Quack quack

His mind is full of junk

Scraps of half-digested information

From third-hand sources

A dash of religious bigotry

Seasoned with cliché-ridden

Commonplace ideas

His understanding of

The planet and universe

Has inconceivable voids

His rare excursions

Into abstract thought invariably

Produce utterances both

Risible and ridiculous

In short he has the depth

And mental clarity of a

Small puddle in the road

And the intellectual weight

Of a poppadum.

old macdonald hat a farm

Old MacDonald had a farm

And on that farm he had a duck


With a quack quack here

And a quack quack there

Here a quack

There a quack

Everywhere a quack quack

Old MacDonald had a farm


(If there were a quacking event

In the Olympic Games

He would stand a good chance

Of representing his country).

Inside every fat person

It is said that inside every fat person there is a thin one screaming to get out

I have just seen something on TV about the UK having the dubious honour of heading the ranking for the most obese women in Europe.

It is a paradox that ceteris paribus most obese people in so-called advanced societies are to be found in the poorer and more disadvantaged sections of the population.

(You have to have money to eat healthy).

The System is dependent on a huge commercial campaign to lure people to consume junk. There is a giant sugar/salt/fat/additives conspiracy against us and our children.

Fast is good

Fast is fun

Life is wicked

And if you’re feeling peckish between meals, how about a tasty bag of turkey twizzles and a tube of fizzy squashahol from the hyper.

Or whatever

Turns U on.
