Food is just suppose to be food

I found this at the Consumerist, and I thought it was blog worthy.

So Burger King now have the new “BK Super Seven Incher”. Right away, I’m thinking this is not a good thing. Especially when the poster for the burger says “It’ll blow your mind away.” Also, on the lower part of the poster it starts out with. “Fill your desire for something long, juicy and flame-grilled “. Now I do not have a desire for something long and juicy; especially if it’s the Burger King’s Super Seven Incher. NO WAY. Oh and the poster doesn’t help either.

Now what I want to know is who approves these things? It’s the Saskatchewan Pork “Pork: the one you love” billboard all over again. Personally, if it were up to me, I’d create a company that consults with advertisers, and other organizations over the possibility of a double meaning in their advertisement. I believe this service is needed for executives, and politicians who are obviously out of touch with the real world.

A perfect example is the “tea baggers”. The idea was to recreate the image of the Boston tea party, but when you mention tea bagging today. It has a totally different meaning. Tea Bagging is the act of putting ones testicles onto another person’s face. Now I know this because, this was something that became popular in the video game called Counter Strike, which is a shooter type game. I’m not going into “special” bars, and witnessing this action. The point of this was that I knew what it means and the tea baggers didn’t, so now they’re thought of as a group of people who rub their “boys” in each other’s face.

Now if I had been there, this Burger King Seven Incher would not have been happening. I mean seriously, some alarms should have gone off with the poster. I look at it, and think, there’s no way, I’m going to have this sandwich. A picture of a woman with her mouth over, the long sandwich near her lips and the work BLOW underneath. Also, it doesn't help that the woman looks like a sex doll. Uggg.

I just price them. I don' use them

As I mentioned before, I have 2 jobs, the cool high paying job, and the crappy getting out of debt job. I don’t have anything to blog about with the main job but it did occur to me that there are some items I can blog about with the second job.

At the second job, I work in File Maintenance. This means I remove sale tags on shelves, and put new ones on. A simple task, and nothing to talk about except for one thing; having to place the sale tags on the “Feminine Care” products. Yes those things.

I wouldn’t mind it so much if the store was closed when I had to put the tags on there, but the store is open. I keep expecting someone to go the customer service to report “the sick and disgusting man” hanging out in that area. I mean seriously, this is not somewhere I want to be seen hanging around with.

I’ve mentioned this to a female co-worker and she teases me about it now. How, that I’ll be an expert on these products and that any future girlfriend would be grateful. I disagreed. I all come down to that one real fear that guys have when getting a phone call from their girlfriend/wife/whatever. Being asked to pick up “those things” on the way home. Seriously, if a guy does it, he might as well hand over his testicles as well, because once you do that. They belong to her.

Last week, after I also got stuck with putting the sale tags on the nylons, and the co-worker also saw me doing it, and comment “so this is your second favorite space, at least I didn’t catch you rubbing the samples on your face”. I know I’m a closet pervert, but I would never do something like that…in public. The nylons, not the other thing, that’s just creepy.

Oh the brighter side, I did make fun of her having to tag the “family planning section”, which is basically condoms.

So don’t think you can ask me which feminine product is better than the other, because I just price them. I don’t wear them.

Who greased the saddle?

I’ve been a bad blogger for some time. I did blog fade and some people went so far as to chastise me about it, and encourage me to get back to blogging. Here I go once again.

Here’s the deal. I’ve been really busy at work lately. So busy, that I have been going into work on the weekends to continue of some of the projects that I’ve been involved in. So after working at Safeway for 4-8 hours, depending on the day, I would go into the main job work on other stuff as well. That’s one of the main reasons why I haven’t been blogging.

There have been many events that have happened in the world that I could have blogged about, and yet I have remained silent.

The other problem is motivation. Sure, I start to blog, but then I find many of the post are not completed. I loose my train of though because of other things, such as work.

Actually, I find it sad that I’ve seemed to lost my passion to blog. I still fight to get that passion back, but I find it difficult. Again, it’s the lack of time.

About a month ago, a Canadian lottery jackpot was $50 Million dollars, and needless to say, I never won it, but even now I feel, that the jackpot was suppose to be MINE. I was supposed to win that money, so then I could quit my job and start enjoying life, and blogging about it. PPPFFFTTT that money was suppose to me MINE.

I think I’m just trying to find my lost blogging voice, and it’s going to take a little while before I do that, so please be patient as I struggle through future posts about things like the Wendy’s Frosty, or my perverted though.

To be honest, I don’t really have the desire to blog about naughty stuff, and my view on naughty stuff. Who know’s. Maybe I can make the Frosty interesting.
