8th Mar 2004 If Berri V fruit juice is the antidote for pizza, doesn't it follow that pizza is the antidote for Berri V fruit jiuce? View large

Dear Sir,

Your advertisement shows a pizza box with the warning:

CAUTION: If swallowed immediately
drink a glass of Berri Multi-V.

Well, my chances of getting Mrs Newbery, she who controls the shopping, to purchase a pizza are on the abysmal side of remote. You would have a better show at spotting one of our political leader's doing something compassionate.

However, I see a glimmer of hope. I reckon I could swing it that I get Mrs N. to purchase some Berri Multi-V. That is likely to get past the dietary SWAT team that so regularly gives me a smack on the wrist. The wrist that would be holding pizza if such a thing was to be found in boiled chicken, cottage cheese and lettuce kitchens of Chez Newbery.

Now, what I need from you is confirmation of the reciprocosity factor, the one that says that, just as a glass of Berri Multi-V is the antidote for pizza, then pizza must also be an antidote for Berri Multi-V.

Can you see where I am going here? I think I can swing it for Berri Multi-V to be on the shopping list and if I were to drink a glass and then fall to the ground clutching my throat and waving a prescription for two slices of super supreme...

Are you with me on this?

Yours in desperation,

J. Cosmo Newbery.
