    Stop talking. It's damaging the point I'm trying to make.

    It looks like Dickorice ejaculate.

    I will accept no further friend requests. This doesn't mean I don't love you or anything so don't be offended.

    You're just trying to bring black dicks into a completely unrelated topic.

    I think that might have been the point. (I could be wrong)

    The black stuff from the bottom of the world is obviously a superior product.

    The fact that I don't like sports, don't drink beer and don't surf has led to me being accused of being un-Australian. I am currently trying to train myself to eat Vegemite to counter this accusation but am finding it hard going.
    On the wrong side of history

    I find a similar disparity in the U.S. However, my comes from not caring about sports (I don't dislike or hate them), not drinking alcohol, not drinking Coffee, and not eating stake.

    I've been called un-American many times. That being said I rather be myself than American. I encourage you to be yourself no matter what those other Ausies think.

    I always assumed marmite became popular during the war because, marmite > starvation.

    I've also assumed no starvation = no marmite. But maybe for only 99.9999% of the population (give or take a few 9's right of the decimal).

    It was developed by a German in the 1890's. Not sure if they were starving in the Boer war...

    It was promoted as a rich source of vitamin B after vitamins were discovered in 1920 which undoubtedly helped push it's popularity along.

    I imagine this would be close to the ultimate health product.
