The precious item is "Heston Blumenthal's hidden orange Christmas pudding". So I had to Google this because I don't know this bloke at all. Celebrity chefs are some of the most useless people on the planet.
Personally, I don't care about food, I don't cook. Food is fuel to make your body function, end of story.
Strangely enough, food seems to have replaced culture, hobbies and sex in our society. If that's not dysfunctional... Weird.
So, this rather yucky-looking blob you can see on the picture is supposedly at the centre of a "Pudding Touts" crisis, i.e people go to Waitrose (where they sell at £13.99), buy in bulk and sell them on eBay for... £200! (Someone has seen one at £500 too).
Honestly, WHO on Earth would pay this amount for a bit of fat and candied fruit? Just thinking about having a bite makes me feel sick.
Some people are just snobbish, stupid and incredibly, incredibly greedy. No wonder there's an obesity epidemic!
I think therefore I write.
