"Holy Kendall, I farted in my girlfriend's mixing bowl and now she's mad at me. What do I do?
I know. I'll send her posies from 12 kabillion miles away!"


Now, there's a visual - "Hey, babe, check this out!" - braaaapppp! "You a-hole! I'll never use that mixing bowl again!"

I guess the weirdest shipment I ever got was back in the nineties when I bought online a CD of Alien from someone in Russia. It took a month to arrive and I suppose it was a boot, but the CD itself looked professional. The cover was not original and was an artist's rendering of a humanoid wearing a leather facemask with zipper openings and sticking out an Alien-looking tongue.

Trader Joe's Organic peas come from Denmark. What the hell they got in Denmark that makes peas so damned special?

My gas came from America, and it's called Freedom Gas. Where's Solium science thread about this new molecule called "freedom"?

Now if you excuse me, I have to go puke in red white and blue, as I'm very patriotic.

Best part is we're exporting Freedom Pollution and it actually is FREE!

I learned about the product called "Fiji Water." It really is water, from Fiji.

Some nimrod goes halfway across the planet and brings us back water. Hmmm.....

What's next, cans of oxygen from Mars?*

*Betcha quarter Solium is first in line to get some of these. smile

Ha, well we in the UK fell for it for years, bottled water from France: Perrier/Evian/Volvic, like we don't have enough water in this Island.

Oxygen on Mars only makes up 0.174% of the atmosphere. It's rarer than gold and diamonds!

All the more reason to try to sell it to some idiot who inherited too much money and too little brains.

Stop rounding up in your scientific posts, Solly. It makes us look like amateurs! smile

Can you believe it? All this American ingenuity pouring out of our ears and we can't make toilet paper.

Also, my dried apricots come from Turkey*. Both are about a zillion time zones away, but oil is sooooo cheap that we don't think anything about it.

Oil is so cheap, what'll I bet you G.L. Kendall will innovate and be the first to film his sci fi adventure thingy IN OUTER SPACE.


First they give you a virus which leads to a run on toilet paper then they cleanup by supplying the toilet paper.

I saw some pre-popped popcorn in the break room. I looked at the bag it was sold in. The popcorn came from Minnesota.

It's apparently sooooo much of an effort to pop popcorn*, and I guess enough-in-demand, that not even a manufacturer locally can keep up. We have to send for help from 2 time zones away. Then package and ship it here.

Wow.

*(All it takes is a pan, a lid, and a heat source. You don't even need oil!)

I can't imagine why more people aren't making a living using their kitchen pots to pop and bag popcorn and then peddle it door-to-door. With the savings on shipping costs alone, they could undercut this competitor from Minnesota. Of course, if by some chance you do want to turn a profit on the endeavor, you better be prepared to do it at scale with 2000-gallon popping vats and truckloads of popping corn.

Did your toilet paper have bamboo in it? Because as we all know from Arizona MAGA, if there is bamboo, that's a SURE sign of the Chinese...

Well, my latest pack of toilet paper also came all the way from China, but at least it's made from (quickly-renewable) bamboo and not (slowly-renewable) trees.

Doesn't it scratch if you go in rough?
