Vegetables or snail?

10th June 2005 at 01:00
A group of pupils heading off to France received the usual pep talk from their party leader who encouraged them to try different food - "you never know, you might like it".

One girl asked another teacher: "When he said different food, did he mean stuff like snails or frog's legs? Or did he mean vegetables?"

The food tsar's agenda has some way to go, clearly.

(Thanks to the ever-entertaining for the above).
