News, but not the serious kind
Mess hall food no Dutch treat?
Blog Guy, I read that Australia’s troops in Afghanistan are unhappy with their food. Apparently they don’t like the stuff that the Dutch-run mess hall is serving. Could Dutch food really be that bad?
That sounds yummy. Have you been to Australia? What do they eat there?
Yes, I have. They eat Vegemite, this dark brown food paste that they spread on everything.
Ewwww. What else do they eat there?
Things called witchetty-grubs, which are worms.
Hmmm. So it’s worms and icky veggie spread vs. Gouda cheese and Droste Cocoa? What are the Australians doing about it?
Our story says they’re rushing in a special team of Australian cooks. And, I would guess, planeloads of worms.
