Marmighty thinking

So I know I'm 9 years late but this is pretty good. Edward De Bono, originator of the phrase 'lateral thinking' and general all round genius, proposed the solution to all conflict in the Middle East- marmite!

The thinking went like this:

1) A lack of zinc makes people irritable and angry.
2) Zinc is normally produced by yeast.
3) The bread in the Middle East is unleavened. This means there is widespread zinc deficiency.
4) Marmite contains lots of zinc.
5) Marmite will make people less irritable and angry. Hence, ship out marmite to the Middle East.



And I thought marbutter was a little obscure.
