I'm not sure that cake would be good for the poors.

For your delectation from these lands of Economic Darwinism, where we are learning that, golly willikers, we are all FEELING THE PAIN!!
We have Shelley Bridgeman's column in which Shelley, who may or may not actually exist, pushes towards the Poe's law boundary as she struggles with the dreadful choice of what groceries to dump when she is caught short at the checkout. There is even a flash of humanity for the poors. Ha ha just kidding, she may not be so horrible to them when they are slow at the checkout. This new appreciation may last for a week or so , who knows?
Twitternz, have had a bit of a laugh, bit of a joke at Shelley's annoyance and opinion is divided as to whether or not she is a real person or someone writing "for exposure".

I had to google Shelley Bridgeman to see who she is (reading the Herald in paper form is usually enough "news" for me) - have you seen this reaction to her columns? http://tumeke.blogspot.co.nz/2011/05/nz-heralds-latest-unbalanced-middle.html

What a surprise to have to think about money instead of just pour it out. And people HAVE to think about it! Imagine!
