Limerick New Year Resolutions 2010

Denmark what are you thinking of…

Maybe disaster for the great Danish people…marmite could be banned

Its against civil liberties to ban marmite
But Denmark may consider such action right
We would not ban bacon rashers
So don’t be marmite bashers
The lovers of the stuff know how to fight!

Kebabs Poetry

A bit of Shakespeare

He would not eat a doner, but he loves marmite.

I think if Shakespeare would have been around now he may have written something like this…

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer’s lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimm’d;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance or nature’s changing course untrimm’d;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade
Nor lose possession of that fair thou owest;
Nor shall Death brag thou wander’st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou growest:
Let us have kebab with lettuce and tomato for our tea,
But not the elephant leg type, that is not for me.

Elsewhere in another sonnet he waxes lyrical about marmite…

But wherefore do not you a marmitier way
Make war upon this bloody tyrant, Time?

In this quote I think Shakespeare is suggestin marmite consumption can keep you looking young.

Probably The Ultimate Feeling

In my mind there is a bit of a fight,
Deciding the best of flavours that delight,
After a quick test,
I think that the best,
Is the combination of cheese and marmite.

The Best Feeling In The World

Some pleasures on reflection are slight,
But there is one thing that causes delight,
And that is to lob,
Into my gob,
Some toast spread thickly with marmite.*
