image for Europe Launches Attack on Mars
Mars bars are now made in Slough

Brussels based bureaucrats have launched an astonishing attack on Mars...but don't worry we are not heading into interplanetary warfare...yet.

The Mars in question is Scotland's favourite, chocolate-based, fried food - The Mars Bar.

Euro-crats are claiming that because the chocolate bar isn't actually made in Mars (by little green men in hairnets I presume) the name of the product will have to be changed accordingly to meet with European legislation. The manufacturers of the bar, Mars Inc., are considering a few suggestions, such as;

* The Slough Bar
* The 36 million miles from Mars Bar
* The Bar formerly known as the Mars Bar
* The Not Really From Mars Bar.

Other household names likely to change under these new laws could include: The Milky Way; The Star Bar; Chicago Town Pizza; Newcastle Brown Ale, and Belgian Waffles.

What do you think - have Brussels gone too far this time?

Answers on a postcard please.......
