Don’t Mess With The Chocolate …

A while back, there was a twitter thread about how hormones affected women’s attitude and behaviour.

Because it was written by women, I felt I was intruding reading the comments – but they were brilliant. Not just for their self awareness and openness, but for simply talking about something rarely discussed.

Or at least, rarely discussed with men, mainly because even the most stupid bloke knows that referring to anything to do with female hormones increases the odds of getting a karate chop in the throat by about a million percent.

Anyway, as I was reading, I saw this one …

I don’t mind admitting, it made me laugh out loud on the tube.

Not because I found it stupid, but because I found it utterly relatable.

[Though divorcing someone over it might be a little exterme]

Don’t get me wrong, chocolate buttons are awesome … but they’re not the sort of thing an adult wants when they’re craving for chocolate. As a little unexpected treat – they’re fine – but to satisfy a craving, they’re about as useless as watching Forest when you want to see a really good game of football.

That said, as funny as the lady in questions reaction might have been, it does highlight that maybe Fry’s were on the right track with their chocolate ads from the 30’s and 40’s.

As they say, the more things change the more they stay the same.

Thank you so much Robert.

Like you would ever say no to chocolate buttons.

Comment by Bazza

That sounds an amazing thread.
Occasionally twitter is a source for good rather than blanket hate and abuse.

Comment by Pete

Occasionally. As in occasionally Rob writes an interesting post.

Comment by Bazza

Nothing is a useless as watching Forest, not even watching Leeds

Comment by Northern

nothing is as sad as supporting leeds or forest except being a planning twat that supports leeds or forest.
