I use it to get rid of moles. Where all else fails, a small teaspoonful smeared onto a mole hill and the mole gets the message and ravages next door's garden instead.
It's also wonderful for persuading cats who like to think that my flowerbed is their favourite place to crap. Forget pepper spray and levelling that faithful M16 at 6 inches, a Marmite jar placed near the offending spot is simply enough to put the cat's nose out of joint.
And those pesky bears. Pin a copy of an order you've placed for Marmite to your bin and you'll not be pestered by bears ever again.
You have to accept it that only the animal world appreciates the true taste of Marmite.

Clearly you can be lumped along with Dave into the pot of complete fools, Marmite is nothing like the others. I on the other hand will open up my little pot of marmite and spread it on my toast for brekkie

Good news for Marmite lovers..
Every home in the UK has a jar of Marmite in the larder.
Bad news for Marmite lovers..
Most of these jars are dated pre 1954 when UK rationing ended and proper food became available.

Good point. But if you were in Australia it might be the same thing (or close) whereas Vegemite is definitely a different taste.

There are more mites than I thought...

Clearly if the name ends in "mite" it's something that a dog would have in its ears and needs to be eradicated. Promite, vegemite, marmite. No matter; they're all
