Funny or disturbing?

Here is a link to a BBC article regarding the taxable status of Pringles, which is apparently more of a biscuit really, not a potato crisp. I like the part where the company describes its features as "not found in nature". Is this something to admit to?

That is just... wow. I can't believe that British tax laws mean that potato chips, which, while not exactly healthy, aren't that bad... I mean, it's potatoes fried, with salt - not much processing there, for the most part - anyway, so potato chips are taxed, but their nasty little CAKES aren't??? Those things are SO packed with preservatives and nasties and they've got all kinds of non-food ingredients and crap in them. Ugh. No wonder Jamie Oliver has such an uphill battle on his hands.
