Politics In A Cereal Packet

Readers will be aware Adolf enjoys a long, brisk walk every morning.  Currently eight kilometers completed in 83 minutes or thereabouts.   Musical assistance is provided by either the band of The Grenadier Guards or the good people at ABC Classic FM.

However, readers will not be aware that upon return from his morning jaunt, after carefully stretching down, Adolf enjoys a bowl of dry Nutrigrain covered in chopped up fresh fruit.  Usually banana, rock melon, peach, black grapes, mandarin, nectarine and sometimes mango.  (Australia is home to the best stone fruit in the world.)

One morning a few weeks ago I discovered those little Nutrigrain fellows have personalities which roughly align with the major political parties.

Here we have the cheerful, confident, positive, smiling conservatives (National, Liberal, Republican)



And here can be seen the down at the mouth, sour, morose socialists (Labour/Greens, Labor/Greens, Democrats)

Depending where you live, there may be a parkrun near you. 5km, walk or run, timed, free, worldwide, nice stats page of all your participation.
Due to a back injury, I walked instead of running on Saturday. Around 36m 40s, which is a fast walking pace.

Nutri Grain? Dreadful food, full of sugar and no nutritional goodness at all. You need to make your own Bircher.

I wonder which cereal represents the President of the the USA....Sugar Puffs perhaps.

"As students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School prepare to return to lessons this week after an attack that left 17 pupils and teachers dead, the President told a meeting of the nation’s governors: “You don’t know until you test it, but I really believe I’d have run in there even if I didn’t have a weapon.”....

Well Betty since 2010 over 16,000 kids have been shot in American schools. Its part of their culture and secondly the majority of those occurred on the darling of the left watch, Obama. ( and a huge number on other peoples watch but I don't think you are interested in that fact)

Rossco,
You miss the point entirely. Obama did not bullshit about being brave. Lieutenant Heel spur had five deferments to avoid Vietnam.

Oh and your 16,000 is just a stupid attempt to be stupid. The number is about 160 dead but treble that if you count the wounded.

Yeah but Nick, you're forced into eating rabbit food by your missus.

Anon 8:36 There is a hell of a lot of difference between saying, I quote, "kids shot in American schools" and children of High school age.

If you want a debate at least have the courtesy to debate properly.
