Rather curiously after writing my last post I realised there was a major yeast extract story blowing up in New Zealand that was so
important laughable* that it had made international news.
And no, I’m not making this up. Even our Prime Minister, John Key, has made a comment on the situation.
Actually I used to be a Marmite eater but Cathy turned me into a traitor to my country.
* Aside from Lord of the Rings New Zealand often features internationally in the final piece of the news where the presenters like to have a good-natured chuckle about something inane happening in the world. When we lived in Japan this happened quite a few times on the Japanese news. The two New Zealand articles I can remember were a bunch of students racing motorised toilets, and a huge seal that had started hanging out in a small New Zealand town. I can pretty much guarantee that the Marmite thing is now being reported in Japan right after the weather with a good-natured and slightly patronising air.
