Queen guitarist Brian May shared a new photo on his Instagram page and shared the Salt & Shake product of the famous potato crisps company, Walkers.

Here is Brian’s long statement:

“SO let’s talk trivia. Like how everyone has to start a discourse with “so” these days? How long has that been happening? I’m sure it wasn’t everybody’s habit 10 years ago. And instead of saying “he said…” or “I said…” we all feel compelled to say “he’s like …” or “I’m like …” or nobody under 30 understands what we’re saying. So I’m like … how did the English language become so corrupted and impoverished?

But there is good news. I don’t regard my Instagram account as a place to advertise, but I have to celebrate the enterprise of Walkers in reintroducing the blue salt packet in crisps. It seems to me that so many of the innovations of the 21st-century are put there to take away our choices and force us all into a behavior that makes money for someone.

With these salt shaker packets of crisps, once again we actually have the option of putting salt on our food or not. This is the way it was when I was a kid. You got your packet of Smiths crisps, unsalted, and in the packet was a little blue waxed paper twist, containing salt which you could either shake into the contents of the bag or NOT.

I really enjoy exercising my choice in different ways every day with these excellent healthy snacks! 😋 So the choice is a GOOD thing, right? 💥💥💥💥

Except when it interferes with somebody else’s right to exercise choice. Right? That’s when it gets tricky. But in this case, I think we are safe. And I enjoy the fact that Walkers have paid homage to the original in the design of the package, and in the credit to our old friends Smith’s. Enjoy exercising your choices today, folks Bri.”
