What's this got to do with science? [Sep. 22nd, 2005|10:26 am]
...nothing, but we thought it was silly.

Snickers Marathon bars. Presumably they're not left overs from the 1980s.

I have personally endorsed one of the other Snicker bars, but not these new-fangled "Marathon" bars. What next? Starbursts new "Muesli and Haddock Opal Fruits"?

I guess they had to phase out the old Marathon bars because it's based on imperial measurement whereas the Snicker is a race of 34.6 kilometers. The King Size Snicker is 51.5, a king size Marathon is still the same in miles, just with more comfy shoes. You'd have all the excess energy of the bigger bar with nowhere to go, your head would probably explode...

Re: Bah

Oh yeah, and the Snickers Crucher is "beyond crunchy". Lazy advertising slags, what does that mean exactly? To me it means "uncomfortably" crunchy, beyond safe limits, teeth breakingly crunchy, like chomping down on broken glass, covered in chocolate and caramel with fossilised peanut fragments. When your gums are bleeding and your teeth are shattering, then you know you're "beyond crunchy".

Re: Bah

"Beyond Crunchy" probably just means they are further away than the Crunchie bars on the shelf in the newsagent. Presumably "Crunchy" with a "y" is just a typo.
