Marmite GCSE Just Around The Corner?

The Education Minister Ed Bollocks has announced that Marmite, the love it or hate it vegetable based spread will be made part of the National Curriculum from September 2008.

'It is important that the pros and cons of Marmite is made available to our young citizens so that they can make moral judgements in relation to savoury products'

The Tories, for a change, broadly welcomed the move. A spokesman stated that 'while we welcome Marmite onto the curriculum, we will argue that there is a need to balance savoury items with sweeter foodstuffs'. As a result, the Tories will be seeking to alter any legislation by the inclusion of the 'banofee cream pie' amendment.

Marmite will be introduced initially as a subject in Secondary education with 'Double Marmite' on a Wednesday afternoon being a common feature in classes up and down the country. Primary school children will be introduced to Marmite as an optional subject but there are no plans for a STA examination into the savoury spread.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
