You Can't Make This Shit Up

"Just two days ago, Gordon Brown was urging us all to stop wasting food and combat rising prices and a global shortage of provisions.

But yesterday the Prime Minister and other world leaders sat down to an 18-course gastronomic extravaganza at a G8 summit in Japan, which is focusing on the food crisis." Click here to read more about the absurdity of it all. Source: dailymail.co.uk

Here is the menu for that evening. I wonder which wine was paired with the discussion about famine?

The really sick and sad part about this, is that many of those plates were left almost full with food and thrown out. This crowd counts calories and worries about their waistline. Plus they have gorged on extravagant food so much, that they don't often appreciate it.

I am coveting the white asparagus though.
