Hospital Food Deemed Not Delicious

It's a widely accepted fact that hospital food and airline food are about as bad as it gets. And if you've spent any time as a guest of the NHS lately, you'll likely be of the opinion that hospital food isn't getting any better.

James "Smurf" Smith, a 21 year old currently recuperating at Hillingdon Hospital from a shattered pelvis and broken spine, is in agreement with you. He's been so disgusted with the food he's been served during his stay that he's posted a quite disturbing video to YouTube, featuring his microwave heated (and gravity defying) macaroni cheese. He's also gone on a hunger strike to protest the lack of freshly prepared food.

We have to wonder how much time he spent playing with his food before realizing it could do aerial tricks and still stay on the plate. Judging from his video, playing with it was probably a better option that eating it.

The NHS would do well to follow their own advice:

In the busy world we live in it’s easy to eat too much of the wrong foods because they are convenient and seemingly cheaper. A healthy balanced diet can be enjoyable, cheap and easy – you just have to try it and you’ll see and feel the difference.
