As seen on TV @ 03:21 am

Current Mood: confused confused
Current Music: the dulcet tones of Ronco

I took some valerian root about forty-five minutes ago; it made me feel goofy but not all that tired. While flipping late-night TV channels (hoping to be bored into sleep) a commercial began, "Do you love pancakes? But hate all the flipping mess?" I kept on expecting it to turn into some sort of fake ad, but... it was real.

I'm sure this has to be postmodern in some fashion, but I have no idea how. I also fear for people who can't flip a pancake.

It's been over 3 years now since they've introduced those clear jars of Campbell's soup -- aimed at those who "love soup but" hate having their efforts foiled by that complicated, nasty "add water" business.

You know I always just skipped that "add water" part, I found I liked the soup "stronger"…but then maybe I'm just a freak…or terminally lazy.

Me no fear

That's okay. Most of the "product reviews" I've seen say this spiffy new tool won't flip a pancake worth anything. All the batter sticks to it, it takes phenomenally long, and doesn't cook said cake evenly at all.

But look how it slices through a tomato afterwards!

and i quote:

experience orgasm upon hearing the word 'pancake'
reflexively belt out the chorus of 'come on, eileen' upon reaching climax?
things to consider: family brunches, breakfast at IHOP"
-from the always entertaining "would you rather" by heimberg and gomberg

can you guess which one i chose?

The best thing I recently saw on this vein is the "Butter Butler"

It'a a sort of extruded square syringe with a slit at the business end, just big enough for a stick of butter.

You squeeze the thing and your butter comes out in a ribbon.

It advertises over 10 feet of butter...
