People Are Divided After Chinese Food Declared Britain's Favourite Takeaway
Seriously, it's like that bloody crisps debate all over again.
Basically, Channel 5 put out a show that asked the British public what they wanted to order in on those nights when you simply can't be arsed to cook.
It shouldn't even be this difficult, either. Not only did Chinese takeaway win the vote on Britain's Favourite Takeaway - if you'll excuse the completely intention pun - it battered everything else.
In the end, it got nearly a quarter of the whole vote. That's a decent winning margin.
Way back in second place was the Indian takeaway and good old-fashioned British Fish and Chips finished in a distant third.
Trailing behind them was pizza and burgers. Retreating into the distance we had kebabs and fried chicken.
As we've established now after years of political back and forth, the British people simply don't know what they want. One thing that they do want is to shout and bawl about what they the other people want because it's not exactly what they ordered.
Interestingly enough, there were a few outliers that you might not expect to appear on the list. For example, bagels were in 11th place and jacket potatoes made the top 20.
How the fuck is a bagel a takeaway piss off channel 5

Where are these barbarians that are dialling up somewhere to order a baked potato?
Anyway, as you can probably imagine, much of Britain's ire about this list has been taken out all across Twitter. Some folk are demanding a recount, some are arguing that the vote was rigged, or in some way unfair to their particular type of takeaway.
It's only a matter of time before someone suggests that we ban takeaway all together until we can agree on one we all like.
It's all kicking off in our house because Channel 5 have not put curry as the number 1 takeaway.

Channel 5 are turning this into something of a speciality, actually. You'll remember that they kicked up a storm after declaring Walkers, Doritos, and Pringles the UK's favourite type of crisps.
They've also been trying to decide whether pineapple belongs on pizza.
It does, since you've asked. In a real democracy people can have whatever they want on their pizzas.
I'm expecting my twitter feed to be filled with people having a pop about Channel 5's Britain's Favourite Takeaway. If it ends up being Pizza and you agree then you're getting blocked!

Well, expect anchovies - we're not monsters, after all.
Anyway, Chinese takeaways aren't bad, Indian takeaways are fine too, even the folk who voted for sandwiches have a point.
However, we should organise a march from Sunderland to London to stop people from ordering takeaway jacket potatoes.
