Another surrender to the forces of evil.
I will never buy Cadbury Chocolate again!
And, so the “sanitizing” continues. J Parsons has it right. Do not purchase Cadbury products. The best and most effective way to hit these multinational giants is in the hip pocket. When their bottom line suffers, they will reconsider their strategies, but not a moment before.
I havent bought Cadburys for quite some time …
Also, Sainsbury’s refused to stock Easter eggs produced by the Real Easter Egg Company.
Actually I’m quite happy to seperate religious Easter from chocolate munching and rabbit idolizing.
I stockpile the chocolate-cream eggs.
Shocking image: Excessive Easter-Egg Consumption
A dog vomiting chocolate strikes me as every dog’s fantasy.
See in dog culture, you can have your chocolate and eat it to. Sometimes a few times!
The photo is great, Its a veritable meme machine.
Smart doggie. Chocolate contains theobromine, which can kill canines.
If you must feed your pooch chocolate, do so in very small quantities.
Ever see the American series, Wilfred?

Silence in Paris
Silence in Paris
What does it mean when no one talks about a brutal murder?
As every married person knows, silences can be pregnant with meaning, even if the meaning is not immediately clear. The silence in the French press about a recent startling event in Paris is surely pregnant with meaning. On Monday, April 3, an Orthodox Jewish woman, Sarah Halimi, a doctor aged 66, was thrown out of a window to her death by an African man aged 27. He was her neighbor in the flats where she lived. According to witnesses, whose testimony has yet to be confirmed, the man, who had been harassing her with insults for several days, shouted “Allahu akbar!” as he threw her.
Also, according to unconfirmed reports, neighbors had called the police because of the young man’s behavior. Three policemen came but did nothing, deciding that it was up to other authorities, presumably psychiatric, to act. At any rate, the young man was transferred to a psychiatric clinic almost immediately after his arrest.
He had a history of delinquency and in all probability had taken drugs. It seems likely that he was in a state of psychotic excitement, whether drug-induced, drug-exacerbated or purely endogenous, at the time of his crime.
But it has been known for a long time that the delusions of madness take on the coloring of the culture of those who suffer them. (De Quincey says, in The Confessions of an English Opium Eater, that if a man thinks of oxen, his opium dreams will be of oxen.) It would be stretching credulity to suggest that the young man’s victim was chosen at random, that he might just as well have chosen someone else. If this is so, it reveals something unpleasant about the man’s cultural milieu.
Sorry. I meant to post the above in Readers’ Links.
I haven’t had Cadbury in years, since they became halal.
