Bad Food & Tasteless Comments

I bet you're wondering what this has to do with beads. Nothing at all. I was graciously sent a link to the old recipe cards for Weight Watchers. They offer a whole new perspective on why Diet is a four letter word. After having a good chuckle, I had to follow the links to all the other Bad Food and related items sites..... Six hours later........I now know why my brother calls it the World Wide Waste of Time. But I digress.

I thought I'd share the links I came across, for your amusement. I must caution you however, some of the comments are as unpallatable as the pictures. I was particularly amused by the last link and couldn't stop laughing (I used to frequent Java City). If you follow the link, be sure to read the entire page as the "Busted" link is golden. I never knew corporate America could have a sense of humor!

Actually I came to your blog on a link about tubular Ndebele instructions (I'm a beader) but then I got caught up in the blog entries, especially the Bad Food & Tasteless Comments links. I've been to some of them before - real "gag" material. This Java City one is absolutely hilarious! I enjoyed this so much. I have a blog too (http://stormrisingdesigns.blogspot.com/) but I don't think it's quite as much fun as yours. Actually you sound like someone I might be acquainted with online - someone who uses "but I digress" very often in online posts.
