it's a chocolate thursday

mr vetty says i am heading the way of augustus gloop from charlie and the chocolate factory... really? that's arfing fantastic... i must be off to swim in a chocolate river...


no doyle, he means you're chubby and need to lose 3kg's...  we need to see your ribs... oh! whilst pondering my plight on b & c's chocolate coloured sheet i thought i would share some disturbing news...


so before anyone reaches for that cadburys chocolate bar...


or makes themselves a chocolate milo milk drink


you need to spare a thought for this guy... the orang utan... 


you see lotsa foods contain palm oil and they think it may only be 10 years until this guy is extinct... stink! his home in the rainforest is being cleared at the rate of 300 football fields per hour to make way for oil palm plantations... bad! (pee ees - click on the stink word if you wanna learn more) b said we should all be responsible shoppers... so she threw out all the bad stuff including all the chocolate stuff... aaaaaaarf b... you do realise this post is meant to be about the colour chocolate it's so not meant to be about that stuff with the nasty palm oil that i am not allowed to eat cos it's really, really bad for me... 

(pee ess - to view more about canine taboos go here to national geographic)

talk about seizing an opportunity, sometimes you and c are just too much... but i love ya to bits!

blue's declared next thursday is gonna be pink...

Ooh, my mom is staying away from chocolate b/c she's trying to eat healthy. We're glad there's another good reason.

I hope your ribs are found soon. Having to cut back on food is just not right.

Thanks for the heads up!!! I am going one step further and writing letters to the companies that use palm oil...

A very fine brown post - fun but informative.
The facts about the orang utan is awful - will be watching for palm oil products now and boycotting them.

Love, pats & pets

That was good information. Oops I already posted all kinds of chocolate cakes. I will be aware of the palm oil now.

I try to stay away from chocolate too, but sometimes it sneaks into my house! I enjoyed reading your post. I actually leaned a few things.

Your adoreble! I can't have chocolate, unless its a chocolate covered raisin...for some reason I can have those but not too many.
Yes, my daddy ropes, and he helps the bronc riders off their horses, and he ropes the bulls and pulls them out of the arena (when they will not go on their own)...he is a certifiable real cowboy from Oklahoma. I will have more stuff later from rodeos....I will come back and see how you are doing too.

It's not just palm oil which is bad about chocolate, either. Did you know that most of it comes from the Ivory Coast, where they use child slave labour? It's enough to put you off your chocolate, for sure, even can handle the theobromine!

By the way, you could have chosen a picture with a bigger Johnny Depp in it! Sheesh!
