Facebook ad spotted this evening:
Sorry if you can't read it, here's the text "Know a girlfriend at work who drinks too many sugary beverages? Become a fan and report her to the Water Police and win great prizes!" Fans are encouraged to take photos of workmates who breach the "Laws of Water" and shame them publicly on Facebook. The VQPD will pick favourites and then conduct "Office Raids" at which "your colleague will be reprimanded, taped off, photographed and given great Vita Quench prizes..." The dobber-inner gets something called a "hydration pack" too. No doubt this involves lots of the powdery mix thingies, sorry "vitamin enhanced hydration in a simple sachet" that Vita Quench sell.
I'm going to pre-empt the "you feminists have no sense of humour" bingo square by stating clearly that I do get that this is supposed to be a joke. But it does form part of a larger body of diet policing, particularly towards women, and it should be seen as part of that context. Dislike. Intensely.
