Tomato soup

Canned Tomato Soup – tomato soup for the unimaginative, the indolent, the unfortunate – just like grandma used to make, but she didn’t **** in it.

Ingredients: Tomato puree (water of questionable origin, tomato paste made from tomatoes cultivated with toxic fertilisers and pesticides), high fructose corn syrup (toxic corn derivative long outlawed in much of the civilised world), wheat flour (from genetically modified wheat, in use only the US and in those nations compelled by misfortune to use American products), water (again of dubious origin), salt (but not sodium chloride, table salt), flavouring (toxic chemical concoctions, the names of which are too horrifying to mention, endorsed, still, by the FDA, as assurances that the ignorant American public will get its required daily dose of toxins, sufficient to keep it stupefied, compromised, and more easily manipulated), citric acid (of uncertain origin, but certainly not benign), lower sodium natural sea salt (why the other salt, then), ascorbic acid (vitamin C [a preservative]), monopotassium phosphate (fertiliser, food additive [yet another source of toxins sanctioned by the FDA], fungicide).

Yet another American pseudo-food that flatters taste but feeds not.

I am offended, which means absolutely nothing. Just don’t buy it, if you don’t like it. I get it.

The same could be said about all that offends you, or anyone – If you don’t like it, don’t buy it, don’t look at it, don’t listen to it.

Just because you’re offended, though, doesn’t mean you’re right.
