Foolish idea o' the day

It's that man Dykes again:

"To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they will introduce special codes and colours on food labelling for use by schoolchildren".

The answer, fortunately, boiled down to 'no'.

However always supposing Dykes had his druthers, there would be the scope for all sorts of unintended amusement - rugrat-friendly traffic light symbols on gourmand-sized pots of beluga caviar, and at the other end of the scale, blended gunk for babies.

Further submissions would be most welcome.

Come to think of it, it would add colour to life's rich pageant.

If, perhaps, not in the way that Dykes envisaged it. As I have noted often in the past I am wholeheartedly in favour of adding to the gaiety of the nation, but I suspect there are better means to that end than this.

Yours truly finding myself at a loose end, I repaired to the Dog and Mandelson for a refreshing pint of Old Prepuce.

There I espied the Vicar of Nether Wallop, the Reverend Dawkins.

Now I am averse to heated debates with men of the cloth since my exchanges with Father O'Tootle of Our Lady of Nether Wallop RC concerning the ineffectuality of the Vatican approved Duckworth/Lewis method of contraception but sometimes intellectual curiosity gets the better of a chap as I'm sure you will agree.

'Tell me this' I said to the hapless booby. 'Does the church have a position on domestic bleach?'

'Domestic bleach?' the dogcollared dolt exclaimed. 'No, I don't think so'.

No wonder the church is in such a mess , don't you think?
