Offended by Safefood “spread” adds?

Those radio adds for spreading waistlines and free measuring tapes to check if your circumference is less than 37 inches (men) and 32 inches(women) didn’t bother me……… at first.

Then I heard one while I was eating and another later in bed in the dark. I started thinking and it started to scare me so I got up and measured myself, believe me, it’s even more frightening in centimetres as you come in well over the hundred. I wondered what I could do to cut down.  I just get too much enjoyment out of my 92 calories per glass and I don’t think we humans are designed to live to be 100 (my knees were banjaxed by the time I was 30!) 

I have no problem being told what I can and can’t do but being told what shape I should be??. I will register my protest at this advertisement and question its motives. I will also continue to live dangerously with my well earned 41 and a half inches !!

About winephantom

The recession has hit hard, no more tipping the last 1/2 glass out of the champagne bottle because it's a tad too warm. My lender would be kicking down my door for his interest if he knew I was drinking at all. Now I spend my time with the €5-€10 bottles discovering some real value and encountering some swamp donkeys to be avoided. This blog is a Wine Diploma holding palate, forced to trawl the murky depths populated by the bare knuckle fighters of the "entry level" wine world, trying to reveal the real crackers. Tasting notes exposed!! Regular explanations of the rubbish that are tasting notes! Wine Waffle indeed! Stories and trivia about wine.
