Taste test

I am watching ESPN, and a commercial for Cheez-Its just aired.

You’ve probably seen it.

Scientists are testing cheese to make sure it is mature…because only aged cheddar goes into Cheez-Its.

I don’t know.  The immature cheese sounds like a lot more fun.  I think it would taste better, too.

These are the important issues that occupy my big brain.

Egg drop

And coming from an egg, that means a lot.

Thanks for dropping by!

When it rains…

morton salt

Television news anchors will be reciting Morton Salt‘s famed slogan “When it rains, it pours” ad nauseam tonight after a wall collapsed at a plant outside Chicago, spilling salt all over cars in an Acura dealership next door.

More surprising?

Within minutes, two separate delivery trucks carrying lemons and bottles of tequila crashed into that very same lot.

No one was injured, but many people were reportedly smashed.

 

 

Good grief

My sister and I came across these pumpkins for sell in the Chelsea Market here in New York City:

great pumpkin

We were both blown away by the price, especially for ‘great pumpkins’ that clearly ranged in size and weight.  (I’m pretty sure Linus would bemoan the blatant consumerism as well.)

How much would giant pumpkins go for in your neck of the woods?

Chew on this

Does chewing gum make you more attractive?

Beldent Gum conducted a social experiment and concluded that yes, in fact, it does. Take a look below.

Sorry, Beldent. It wasn’t the gum that made the chewing twin the more attractive choice. It was the total lack of animation on the carbon copy’s face!

The gum chewing twin was making eye contact with the study participants and had facial movements — all signs of life. The other was stoic, corpse-like, and a bit unnerving.

So, don’t increase production at your factory just yet, Beldent. (Although I’ll admit, this whole thing is a really good ad.)

Southern comfort

You don’t know or appreciate the mother’s milk that is iced or hot tea…

kermit tea
…but that ain’t none of my business.

I know I am a little late to this meme, but I had to take a shot.

Green thumb

Did you put a zucchini on your neighbor’s porch today?

lf you’re a gardener, today was a national holiday devoted to casting off the excess veggies from your harvest.

So I hope you paid it forward…

In produce.
