Why the Inter-Net is here to stay

Bought a card game on eBay (Fluxx - I'm a geek about games as well), and it arrived in a little cardboard box today:


Then I opened it up and started admiring my purchase... but the opened box caught my eye. It was much more colorful than I was expecting.


Yup, that's a generic pop tart box (blueberry) that the Inter-Net businessman turned inside out for shipping. Reduce, reuse and recycle, baby. Woo.

Has anyone had Our Family Toaster Pastries? I wonder if they're any good...

I'm guessing they're not very good.

But at least you didn't get a box composed of the "toaster pastries" glued together.

Slappy recently got himself a job where as far as I can tell he doesn't have to do anything, so he has a lot of free time. My job has surges -- sometimes I've got nothing to do for a few weeks, and sometimes I've got a ton to do. Actually, I'm leaving this job in three days, so I had a lot of loose ends to tie up.

Ubie: I hate to say it, but a box of toaster pastries glued together with gingerbread house icing would be 7 kinds of awesome.

Twolf: Longs Drug Store sold the best chocolate covered graham crackers I ever had. Safeway sells orange juice that will eat a hole in the engine block of a Chevy.

Jammer: Hot Pockets are not only a tasty high-fat treat, but also comedy gold.

Kendra: I've been feeling it lately. We're experimenting with a regular posting schedule, but currently chaos reigns. I promise my reign will be benevolent. Jiggs's next reign will be one of blood and vengeance. Somewhere in there Tasty will have a reign of high life.

Booty: Well, I don't know about nothing at my new job - we're in a rush to get a year-end report ready. But I work a regular shift and don't take work home with me. Leaves plenty of time to write. You're getting a new job?

wow, that is smart.
i haven't had anything pop-tart like in years. This, of course, means that I will binge on them in the next day or so.

Kat said...

People actually eat those things? Like for nourishment? At least it's not affecting his brain yet. Cause the packing idea is great.

Lee Ann said...

I think that is quite ingenious to recycle the toaster pastry box.
I doubt the generic pop tart is any good, some of the "real" pop tarts are not any good.

This kind of thing brings warm fuzzies to my little Green heart.

I heard there were Pop Tarts being served here. Snacks!

slappy said...

Spinner: I recommend the Smores pop tarts. They are fantastic.

Kat: Yes to the first question, no to the second.

Lee Ann: I agree - that's why I stick with the "candy" flavored pop tarts rather than the ones that claim to be "fruit" flavored. They all have the same nutritional content anyway.

Monkey: Your heart is green? Are you a Vulcan?

Brooke: If there was a way we could put out cheetos and pop tarts for our readers to enjoy, we would. Booty - figure out if there's a way we can do that using "javascript"
