The burning question*: Do you lick the yoghurt foil lid or not?

It’s Monday, so let distract you from the ‘serious’ news with one of life’s REAL dilemmas. (*not really)

WE KNOW HOW you feel. The week is stretching out in front of you – and you have a lot on your plate.

So do like we do here in HQ and get stuck into a serious debate on one of life’s most pressing questions.

This week: A simple yet fiendishly brilliant poser was sent in from Ian Mac Eochagáin last Thursday. He wrote:

Do you lick the yoghurt off the foil lid, or do you throw the lid away, wasted yoghurt and all?

Obviously, we can tell by the last section there that Ian has a certain view on the issue. What’s yours?

Do you:

A. Lick the foil lid of the yoghurt, or…

B. Throw it away with the yoghurt still clinging to it?
