I would like to start today’s post by admitting that I am officially devoid of functioning brain cells.
*waits quietly until everyone stops shouting NO SHIIIIIIT*
This morning I read an article in the Metro claiming that from now on all copies would be edible to save on recycling.
Here’s how my thought process went between Liverpool Street and Oxford Circus.
NO WAY!! EDIBLE NEWSPAPERS!!! Best idea EVER!! What do they taste like? The girl in the photo looks like she’s enjoying it. How come she’s tried one already? Did they do a trial run? How did I miss that?? Hang on, do I HAVE to eat it? What if I’m not hungry? What if I’ve just had breakfast?? What if I don’t like it? Can I spit it out? That’s WAY more gross than chewing gum. Bleurgh. What about calories? Does paper have calories?? Actually I don’t think this is a very good idea.
I believed it.
I GENUINELY BELIEVED IT.
