Asparagus roll queries . . .
Re: Bomb scare.
I always enjoy the detail of our local paper. Over the holiday period one can ruminate over detail that you don't normally have time for. I have been mulling over the fact that police handed out asparagus rolls to those trapped outside the Gisborne airport. It raised for me many unanswered questions that could well warrant investigative reporting.
Who made the rolls? Was someone out the back of the station cutting the crusts off the bread? Or were they outsourced? Was there a glut of asparagus at LeaderBrand? It is not spring asparagus season, so were they tinned? Were the young people keen on the asparagus rolls? Who was it who thought they might be? If this happened in the South Island I expect there would have been cheese rolls. It comes close to being a healthy snack as opposed to the Air NZ offering of pizza. Can we expect to see more of these culinary offerings in any incident that the police are involved with? Snacks to accompany breathalyser tests would be nice . . . But I do prefer a sausage roll in the winter.
Better work stories everyone.
Love it, Gizzy Police.
