What sort of pathetic country can’t even manufacture its own Creme Eggs?

Having said that, the UK-made Creme Eggs aren’t bad. There isn’t much of a “yolk” and the consistency of the chocolate seems slightly different, but it’s not worth joining a Facebook group over unless you truly have no life*. What’s more concerning is the colossal waste of fuel involved in importing these little things from the UK and repackaging them in Australia. That’s a lot of middlemen.

You can tell how fortunate a country is by what issues get its blood boiling. New Zealand has the great Creme Egg Scandal of 2010, and the eternal flag debate. Aren’t we lucky? Personally I’m more concerned about the large number of dead young women in the news recently. Dead by murder or suicide. Who’d like to start a national debate about that?

  1. As well as the great Creme Egg Scandal of 2010, I seem to recall a Snifters Snafu in 2009 and an Eskimo Babies Brouhaha in 2008. Our national identity is a laconic innovative rural man with very bad teeth.
