I’ve just eaten a plateful

I’ve just eaten a plateful of pork spare ribs in fivespice sauce. Tasty.
But I’ve also just had one of those life-enhancing moments when a great truth has been revealed to me…..namely, spare ribs are the most pointless food ever. Any food that is around 75% bone has to be of questionable value. It certainly is a pain to eat the damn things, especially if you plan to eat them without covering yourself and every nearby horizontal and vertical surface with whatever sauce they are covered in.
So, I have decided. I intend never to eat spare ribs again.
Don’t get me wrong – kudos to Waitrose for selling very good, tasty spare ribs. But in future, I want my meat in convenient slabs, thank you.
