Chocolate manufacturers have been told to re-brand their fun sized confectionery range the more appropriate name of…disappointingly-sized.
For decades, children everywhere have been gratefully accepting the miniature versions of Mars, Milky Way, and Snickers on the basis that it’s better than nothing.
But Minister for Honesty, Peter Thape believes that an average human child would consume eight fun-sized bars if left alone. Thape wants the product renamed to help children prepare for the imminent distress caused by just one bar.
‘It’s essentially a form of abuse; one fun sized bar is merely teasing the child. It’s very far from fun,’ said Thape.
‘And just for the record, a family sized chocolate bar should be renamed…Normal,’ added Thape.
