Demi Moore and the heroin spoon

DEMI Moore may have read the story of Elinor Zuke, who attempted to buy a packet of teaspoons at the self-service checkout at Sainsbury’s, West Green, Crawley, West Sussex.

A shop worker told Zuke, who happens to work for The Grocer magazine, that to buy the spoons she would need to present photo identification.

Why? Well: “It was because of the risk they could be used for drugs — heroin users ‘cook up’ the drug in teaspoons.”

A photo id would ensure that the spoons would not be used to cook up smack. (Note: ensure photo id not covered in baking powder or sherbet dibdab).


What, you cry, has this to do with Demi Moore, the A-list Hollywood actress never yet seen in Sainsbury’s.

Well, the 911 call made by a friend of Demi Moore’s said the actress was  “convulsing” and “semi-conscious” after “she smoked something, it’s not marijuana, but it’s similar to … it’s similar to incense and she seems to be having convulsions of some sort.”

Who the hell smokes incense?

As Caitlin Moran notes in the Times:

You can’t just put anything you find on your mantelpiece in a fag and smoke it, like an Air Wick or a clock or something. Really, if you want to obliterate the pain of a failed marriage, you’ve got to stick to established substances, like Cadbury’s tinned Chocolate Sponge, or heroin.

Pass the photo id, Demi…
