so we were eating yummy morningstar breakfast snausages (yummy yummy) and it suddenly occured to me:
1.) Morningstar is owned by Kelloggs.
2.) Some marketroid at Kelloggs was probably given the task of coming up with a suitably hippieish name for their soy based line.
3.) That marketroid was most likely a carnivore, just going by the average statistics of marketroids that I assembled some years ago.
4.) Morningstar is another name for Lucifer, aka Satan. (aka Seitan, but that's another story.)
QED: Morningstar Farms is some carnivore's idea of a joke about soy-meats.
Well, come one. It IS the worst idea ever.
Well, come on. It IS the worst idea ever.
It would appear that I was slow in reaching the ESC key. Damn you, IBM.
Morningstar Farms was actually - now here's the funny part - started by Seventh-Day Adventists, who primarily follow a vegetarian diet. Then they got bought by someone and then they got bought by Kellog. (I knew the 7th Day part, but I wanted to check and found all this weird Christian Vegetarian crap instead.)
I would like to say that I have never known a Satanist to like Setian. It's foul shit.
Damn. Thank you for ruining another product. (Not the name -- i think it's pretty funny -- but the owner.)
Kelloggs? I thought they were pretty good as far as corporations go. :o(
They might be, as far as these things go. However, they own half the world as near as i cna tell. I have a hard time trusting anything that's bigger than i can really understand. Also, i have Issues with big names disguising themselves and friendly little granola companies in a effort to get me to give them money. But that last one, that's just me.
Hey. I heard third-hand you were at my house yesterday. How's it doin? Haven't seen much of it myself of late.
it? what's it?
well, if it relates to me, it's doin fine.
unless it's the meg, in which case she's stressin the grad school apps.
I'm taking a sick day, cause I was up til 4:30 last night with acidy tummy. unclear on why, it's pissing me off. has been doing it a lot lately.
I think I'm going to make a concerted effort to lose some of these 40 extra pounds I'm carrying around. I was fine before I put all that on.
got two new fishies in the tank, chinese algae eaters. they're funny. Tank seems to have settled down and isn't killing fish left and right anymore. that's always good.
not much else going on.
I meant the house. But i am glad to hear you're doing well, and that your fish are not dead. Do you have any advise for making the Girl's tank behave? It killed the last fish sometime last week.
So, i spent a lot of time on the bus thinking about things that are way bigger than i can really understand. Like world geography, and assorted weird little countries and landmarks. I was eventually able to picture a northern Europe clearly enough to accept that Denmark is probably real, but what about Georgia (the one near Russia, not the one near Florida)? Do you have any proof that Georgia is not some vast government conspiracy? And the Chunnel -- i mean, an international highway under the ocean? Who's gonna believe in that?
those thoughts are weird.
What if everything outside of north america is just fiction, invented by big brother?
How many of us have followed newton's footsteps to prove that the world is round? maybe the sun really does orbit the flat plain of the earth.
ever seen "the truman show?" If not, add it to your movie list. really great for pushing that thought process. ;o)
oh, and the house looks much like it usually does. :o)
