Nine.com.au has a propensity to both report puerile rubbish and post articles without working links, especially regarding food, but has now managed to combine the two with today’s episode of gross incompetence.
Earlier today they had an item stating that Woolies had discounted their hams by $10 each this Xmas.
No mention that they do this every Xmas, normally starting with the full leg hams and then extending it to include the half leg hams.
However, the link was inoperatine and the article has now disappeared from their homepage, but don’t be disappointed as I have found an even more idiotic one from last year.
Woolworths and Coles sell half-price Christmas ham amid pork shortage -Kidspot.
"But thankfully, there might just be a silver lining to the situation.
Due to the shortages, retailers needed to make sure that people didn’t just simply decided not to buy a ham for Christmas this year.
So they have slashed prices in an effort to win over customers… and its working.
Woolworths has taken $10 off the price of their half-leg of ham – which now costs just $9 per kilogram, instead of the usual $19.
Coles has also followed suit, matching its rival’s price exactly. But you better get in quick, with both supermarkets already reporting that hams are flying off the shelves."
Anyone recall ever seeing $19/kg leg hams?
Way back when I went to school, one person in my class wanted to be a journalist and was actually offered a position with the local rag before he completed Senior which he accepted but he had to complete high school at night classes.
I seriously wonder if these muppets even went to school.
