Sharing Packs of Crisps – A Great Way To Spread Infections

Dr Vernon Coleman MB ChB DSc FRSA

Would you let a bunch of strangers put their unwashed fingers into your mouth?

I thought not.

You know as well as I do that this would be a great way to pick up all sorts of nasty bugs and, at the very least, end up with a two day bout of vomiting and diarrhoea.

So, why on earth would you buy a huge bag of crisps designed to be shared between a lot of people with grubby fingers?

I mention this because I see that Gary Lineker, a former footballer and now the unthinking person’s liberal luvvie crisp salesman, is flogging very big bags of crisps designed to be shared.

This is utter lunacy.

Crisps are not good food because they tend to contain far too much fat.

In my view, the crisps which Lineker promotes (Walkers) are, like all similar products, likely to lead to obesity, heart disease and an early death.

(It is a salutary thought that children die because of the product which is making Lineker rich.)

Now, the ‘sharing bags’ are likely to add a variety of nasty infections to that list of illnesses.

Incidentally, am I the only person who is offended when this damned crisp salesman tries to take the high moral ground on political issues such as Brexit?

I respectfully suggest that in my opinion Lineker possibly knows less about the EU than he knows about nutrition and child obesity.
