Right to be Rude




These biscuits made us
question what is meant by rude
Distasteful, inappropriate, disgusting,
obscene or just plain crude.

Are you glad that page 3
is now bikini clad,
or is it just for your Dad?
Do you lament the decline
of manners,
does it make you want to march
with softly spoken banners?
Do you reminisce
about the yesterdays of Sir and Miss?
Cringe at those who blaspheme,
when their kids shout and scream?
Laugh at racist jokes,
or sympathise with those whom fun pokes?

Should everyone be free to offend,
are you accepting of this current trend?
Our democracy's based on the
principle of free speech.
So who the hell are we to preach?

Biscuit: Rude Health Spelt Oaty
Taste test: 6.5 out of 10 (but are they really biscuits?)
Cost: £2.10 from Waitrose in Lymington
