    Probably one of only two people in the world, granted.

    Obviously not as it can't find a berry by that name.

    I thought it was just another version of Black rice! My wife uses the Black or Maroon rice mixed with White rice in some of her deserts.

    Even if my cognitive skills were plumbing klongdick-ian levels, I'd still stick my neck out and say that looks like rice to me.

    And a deception in the second...



    Imagine crowing about winning third price in a pate/rice/spice trade show plug.

    It really is quite pathetic how these stupid people dredge the world for perceived compliments that will bolster the fatuous and utterly deluded notion their country is nonpareil.

    It's a fucking rice variety, the same as brown rice but a different colour.

    You've clearly forgotten the 'berry' component

    There is no 'berry' component, for fuck's sake. It'a a misnomer and merely reflects the fucking slightly bloated shape of the grain that swells up after cooking.

    Your sense of humour has evaporated along with the water, it seems.

    My sense of humour has been obliterated by a succession of events that have amply demonstrated that the human species is irredeemably stupid but nowhere in the world manifests this fact more clearly than the ridiculous country in which I find myself now. And the alternatives are not much better.

    I think it's an age thing, the only amusement I can derive these days is from the grievous misfortune that might afflict those who connive at spreading this global gospel of fuckwittery.

    I can only assume whoever decided to call rice "berry" was the same douche that came up with the new "Lotus's" name.

    The drop pin that appears in the new logo signifies that Lotus's is a one-store destination for customers while the S at the end stands for "Smart'' in all aspects
    You have to wonder about the tiny minds that come up with this shit.
