    I hope they do.

    UK: 1 tonne
    Germany: 500 Billion tonnes

    Nah, don't think so, for a start it's ******* expensive here plus they have Maggi which tastes much the same
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    You mean loads of countries have an equivalent of the disgusting Marmite?

    Yup. Bloody copycats. Trying to outdo the Brits again.

    Although "Paprykarz Szczecinski" is in a class of its own. Contrary to some Bremainers, mixing it with Marmite and spreading the resulting goo on a croissant is not a good example of how multiculturalism can improve the quality of one's life. (Unless you are constipated.)
    You're awesome! Get yourself a t-shirt.

    Not really, Maggi is a sauce which you put in stews or your soup. It just tastes like Marmite a bit. A lot of restaurants will have a bottle on the table with the ketchup. I love Marmite me but every German I've tried it on has said it's disgusting (they say the same to pickled eggs as well...strange people)

    This is where I agree with the German people.

    Though at uni I did enjoy terrorising Europeans with baked beans....

    Then they're idiots and are either blind or in complete denial about the sh*tstorm unfolding before their very eyes.

    They can continue to convince themselves it'll all be okay. It's quite cathartic to do that, helps to take the pain of the reality (of brexit) away, I believe.
