For God's Sake Don't Eat The Food In England

By Robert Paul Reyes

"British consumers have a nasty habit of serving their dinner guests food that has been dropped on the floor or past the recommended date for its sale and consumption, a new survey showed on Friday.


The poll of 2,000 British consumers, commissioned by Italian pasta brand Giovanni Rana, found 15 percent of respondents admitted to serving "floor pie," food that had fallen on the floor, and 10 percent knowingly made a feast for guests using off-food or goods well past their sell-by date.

And 13 percent said they had accidentally poisoned themselves and their guests with their cooking."


I am very picky about what I eat, and I`d rather be dead than go to a potluck dinner. I imagine there`s a potluck dinner to welcome new souls to hell.

England isn`t exactly renowned for its cuisine, British food is so unappetizing and bland that it might actually improve its flavor if it`s dropped on the floor.

I`m very clean and I`m constantly washing my hands, but I am a lousy cook. I`m surprised that my cooking hasn`t poisoned anyone -- knock on wood.

It`s not surprising that Brits treat food with so much disdain, tourist shouldn`t drink the water in Mexico or eat the food in England.
