Did they also buy meat?

Because how can you have any pudding if you don't eat your meat?

These ID laws are bullshiat. I have to show an ID to the pharmacist to buy Sudafed, which can be turned into meth, but I don't have to show an ID to Toothy or Bones back in the alley behind the drug store to buy the meth itself? Just like how I have to be all 'not a felon' to buy a gun legally, but I can't do that after that 'robbing the Tesco to pay for my pudding habit' thing, which didn't have anything to do with meth or Sudafed, and anyway I can't even get a drivers' license anymore! Especially since I don't have a car since I sold it for bail money. And Toothy and Bones don't even sell guns! What am I going to do once I run out of pudding again?

Hold on, I think the police are at the door again.

The machine, in Southampton, Hampshire, told him his purchase had to be 'approved' - and a member of staff was only too eager to demand his identification proving he was over 18.

Welcome to Obama's America, in full effect.

iron de havilland: kbronsito: And this is why we have a second ammendment. Withouth it, the king of england could tell Americans that they need id to purchase junk food.

No, in the US, McDonalds ends up paying megabucks to a woman who burns herself with their coffee.

Donnchadha: Well, if it's in the Daily Mail it must have happened exactly as described


Exactly. The POS system had that item incorrectly tagged as age controlled. If the staff member did indeed tell him that it was because "he might get burned", I'd suggest that it was just a bit of banter. She approved the sale without requiring ID.

This sort of nonsense is the Heil's bread-and-butter though. When it comes to the gutter press, we're all of us lying in the gutter, but it's looking at the drain.

Exactly. But that's enough to start the local stupidity cycle.

1. Incorrectly tagged item at Tesco indicates unnecessary ID request.

2. Daily Mail reports it as HEALTH AND SAFETY GONE MAD.

3. Muppets on Fark post UK NANNY STATE LOLZ.

And so the stupidity is complete.

Somaticasual: Of course, since it's coming from the daily mail, we can only assume the actual story took place in a a hair salon, and has nothing to do with microwavable pudding whatsoever in reality

If I had 2 cents for every third hand story about a stupid store employee, I'd have enough to start a national newspaper full of shiat.

vudukungfu: vernonFL: Yorkshire pudding is a pastry.

Black pudding is blood sausage.

Neither are edible.

Not true. Both are technically edible. However edible does not mean good to eat. A turd by definition is edible.

GAT_00: So, before some Republican comes in here screaming about liberal nanny states, I'd just like to point out that Republicans pretty much own Tennessee government and I have to show an ID in this state to buy Robitussin.

Yes, but in their defense it is well known that Gat_00 uses Robitussin to get high.
