    Wait till you count up how many words are in their regulations about Olive Oil!
    They actually pay farmers NOT to grow olive trees!

    Actually, I'm surprised it has taken this long for the proverbial to hit the fan, as most of these governments have been running HUUUUGE deficit budgets every year since WW2, and eventually, the time must come when they have to pay the piper.

    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom, is knowing not to serve it in a fruit salad.

    Total number of "pre-" purchased/booked/applied/on pre-sale (as in Elton John's concert in today's paper)........don't make me sicque!

    Not only that they can't sell 'bent' bananas in Europe - there is actually a regulation on how much bend the banana can have and if it has too much of a curve it can't be sold
