Ice Tax

"Glass of house red and two of house white please, Frank"

"You want the white chilled or ambient?"

"Chilled .. why? ...it's always chilled. What's new?"

"Chilled is 50p extra now. New thermal reduction tax. We're all drinking too many chilled drinks, apparently, and causing global warming. And they need more money for the windmills."

"Madness. Oh, and  a glass of water please - ambient is fine haha."

"Ice and lemon? Lemon is free, but the ice cubes are 30p each."

Nice try. But I suspect all your readers are a bit too cynical to be fooled.

I followed through to the Mail piece: extremely well done. Laugh out loud stuff.

That told me all I needed to know. Although it doesn't do to give the bastards ideas.
