So you all heard the news about the aliens that landed, shot Tony Bliar, fired Shrubya into the sun and revealed the secret of eternal life? Well, I would provide a link to that but frankly it pails in comparison to the truly shocking news of the day: Smarties sweets swop round tube for hexagonal design. Some of the readers comments treat this news with the seriousness it demands...

This is a disgrace! I suggest we organise an immediate boycott of all Nestle products.

Heh heh heh.

This is utter blasphemy! The Smarties tube is a classic, and has been an integral part of my - and no doubt many other people's - childhood. Nestle are making a huge mistake.

It's disgraceful. It's about time that the government introduced some form of protection for things like this, like we have for listed buildings. Smarties tubes are a small but lovable part of our culture and they need to be protected!

We won't be able to collect all the letters printed on the ends of the tubes any more! I only need Q to complete the set!!

Quite simply the worst catastrophe to befall modern man. Don't do it, Smarties!!

Wait, you don't think they are being sincere do you?
