Unhappy Meal

‘WE love babies, but we couldn’t eat a whole one. That’s a funny old joke isn’t it?

Anorak’s range of meat-free breasts are just like the real thing

But don’t say things like that at the Rendezvous restaurant in Aberystwyth. It’s vegetarian, you see, so they don’t approve of eating flesh.

Then again, they don’t seem to be too keen on babies either. The management asked one mother to leave after she tried to feed her baby, and described the woman’s actions as “offensive”, says the Telegraph.

Hear, hear – we at Anorak are always in favour of banning babies from restaurants, but it seems that in this case it was not the feeding itself that caused offence, but the substance that the baby was given. And what was it? A jar of chicken baby food.

The mother, Sarah Graham, is astonished. “I’ve never heard anything so ridiculous in my life,” she says. “It was not as if I had brought in a whole roast chicken and started carving.”

This is a difficult one. We sympathise with the baby ban, but then Mrs Graham has a point too. In the end, we have decided to endorse the ban, on the grounds that Mrs Graham’s baby is called Joshua.’
