You might be expecting, from the title of this piece, that I’ll be suggesting more Toady award winners should strap on a pair. They should but that’s not what I’m writing about. Today I bought a packet of mixed roasted and salted nuts from the Sikh gentleman who runs an excellent store near where I live. On the packet are printed two useful pieces of information:
REMEMBER SMALL CHILDREN CAN CHOKE ON NUTS – whether this is to encourage you to hand the contents of the packet over to small children, or discourage you, is unclear.
PACKED IN A FACTORY WHERE NUTS ARE PACKED
I’m guessing the company which writes the copy for the packaging of products sold to stores by Saki Snack Enterprises – for the product is one of theirs – has a gender diversity policy with respect to its copywriters, and Saki unluckily got one of the feminist copywriters to work on its account. What are the chances that feminists would be involved in a blog piece about nuts?
