THIS MEANS WAR !!!!

BBC News - Canada 'orders Briton to stop selling Marmite and Irn Bru'

Irn Bru contains at least one additive - Ponceau 4R - which has been linked to hyperactivity and does not appear on the approved food list in Canada.

The other products are banned because they are "enriched with vitamins and mineral" while some canned foods and soup contained too much animal product.
Too much animal product? WTF?

A Vanguard class submarine has been sent.

Note : Anyone who doesn't like Marmite should start their own thread. And get psychological help.

Yes, clearly a light hearted joke is the entire problem here. Not the narcissistic ego bukake that is the lounge.

Or a killer tornado consisting of canned foods with too much animal product. Quick, someone call Syfy and Ian Ziering's agent.

Nobody ever mentions my legendary sexual prowess.

Title fixed. Just report your own post if you want a title fixed, it's easier to see that way.
The new Mac Pro has up to 30 MB of cache inside the processor itself. That's more than the HD in my first Mac. Somehow I'm still running out of space.

THIS needs to be banned.


Nasty stuff. It makes SPAM taste like filet mignon. Have they banned Vegimite as well?

So they're legislating your condiments now?

I hear coffee (and caffeine in general) is linked to hyperactivity as well, and so is sugar. Hopefully they'll save you from that stuff too.

Must say that I'm disappointed with the Canadian defence so far.
