Truth in Packaging

This is a FITK re-post

Sunday, May 29, 2005

I was reading my milk bottle this morning (my life is a thrill a minute!) and printed upon it was this cryptic epigram: "For optimists, dreamers and the inspired...".

It was skim milk. If ever a dairy product was uninspired and not conducive to dreaming, that would have to be the one. Maybe whey would be less so, but not by much. This led to thoughts about other products and what little aphoristic phrases could be applied to them:

Coffee- For realists, disenchanted and the uninspired...
Chocolate- For hedonists, cravers and the decadent...
SUVs- For overcompensators, megalomaniacs and the insecure...
Hot Dogs- For the indiscrimminate, greasy and omnivorous...
George W.Bush- For the narrow-minded, elitist and disingenuous...
Blogging- For optimists, dreamers and the inspired...

Blogging: The skim milk of literature?

Comica said... In Richmond, we have this bottled water called "Smart Water" that supposedly has electrolytes. It's meant to "make you smarter" and designed for anyone who has ever been called a "geek, dork, four-eyes, brain..." et al.

Just thought you should know.

Is skim milk any good? I've often wondered.

Professor Batty said...

...good? Yes, nutritionally. It's just that it is somewhat flavor-challenged, if you follow me. So how is "Smart Water", or haven't you ever had any?;-)

Comica said...

"Smart Water" unlike skim milk, is much more flavorful, if you get the flavored bottles of course. Otherwise, it tastes like regular bottled water. I suppose it's a placebo because I always feel as though I could start a computer software company after drinking a jug.

"… so what are your thoughts on soy milk?"

A classic thread hijacking.

One thing I’ve always been a little dense on is responding to comments, I never really knew why, but lately, after interacting on some forums, I’ve come to realize that many commenters don’t comprehend the post, they already have an agenda.

Comica, on the other hand, always seemed to add a dimension to the discussion with her comments.
