mars bar

    The Official Belief System of the World Cup?

    I’ve just bought a Mars Bar which is labelled “Believe” instead of “Mars” (though still in the standard typography). Apparently this means that I am to “believe” that England will win the World Cup. This, presumably, will make it so.

    Of course, I neither believe nor hope such a thing; by the logic of Mars, then, it won’t happen. Sorry.
