    This means war!

    There is no life without Marmite. We saw the terrible suffering in New Zealand when their Marmite factory was destroyed in the earthquakes. Never again!

    Canadians of Caledonian extraction will be reduced to drinking whisky and beer as poor substitutes for Irn Bru (made in Scotland, from girders).

    Whisky and beer.......Oh all right, I'll just have to live with that.

    A small return punch for banned Canadian seal meat perhaps?

    Make them eat Seal Flipper Pie or Poutine and drink Screech.

    Actually I rather liked Screech. Poutine needs bacon. Seal Flipper Pie could be improved by actually using a real rubber glove filled with wallpaper paste.

    I couldn't believe that when I read the article...Ovaltine is banned because it's fortified with vitamins and minerals!

    God forbid people have access to anything that might be good for them...

    Both rock! Without Marmite or Vegemite the world is a darker, more frightening place: WE NEED MORE MARMVEGE ADDICTS! Kids need to be raised eating Marmite/Vegemite at every meal! Send them to school in their Vegeweener uniforms!

    Marmicrisps in their lunchboxes:

    Sooth their coughs and colds with Marmivaseline!

    MAKE THEM PROUD TO BE MARMI ZEALANDERS, AUSSIEVEGES and CANADAMITES!
