That’s just as pointless as McDonald’s doing salads.



I think vegans would eat them, but I'd highly doubt they'd be healthy. Probably some mash up of soya and wheat and a few herbs and rapeseed oil....hmmm, lovely :fp:

Marketing ploy to get people talking about the product when it first comes out.

Seemingly one that's working as intended.

That's the point. In talking about how stupid it is people are still talking about the product and spreading awareness of it.
It's a tried and tested method of marketing something.

I've just bought a stand up paddle-board. A friend suggested I get one for cyprus. Could be interesting.

Surely they cant advertise it in this packaging, then not sell it this packaging?

Christ, you're always ill aren't you? What do you think causes it all? I know you have some liver issue/chrons. Is it all related?

It's just the press kit. They're not exactly advertising it.

Well remembered, a lot of its interlinked or just bad luck. Like the liver disease is just out on its own.

I take a lot of immunosuppressive drugs for the crohn's which leads to illnesses like this. Normally think I'm ok at handling illnesses but this one is crazy bad.

Is anyone on here based in Hong Kong? I know there's a couple of Japanese-based forumites here but I can't remember if anyone's in HK.

Just seen there's some Chinese New Year Lego sets this year that seem to be Hong Kong exclusive :shifty:

EDIT: Not Hong Kong, the "Asia Pacific region", which apparently includes Australia.
