perhaps this is just another curious side effect of globalisation and the grand homogenising effects of the mono-cultural expanse.. or perhaps it's a sure sign of the end of the world and we're all fucked for catfood (you be the judge, this shit could go either way..)
consider the humble potato chip.. it used to be just PLAIN, CHICKEN, SALT N VINEGAR, BARBECUE and CHEESE N ONION.. but, now look at the retarded monstrosity of whack it's become..
as you can see.. this is a packet of SMITHS chips, commemorating the "FLAVOURS OF THE COMMONWEALTH" by choosing a "CANADIAN BACON & CHEESE" flavour..
now first off.. wot the FUCK are they trying to achieve here by making "CANADIAN BACON & CHEESE" a freaking chips flavour!!?? I mean, sure you could taste the cheese.. but the bacon!? and not only that.. but a distinctly CANADIAN bacon!? wot kinda rarified palate are they expecting from the average arse scratching couch potato gormet here? do they THINK we could taste the distinct difference between nationalities of bacon? or between the cheese and bacon? or even just cheese and chicken flavours? wot do they expect from us? it's just a POTATO chip fer fucksake!
but to make matters even more retarded, consider..
SMITHS (likely owned by a US multinational)
makes a CANADIAN BACON & CHEESE flavour
which contains 2 souvenir AUSTRALIANA tattoo's
which are then manufactured in TAIWAN
fucked up aye?
oh, and if you think CANADIAN BACON & CHEESE is fuckoff bizarre, check THESE puppies out..
yup, those boffins in the SMITHS food laboratory must be seriously snuffing some a-grade goofballs here if they think THIS is a good idea.. "oooo.. you can really taste the MINT too.. it's like all furry on me tongue.. WOW!"
RED SALMON, ASPARAGUS & WHITE SAUCE?
RASBERRY CORDIAL & VODKA CRUISER?
PAVEMENT, GUM & CIGARETTE ASH!?
EXISTENTIAL ANGST & THE ILLUSION OF FREE WILL?
civilization is spiralling down the toilet I tell's ya!
