Of Orange Slice neglected

Orange Slice

Least loved biscuit

in the Arnotts Assorted Cream family

You are always the last to remain

in that biscuit packet’s row of cellophane

When placed in the tin or Tupperware

Your pungent scent permeates the flavour of your fancy siblings:

Delta cream, Monte Carlo – even resolute Kingston

Causing eater to wince and utter “ugh”

Orange slice you are the middle child

Destined to be played by Eve Plumb

In a very assorted cream biscuit hour special

Orange slice you are not universally desired but you are needed

You are the trigger and scourge of childhood memories Australian.

I don't identify with the Orange Slice, and neither does Jeff Kennett

This is bullcrap. Orange Slice rules, MANN!

NO-one would ever buy Orange Slice, MANN.

Dear fellow nsrs, doesn't Marvin Hamlisch's tone remind you of Zaphod Beeblebrox and i can't help but conclude that MANN is his version of Belgium, which is utterly unspeakable form on MH's part.
