The healthy life
Dear Marc, have you noticed just how obsessed Brits are with organic life, or perhaps just with the word ORGANIC?
Everything here boasts of its organic origins. One brand is even called SO organic, like the world is an SNL sketch, which of course it is.
The other day I bought a soup, made by Prince Charles (a king in the kitchen).
The word organic was printed 18 times on the silly little label. 18 times. Perhaps the Brits are modern day Smurfs, who've cleverly omitted the original smurf word and replaced it with organic? I think so.
