In an informal polling at a recent lecture it was discovered, astonishingly enough, that acupuncture is more popular than Ted Drewe's frozen custard.

In response to the question, “have you had acupuncture,” about ¼ of the hands in room went up. This was followed by the question, “do you know someone who has had acupuncture,” which resulted in all hands being raised. The final question of “how many of you like Ted Drewe's frozen custard” resulted in 25% of the hands being lowered.

Conclusion: acupuncture is more popular than Ted Drewe's frozen custard. Further studies are planned.
