Tesco sell rice at 1p

Yes they do indeed sell rice at 1p per kilogram.  Not to everybody.  But to me they did sell a 4 kilogram bag of rice for just 4p!

Why?  Because they had made a mistake on their weight comparison in the (very) small print on the shelf label.  It clearly said (when I had my glasses on) 1.0p per kg.

I have put a page up about it on the Toxic Drums web site and included the receipt for those doubting Thomases amongst you.


  1. Perchance it was rice from Fukushima?

    PS: Word verification = Malus ;-)

  2. Yes they do indeed sell rice at 1p per kilogram.

    I have no idea what that means, I'm a fucking American.

  3. Hello BBC
    I'm not a fucking Englishman - much to my consternation and despair. So well done on that account and long may you remain so.
    I understand that being an American you might not understand so let me explain; A kilogram is a unit of weight.

  4. As for your second comment and the "THIS IS INTERESTING" link:
    Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.
    Talk about getting the horse before the cart!

  5. I know what a kilogram is, it just means noting to me being as we fight learning the metric system.

    When my ancestors came here and killed a bunch of injuns to have their own country it seems they also came up with their own weight and measurement systems just to thumb their nose at England while they was dumping their fucking tea into the Boston Bay.
