Lettuce Rejoice!

On FB, a friend of mine put up this juicy tidbit from the Sun:

We are all about looking after our own and no-one else suddenly, and we get to be insulting and downright racist to foreigners cos we like that, but now the Spanish aren't sharing their lettuce with us! It's so unfair! How can they be so mean? They're doing it on purpose. They made that bad weather happen just to give us all scurvy. This is their revenge for the Armada!

Lettuce is hard to grow in the UK without heated polytunnels, an expensive option. So eat local produce in winter, and try to stave off scurvy by eating limes. Do we grow limes? We do not. Where do we get limes from?

Damn these foreigners, selling us their produce, giving us choice of food throughout the seasons and helping us stay healthy! Who needs vitamin C anyway? Damn them, Damn them all!

This is pretty funny.

What did they think was gonna happen once the erection of the Brexit dismantling machinery was underway?

'Thinking?' Sounds like sedition to me!
We didn't think Spain would deliberately spite us by having cold weather! But they'll be sorry!

We will not be salad starved!
We will not be broccoli blocked!
We will not be vegetable-vetoed!

Welcome to Britain, open for global business! Down with the EU, the world is queuing up to sell us aubergines and other things Sun readers can't pronounce!

Wait a minute... Aubergine... Is that a French word?

Oh My God!

Baked beans are haricot beans which come from South America which is basically Spain, in tomato sauce from tomatoes which come from Bloody Spain Again!

IT'S PRACTICALLY INVASION!!!
