This man has never eaten a crisp before in his life.
|>>|| No. 89201
He has, but his nanny usually cuts them up for him before chewing the crisp and regurgitating it gently in in to his mouth.
|>>|| No. 89202
why would he be holding the chrips there if the packet is facing the other way and he isn't even holding it. This is obviously staged, but the question is why?
Does he think the common man eats Crisps and therefore he has to be shown eatting crisps? doubtful, he is an unapoligetically pompus arse in every other regard so why this consession? The more you go down the rabbit hole the stranger it gets. He must be sending some kind of hidden message with this picture I just don't know what.

I suspect he is receiving cack-handed Tory PR coaching with a view to being PM one day. What a wretched eventuality that would be.

He's poking fun at the calls to boycott Yorkshire Tea.

The telling thing is the flavours he choses. Or rather, lack thereof. They are both plain. They hadn't invented flavoured crisps in his time, you see.

Roast Chicken (that is not properly cleaned and you shit yourself to death) Flavour.

no2brussels is the vanguard of the pack obviously. Then we could do something with all the fish we've reclaimed from Juncker's evil clutches so maybe Carry-On-Cod could be a goer. We'll need an extra funding for the NHS flavour so maybe something that tastes clinical, like a bad mint mouthwash, £350 Million Almond Antiseptic? Toss the nut flavour in to mask the sterile flavour. I'm imagining that dodgy mouthwash you get in the dentists but with a whiff of almond. Keeping on the NHS theme one of the Remain sods said we were all going to get super-gonorrhoea if we left the EU, we'll make Gonorrhoea & Chips the commemorative edition, nobody ever buys those anyway. Obviously we'll need something to say fuck the French, Stolen Champagne? Champagne flavoured crisps, the target market is office bashes which can't afford champagne anymore. Finally, we can't have a proper Brexit range without a mention of saville, how about the Naughty Nige flavour, it tastes of cigarettes and Carling.

Steady on your right honourable bottom washer to JRM. What's got your knickers in a tizzy?
|>>|| No. 89215
I was calling JRM a mouth breathing prick. Pardon the confusion.
It's not even that he's awfully uppper-class, it's that I can't stand how vapid and phony he is. He's positively serpentine.

Do meat flavour crisps actually taste like meat? I can't recall ever having beef flavour crisps that taste like beef and the same certainly applies for chicken and smokey bacon. Are Frazzles the actual closest? I like the chicken Sensations crisps, but I wouldn't say they taste of chicken.
|>>|| No. 89220
They don't taste like the actual meat, but when you think about it meat tastes very subtle. They do, however, taste like the meat stock. Crisp flavouring is oxo cubes basically, and a shitload of salt.
Smoky Bacon is sort of an exception, that's mostly just smoke flavouring and salt. This is why American bacon is rubbish. All of it is artificially flavoured with liquid smoke, and therefore tastes more like crisps than actual bacon, which is baffling.

Americans don't really go in for subtlety of flavour which is why their burgers have every topping under the sun and their (craft) beer tastes like getting punch in the mouth a fistful of hops.

How did Yorkshire tea end up taking over the world anyway? I could've sworn that 10 years ago the standard was PG Tips. I was converted at university and distinctly remember my family thinking it was some weird indigenous tea I'd brought back.
At any rate, I'm not boycotting a tea for the people who drink it but you can be damn sure I'd boycott a typhoo drinker from any decision making.
It's salted with liberal tears or whatever the "dank memes" are these days. Mogg, for whatever reason, is a meme-lord in our world.

It really did - I grew up drinking PG Tips, but one day I was at a cricket match, with a frankly terrific hangover and there was a stall giving out free cups of Yorkshire - I was amazed at how good it was and haven't drunk anything else since.

My personal favourite, it's only the second one I read but I know it won't be topped.

The yanks lap it up, too. Wendy's, the burger chain, has made itself infamous for its Twitter "sass", I had a look and for the most part it just seemed that they were being unnecessarily rude. I've worked various customer-facing jobs, I know better than most that customers can be right cunts, but I don't think the correct response is to be a cunt right back.
|>>|| No. 89237
>but I don't think the correct response is to be a cunt right back.
It depends on the context really, if you're afraid of losing your job being a cunt right back is definitely a no-no. If your CEO makes your job description "be a cunt right back" that innate fear you feel about being a cunt to a cunt in your own workplace environment just evaporates.

There's a restaurant (or chain of restaurants?) in America whose gimmick is that the staff are rude to you when you visit. They're weird like that.

Sainsbury's straight up didn't deliver my food order the other week, like, no notification, they simply refunded the money the morning after and deleted any record that the delivery existed from the online service which is simply not good enough, so not good enough I won't shop with them again.
I would try to tweet them online to try publically embarrass them for shitty service, but I am afraid of them ironically calling me out as an "entitled millennial snowflake conservative 😂😂😂" and getting a million retweets off of it.

Dick's Last Resort? I took a look at their Instagram account, first thing I notice is the hashtag #sass. Seems to be frequented by fat Americans.
I do remember being on holiday somewhere in the UK and seeing a pub with similar deal, though, so it's not a uniquely American phenomenon. It had signs outside, "PC-free zone, snowflakes keep out" etc. (We didn't use "snowflake" as a term then, but you get my drift.)

Given that 42% of them are obese now that isn't very distinguishing.

Someone I know is in a group which is dedicated to ganging up on and attacking people who post about poor customer service on corporate Facebook pages. Some of the complainers may be right wallies but I have witnessed her doing rather unsavoury things like mocking a disabled person who pissed himself in B&Q because there was something up with their toilets.
|>>|| No. 89248
They sound like a total cunt. Like they make society worse just through their existence. Not like that nebulous differing opinions on what is best for society way, but objectively.
|>>|| No. 89249
Well I think she sounds like a right laugh to be around as long as you're not a handicap who once pissed himself in B&Q.
|>>|| No. 89250
I think I know why she does it; she used to work in the hospitality trade so I think this is her way of getting her own back on rude customers and regaining some control.
That said, she is obviously completely mental. As a recent example, she decided to use Caroline Flack's death to call out every single person who shared the whole 'Be Kind' message as a hypocrite if they'd ever wronged her. Think golden cleric award.
She's not had the easiest life and she's clearly learned a lot of bad personality traits from her mum, but she is incredibly useful as a crazy lass magnet. Almost everyone I know from growing up that I'd class as a mental slag knows her and gets on well with her. If I want to know whether someone is a potential fruitloop then she is a brilliant barometer.

They sound like the kind of person who has made doing things out of spite because they are hurt into a lifestyle choice.
I don't doubt they are a product of their enviroment but they have really embraced it, and are doing themselves no favours. It is tragic really.
|>>|| No. 89252
It's physically jarring to see you use the word they instead of she. I know why you're doing it, and if the notion of me wincing gives you pleasure it's time to admit that you're happy to cause the same harm you're trying to avoid as long as the harm is done to your out group, not your in group.
|>>|| No. 89253
You are projecting your insecurity. I use 'they' interchangeably with gender pronouns in appropriate context and always have, because that is normal use of the English language and has been forever.
Please reassess your chasing of shadows before you end up a correspondent for info wars.

Singular they was widely used between the 14th and 18th century. The idea that it is incorrect is a newfangled Victorian notion.
|>>|| No. 89257
Even if it did I can't see it being used by us, the common people. Maybe in some high descriptive texts for some bizarre reason, but I find it hard to believe ye olde peasant farmers were walking around with their dung covered pitchforks going "ooo arr, they've got big tits ain't they?"
|>>|| No. 89258
"high descriptive texts" would have been written in Latin and the peasantry spoke Anglo-Norman and Middle English. Not knowing anything about those languages I'm happier to accept that they might use non-gendered personal pronouns than that they sound like The Wurzels.
|>>|| No. 89259
We're pretty confident that Shakespeare did in fact sound quite a lot like the Wurzels.
|>>|| No. 89260
I'm unsure of this claim. The roots of English in Germanic and Romance follow gendered language with the masculine plural as dominant e.g. Ragazzi means both group of male children and children generally in Italian.
While English developed gender neutrality, with limited exception, 'they' needlessly loses specificity (or brings confusion) which must be made up in context. This goes against the point of good communication in conveying information in as concise a way as possible.* Therefore these common folk in the 14-18th century were wrong. This is not to say that you should never use 'they' if not doing so would be rude of course.
*The whole sentence is awful:
>They sound like the kind of person who has made doing things out of spite because they are hurt into a lifestyle choice.
>She sounds like the kind of person who has made doing things out of spite a lifestyle choice.
|>>|| No. 89262
I believe Shakespeare himself used singular they in a couple of his plays. Chaucer certainly used it. If it's good enough for them, it's good enough for me.
|>>|| No. 89263
Was it contextually appropriate, like the character not knowing the gender of the person to which they were referring at the time?
