Is this really a news worthy story? theres 1 minute of my life I'll never get back, not to mention the 3minutes its taken me to discuss it on geekzone.

Subway management has told stores nationwide to use less cucumber until supplies are restored.

Six-inch subs will now get two slices of cucumber instead of three, and foot-longs will get four instead of six.

I hate cucumber so I'm all for saving them. They should all be set free again.

Cucumbers are disgusting anyway, I hope they get diseased and die out completely.

The Herald should run another story: "Subway stores fail to follow cucumber inforcement rules"




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

This is more worthy of Target - they could setup hidden cameras in Subway stores and then rate them. "Very sloppy applying of the cucumber, and our expert says there should only be 2 slices, and not the 3. What were they thinking? They respond..."

I was wondering the same thing.

If you get less, shouldn't you pay less?

Perhaps they'll take a lead from courier companies and instead of a fuel surcharge add a "cucumber price index" into their pricing.

I would love to get a free cucumber, I hear they are very valuable at the moment :)

Isnt that rule a bit......wait for it.......cumbersome?




For billions of years since the outset of time, every single one of your ancestors survived, every single person on your Mum and Dads side, successfully looked after and passed onto you life.  What are the chances of that like?

I have to laugh when people say things as benign as cucumber are "disgusting" and long for their eradication

How on earth do you deal with things that actually have a strong flavour?
