The Latest in Moronic Manvertising

Man Chips.  SRSLY. McCoys need to get someone to lend them a clue.

Dear People Perpetuating this Meme

The sentiment may be lovely, but accuracy matters.  Accuracy is the basis for trust and so for authority.  Checking facts is what stops you from looking like a schmuck.

Size zero was invented in the early 1990s in response to vanity sizing.  Thus Marilyn Monroe did not say this unless  she is a zombie or a head in a jar.

Dear female reality show participants

It's on the inside.
I would just like to point out that the external parts of your lower, front torso are not now, nor have they ever been, your vagina.

You do not shave it, it does not have camel toe, it cannot be seen while you are standing upright, even if you are completely unclothed.

The area you are thinking of in these cases is referred to, depending on how much territory you are trying to cover, as the mons (entire area), pudenda (front cleavage) or vulva (entrance).

Fortunately Adsense dropped me long ago--or this would have done it.

Simple is Best

I developed a serious white cheddar popcorn habit when I was living in Vancouver. So I was glad to get some samples of Smartfood's new stuff.*

The cinnamon popcorn was pretty good. But along with the hummus chip flavors they did seem a lit bit... unecessarily complicated.

I mean, Buffalo cheddar? Is that really a flavor? What on earth is the difference between "popped corn" and "puffed corn" (the make both--they look the same). And don't even start me on "granola corn".

But they still make the classic that got me through a cold Canadian winter.  (Cheddar, popcorn, perfect). So I guess that's okay.

*I got the free samples from Bzzagent

G Fuel, no thanks

Gamma Labs usually makes sports supplements but apparently they wanted to get into the energy-drinks-for-slobs market.

Or as they put it: "we are a sports nutrition based company dedicated to providing athletes and the fitness community with ... supplements [but] with the PTF becoming so popular within the gaming community and with energy drink consumers, we felt it was time to develop a newer product to suit ALL our customers' needs"

I decided to ask for a free sample to try to see if it is better than my usual 3 O'clock Pepsi.  The answer is... no.  The powder produced a day-glo red liquid and the taste was vile.  Imagine a combination of 4-5 original recipe Dramamine tablets dissolved in Hawaiian punch-flavored Kool-Aid.

My focus seems not at all improved due to the aftertaste actually causing a persistent nausea.  I am off now to buy a Pepsi in the hope that it will wash the horrendous taste of this stuff away.
