The Greatest Complaint Letter Ever Written

From livid Virgin Atlantic passenger Oliver Beale to Sir Richard Branson, regarding his in flight meals and entertainment. Here's a snippet:

Well, answer me this Richard: What sort of animal would serve a dessert with peas in?

and one more . . .

Now I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking it’s more of that bhaji custard.
I admit I thought the same too, but no. It’s mustard, Richard. MUSTARD.
More mustard than any man could consume in a month.
On the left we have a piece of broccoli and some peppers in a brown, glue-like oil, and on the right the chef had prepared some mashed potato.
The potato masher had obviously broken and so it was decided the next best thing would be to pass the potatoes through the digestive tract of a bird.
Once it was regurgitated, it was clearly then blended and mixed with a bit of mustard. Everybody likes a bit of mustard, Richard.

Full letter, with accompanying photographs here. Hats off to Oliver Beale, who deserves a major award for having crafted one of the funniest letters ever written.
