I read the article and felt better so perhaps it works?

It only works if you just read the first letter.

Miller Genuine Draft, despite being a homoeopathic beer, is quite an efficacious diuretic. Well, it is if you have the dread misfortune of drinking an entire case of it because there's nothing else at the party and you're young and foolish and the girl with the magnificent constellations of freckles you've tried to orbit doesn't share your celestial ambitions.

One day I will write my utterly mundane memoirs.

I'm fairly sure that they're already posting under a misleading pseudonym...
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

I think I have the ultimate homeopathic beer, a freebie from Ocado yesterday, fizzy hopped water.

I would ask if that is really a thing, but it seems so.

On a Tuesday, our canteen menu features homeopathic beef lasagna.
Yes really.
Vegans would love it.

I accidentally bought homeopathic tea. Asdal's own, I didn't expect much and get even less. Hang on, if it's homeopathic and there's less, shouldn't it be stronger? Anyway, two bags to a cup (no, Roger, not like that!) and it's... hot and brown.
A cup of tea is the perfect bridge between real life and cake.

Back before we knew any better we picked a vet who was a stark raving homoeopath. He damn near killed one of our dogs - "treated" her for an ear infection and left her with epilepsy.

Take them all out and shoot them. Not with homoeopathic bullets, either.
I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.

what does homeopathic water look like, and is it better at thirst quenching?

Classic misunderstanding. Even the first letter needs to be missing for homeopathic gobbledigook!

Ask a hydrophobe.

I am gaining much enjoy from the fact that other people use the term homeopathic beer.  My mates don't get it.

Heinz tinned soups contain only TINY quantities of the meat after which they are named. Cream of Chicken Soup is a whopping 3% chicken...

If it was labelled as milk is it would be "whole chicken".

What about those water bottles with fruit printed on them? Very nearly homeopathic but they do put a big premium on them.

Actually that's very much the homeopathy way. Expensive water isn't it!

That 'water' contained a LOT  of sugar (not at homeopathic levels) before the Sugar Tax was introduced...

The 'no added sugar' versions might contain no sugar but Volvic 'Touch of Fruit' strawberry flavour is 4.6% sugar (Sugar Tax comes in at 5%).

This is similar to half-strength apple juice.

Homeopathic drugs usually contain quite a lot of sugar and a touch of alcohol. They might also contain herbal stuff which once in a while might even do you some good, by chance. But mostly sugary alcohol. A prescription cocktail.

I wonder what colour traffic lights fruit would have if they joined the supermarket package labelling of nutritional infusion? Can you imagine the traffic light guy m for sugar on apples or grapes? Fruit would possibly have bright red for sugar.
