Blog: The goose is still slim, okay?

Catherine Sleep | 17 September 2004

I opened my weekly rag today to be confronted with a double-page spread of local pubs and restaurants advertising their Christmas menus. For heaven’s sake, it’s only September!

The second shock related to an advert for a “Four-course festive menu” in which the fourth course comprised, er, coffee and mints. Since when does a cup of coffee and an After Eight constitute a course?

Ebenezer Scrooge himself would be impressed. Let’s have a bit more honesty in advertising, pretty please. And no more Christmas ads until November.

Bah humbug.
