That’s just their little joke mate - Now we’re OUT - I can tell you !
EVIAN - NAIVE spelled backwards !
the premis being simply a comment on anyone who is gullible enough to buy water that has been poured into plastic bottled and shipped 5000 miles, when they have perfectly Good water in their own homes !
There are plenty of the dumb soy-boy types who buy it around here as well !
Not really - we get plenty of cheap chickens - mainly from Eastern Europe where the so-called “Welfare Regs” are not enforced so strongly - but hey I’ve had plenty of US chicken when I came to Florida and it was fine. Round us we have loads of “Pretend Welfare” Regs around chickens - so called “Free-Range” is the most ludicrous of all !
Thing is we have an issue with food poisoning and intensively bred chicken does have bacterial issues (fairly low scale) and when I open the instructions it says “DO NOT WASH” - The principle being that the carcass goes whole into the oven and the contaminant bacteria gets cooked to death. The USA chicken has teh bacteria killed by a low intensity chlorine dip - same thing ! BUT I buy chickens and cut them up to make 5 joints and so I’ve spread this hypothetical bacteria all over the kitchen, whereas if I had chlorine dipped - there would be no bacteria !
The funny thing is that these same city dwellers who think chicken is made in plastic bags and chlorine is bad ( Greenpeace actually tried to BAN chlorine - that’s one of teh main reasons Patrick Moore kicked them into touch) - are quite happy to buy their bags of green leaves from Tesco or wherever Which HAVE been Chlorine washed !
It’s just the Loonies at it again mate - If there IS a difference - yours are LESS dangerous than ours !
