Orwell is alive and well, masquerading under the alias of Gino Vumbaca,
executive director of the Thought Police Advisory Body to the Federal
Government on Krispy Kreme® donuts. ‘Krispy Kreme®’, says he, ‘is an adult
product for a reason’, sold mainly in domestic airports, he says children should
not be exposed to them, and hence be barred from airports. ‘Abuse of Krispy
Kreme® donuts adds to the scourge of obesity that is afflicting children
throughout the world.’
Sources say Mr Vumbaca is seeking a Federal Grant to supplement the laptop programme
for schools with CCTV cameras in all precincts of schools and in domestic
dwellings that are home to one or more children to ensure parents and/or
children do not circumvent the ban.
Asked whether Krispy Kreme® should be treated any differently to any other form
of donuts, Mr Vumbaca replied he had no comment. Asked whether Krispy Kreme®
had been part of the fabric of European society for several thousand years he
responded ‘I will not put up with further questions designed to impugn the
importance of the Thought Police Advisory Body.’
His final assertion was that Krispy Kreme® sales should be restricted to
children over 50 years old.
