TMI: Pringles are only 42% potato


That's something I didn't need to read over my breakfast of Cheddar Cheese Pringles.

It appeared in a brief Wall Street Journal item, which follows.


P&G's Pringles Exempt From Tax

Britain's High Court ruled that Pringles aren't a potato snack, and thus aren't subject to value-added tax.

Friday's ruling by Justice Nicholas Warren is expected to save millions of dollars for the manufacturers, Procter & Gamble Co. Justice Warren overruled a VAT Tribunal decision that Pringles should be subject to the 17.5% tax as it met the definition of "potato crisps, potato sticks, potato puffs and similar products made from the potato, or from potato flour, or from potato starch."

The judge found the Pringles were only 42% potato, and thus exempt.


Next thing you know they'll be telling us Soylent Green isn't people.

Sure, you could easily make one yourself from a coat hanger — but who's got a hanger (or the energy)?
