Never mind that Dihydrogen Monoxide stuff, here's the latest eco-horror.... A landfill supervisor urges that this theobromine laced substance not be placed in regular landfills because of the toll it takes on animals. Yet it can be freely bought by children.....

I have a dog, so I knew it was chocolate as soon as theobromine was mentioned. Is the National Post having a slow news day?

No, it was an editorial. There hasn't been a slow news day in Canada for quite some time.

A toddler so adorable that Anne Geddes herself wouldn't know how to photograph it could spontaneously burst into flames every time I go to eat some chocolate, and all I'd do is find a more secure place so the protestors couldn't get me.

Heh. dong_resin, you crack me up...

Next week: Bananas: the yellow menace.

I think I'm going to sign all of my blog postings that way from now on. Either that or it could be a new Metafilter tagline: "MeFi: The New #006699 Menace"

Anyway, who the hell throws chocolate in the garbage? Chocolate's not the sort of thing you waste!

an article was run in the vancouver sun yesterday about this. It was on the front page too. I guess people get bored of hearing about the nurses/transit strike which is mentioned on at least 3 pages.
Supposedly about 20 seagulls died because of this. NOT THE SEAGULLS!
