As I was happily chomping my way through a piece of toast with vegemite … heaven on earth … I asked myself this question:
- Do plastic bag refusniks (to use Nick Cater’s wonderful term) eat vegemite?
I’m thinking NOT. And for the following reasons:
- It is full of salt (yum);
- It is highly processed, mainly yeast;
- It is manufactured by a tax-avoiding, exploitative multinational company.
I guess their alternative is home-made marmalade, made from organically grown cumquats lovingly picked in the early morning when the dew is still on the fruit.
So Cats, what else do the PBRs of this world shun?
One of my daughters lives around the corner from a weekly “Farmers’ Market”. She tells me that at one of the organic fruit and veg stalls, the hipsters who run it can be seen taking the avocadoes out of the boxes shipped from Mildura, removing the sticker and lovingly placing them in rustic wicker baskets.
And charging double to triple the normal price of avacadoes.
The PBRs line up for them.
