Euromyth: Bombay Mix to be renamed

Tuesday, July 18th, 2006

The Sun, 18 July 2006, p27
Nutty EU officials want to rename Bombay mix Mumbai mix – to make the snack politically correct. They say the Indian city of Bombay has been called Mumbai since 1995 so the old name could offend because it dates back to colonial rule.

Any suggestion that the EU would get “mixed-up” in renaming this or any other snack is completely ludicrous.  You couldn’t make it up could you? Well, The Sun did.
