This story on the BBC website had me chuckling so I thought I’d share it with you:
An Australian publisher has had to pulp and reprint a cookbook after one recipe listed “salt and freshly ground black people” instead of black pepper.
I think it’s a bit crazy that all these books had to be pulped over what was, after all, just a “silly mistake”. I can’t help wondering, though, if there would have been the same fuss if the recipe had listed “salt and freshly ground white people” or even pink people or green people.
What do you think about it? Please comment.
