eggs. Based on the following data, we can classify them in the non-egg substance category, along with basketballs and donkeys. I have long suspected that the flight attendants are ripping up bits on insulation from the fuselage (I like saying that word: "Look! Some fuselage!"), heating them up and serving them, calling them omelettes as a 'prank'.

So mind your eggs.
