Dear Dave (again)

Here's a quango that can be axed.

Guess who?

World Cup 2010

Whether you're a dedicated football supporter, or someone who just succumbs to football fever every four years, you're bound to be glued to the TV for at least some of the World Cup.
If you're really keen, you could watch 64 matches in 31 days – that's 96 hours of football, without counting extra time or penalty shoot-outs!
Although it might feel like you're eating and drinking football, you'll need some real food and drink too. So check out our tips on how to make some healthier choices about what you’re going to eat and drink while you’re feasting on the footie.

Have you guessed who it is yet Dave?

If you're throwing a party for friends and family to watch a game, there are lots of tasty and healthy options you can tuck into as you cheer your team on. Why not serve a vegetable curry with boiled rice or a tasty chilli with plenty of kidney beans?
If it’s just nibbles, how about some tasty, healthier snacks, such as:

  • low-fat dips (less than 3g fat per 100g) with vegetable sticks, bread sticks or mini pitta breads for dipping
  • lower fat/salt crisps – compare labels so you can choose healthier varieties
  • some easy-to-eat fruits, such as apples and grapes
  • homemade plain popcorn – made in the pan from popping kernels

Starts with "F", Dave.

When you're engrossed in the game it's easy to sip your way though more than you realise. Remember that bottled beers come in different sizes, so you might be drinking more that you think.
Don’t feel pressured by those around you to drink more than you want to. Skip a round or opt for a soft drink – how about try a sparkling water with a slice of lemon or lime?

Guessed yet? Thought not.

Answer: FSA.

What do you mean you don't know what those initials stand for?

And yes your first guess was nearly right. You said: "F*cking stupid arseholes" . We said: "Food standards agency"

2/10 Could do better.


  1. This is brilliant. Now the women's magazines can do a your man makes you eat loads of fatty food during world cup so you've become fat and need to lose weight with this fab new diet.
    Makes up for the inbetween holidays' you're just fat so cry and try this diet diet.

  2. Hopefully the FSA will feel the sharp edge of the quangoaxe shortly. We can live in hope.
