After slamming Melbourne's The Duke of Wellington pub on Twitter for one of its meal offerings, journalist Adam Collins is in turn receiving a mix of supportively humorous tweets and cutting remarks. According to 9 News, Collins noticed that in addition to their house take on chicken parm, the pub menu includes a smaller version dubbed the Lady Parma.
While the manly version includes "ham, cheddar, coleslaw & chips" for $25 AUD, the feminine serving is "140 g chicken, ham, cheddar, house leaves & chips." It does cost less (it's $19 AUD), perhaps because women still earn less on average than men. This dish is clearly for ladies and not just any old woman, though, because normal women eat salad while ladies eat "house leaves" and never any more or less than 140 grams of chicken.
A number of people sided with Collins over the absurdity of the Lady Parma:
But others felt that Collins could have spent his energy on something other than indignantly tweeting:
No one, apparently, has noticed how odd it is that a meal dissimulating itself as a healthy version still comes with giant fries.
