Warning Labels

March 16, 2009

Yesterday, for lunch, I bought myself one of those cans of Hormel chili. I must admit that, while in grad school, this was one of my staple foods (that is, until I met the Comely and Buxom and Easily Terrified and Gunshy Boudicca). I tried to recapture a little of that youthful enthusiasm for life and chemistry this weekend by buying and partaking of the Hormel chili.

I'm not sure about recapturing those things, but I will say that Hormel probably should put a warning label on their cans of chili. It should read something like "While the contents of this can are undeniably delicious, this product should be eaten and digested in a well-ventilated room."

Mercy.

Reminds me of the time I ate chili and brought it back for a second showing later that night. My mother...who doesnt do sick... cleaned up while I went to the hosp. The next day I opened my washing machine to find some clean towels she had used to clean up my...ahem "chili"...along with some nicely cleaned....um...chili!!!

Thanks Mom!!

*for those scratching their heads...yes she threw in the towels along with contents to be washed.

You know how cool it would be if everyone eating chilli had to wear one of those things? Very, that's how.

You know, we had a HUGE wind storm here in Seattle last night. I blame YOU. It's like the butterfly wing effect, I think. Mjenks let 'em rip and Seattle got hit with a hurricane. Thanks a freaking lot.

Man... I am a Gen-you-wine sucker for store bought chili.


Any of it is potent... but that one kind that comes in a box instead of a can, kinda like a juice box? That stuff will blow a Peterbilt right offa the highway, 2 counties away.


Buzzards will circle.

My son loves the Hormel chili! Especially on chili cheese dogs...he, of course, loves to torture us afterward.

Chili is one of those foods I have a love/hate relationship with.
you think everything is great while you are eating it but you later learn it comes with some baggage.
