Death by Chocolate

The big issue in the blogosphere at the moment obviously is not Guido Fawkes vs Tim Ireland, but the matter of how best to melt chocolate. (I think it is safe to say that only in the Liberal Democrats would a pink fluffy toy melt chocolate and make a YouTube video, though the least s/he could do is sort out their stylesheet for Firefox).

All of which seems a good excuse to mention Death by Chocolate, an excellent and very funny satire by Toby Moore about a future in which fat is treated like alcohol was during Prohibition, with high-fat food being smuggled across the Mexican border into the US and underground eating places where people gorge on illicit hamburgers. I’ve never met the author but based on the one letter he’s written me, he’s a lovely man. So buy, buy, buy.

  • Must be the silliest post ever written by Mark Park. Shows he has nothing to do in the office except write mindless rubbish

  • Au contraire – the proper melting of chocolate is essential to human happiness.
