Some observations from my somewhat twisted mind

First, I do promise two more Top Banana posts. I never realized that I would be so busy and unemployed at the same time. Now on with this post.

Last night I had to get some items at Save A Lot. The store was almost empty so there was no one around to heart me chuckling to myself as I made a couple of observations.

First, I wanted to make some muffins for breakfast this morning, so I picked up a couple of packages of blueberry muffin mix. I noticed this on the label: "Naturally and artificially flavored with imitation blueberries." HUH? Tell me how you can naturally flavor something with imitation blueberries?

Then I walked past the freezer case. I saw this dessert that had small pieces of cheesecake, but those who packaged it weren't very nice people. The container's label said "Sara Lee Bites."

And one last observation as I took my son grocery shopping today. Now that I don't have to drive to and from Cleveland on I-77, at least for the moment, I don't give a flip about missing traffic reports during the afternoon rush hour. But I do feel that we need traffic reports in the cereal aisle in the Evin Big Box Store(tm).

Maybe they mean it this way..

"Did you flavor my muffins with fake berries?"

"Naturally."

I always liked Sara Lee. What kind of person would say that about her?

I once picked up a Kraft cheese dip that had no cheese, no milk and pretty much nothing real in it. I kept thinking... then what the HECK is this creamy white paste I'm supposed to be eating really?

ewww... I hate fake food.
