A segment of orange!

Once a week or so I take the opportunity to relieve myself of the chore of making sandwiches for lunch, and pop into a local Tesco's for one of theirs. I also purchase a small bottle of orange juice, if the choice is available I pick the one that contains “juicy bits”
But, are the juicy bits, real bits of shredded orange bits, or bits of artificial bits. If they are bits of artificial bits instead of real bits of juicy orange bits, then there will be a bit of a bit product description issue. Which could mean a bit of a problem for Tesco's if someone got the bit between their teeth and challenged the veracity of the bits. 
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

I bet you lay awake all night thinking that one up Tongue
Be interesting to see the look on the check-out girls face if you confronted her with that one though. She may just fall to bits.

Re: A segment of orange!

If the ingredients say 100% orange, there is your answer? Huh

A'hem, aidewoo, you're not quite entering into the spirit of this are you?

Re: A segment of orange!

Know how you peel Santiago. As the great Douglas Adams once said:
“Life is like a grapefruit. Well, it's sort of orangy-yellow and dimpled on the outside, wet and squidgy in the middle. It's got pips inside, too. Oh, and some people have a half a one for breakfast.”
I actually overheard a conversation between two cartons of orange juice in the co-op today. One said to the other "I wish you'd be quiet for a bit, I'm trying to concentrate."

Re: A segment of orange!

To have with my Tesco orange juice (without the fake bits) I was boiling two eggs for breakfast. I heard one say " it's so hot in here" The other one said "think this bad, wait till you get out he'll smash your head in with a spoon"
