|Quick, contact the dictionaries, there's another word that seems to need updating. Look in that tin - it's 'spaghetti', by the new definition in which spaghetti means baked beans. The next tin was the same, so it can't just be a fluke - spaghetti really must have been redefined while I wasn't looking. Only for small quantities, though.|
Another word that seems to have a new definition is "unique", depicted to the right on a builder's sign. 2 only? Bique, then, rather than unique. Or, wait, perhaps I misread the punctuation - "Unique stunning! 2 only" - get uniquely stunned with your loved one, before some other, less deserving couple takes this once in a lifetime opportunity.
We walked past this "Independent Order Of Odd Fellows" building, so we went in and told them "your ideas are intriguing to us and we wish to subscribe to your newsletter", but it turned out they weren't actually very odd or independent, so, in order to cleverly cram this picture into the same theme as the rest of the post, I think both independent and odd also need a new definition. And possibly order. But mostly I just wanted to grumble about the ninja beans. [16:25]
|Perhaps they ment " Unique, Stunning 2, only -" and forgot what else they were putting.... and as for the spaghetti.... you've got me there. Perhaps it was all just a conspiracy thing to try and get you to think that they had changed the meaning of spaghetti to baked beans.|
Alas my poor brain has melted in the snow.
|Is "Spaghetti" a brand or something? The picture is blurry, but it appears to depict beans rather than spaghetti, ruling out a mistake at the cannery.|
I'm afraid I can't defend the other two, although the Independent Order of Odd Fellows Lodge can almost make good their claim of oddness by naming any Order something so ridiculous.
|No, that's just the blurriness of the picture. The picture on the can is of spaghetti.|
|Oh, my. A call to the company, perhaps?|
|Not worth the fuss. S'only cheap.|
|Oh, not for something silly like a refund... just to see what they would say to that. Could make for an interesting few minutes.|
|EEEEnteresting... but then, spaghetti and/or baked beans were never really my thing. Spoons, even less. I mean, anything that can hang off you nose and reflects your image upside down has GOT to have ulterior motives.|
As for the Oddfellows - hmmph. Maybe they're odd in their normalcy - after all, anything that is normal these days is odd, merely because of the prolific oddness in the world today.
As for unique - that's another hmmph. Maybe the fact that there were two of the same was a unique thing. Perhaps the company that makes them usually makes unique things and the fact that they made a duplicate was, in itself, unique.
Back to spaghetti for a moment - it comes in cans? Fascinating. And here I always thought you had to actually BOIL it...
|mmm...interesting. Pizza has been redefined in America. I wish I had taken a picture because I, being in a mad rush to get to rehearsal, ordered a pizza. Upon opening the box, I found that I had *drum roll* a round piece of pizza crust. No cheese or anythign else. Just slightly raw looking pizza crust. Food is weird here though, I got a bug in a chip bag once. My boyfriend got a hamburger w/o the hamburger once (at a resteraunt, obviously) *tsk* gotta love quality control!|
|Today I ordered a Dr. Pepper at one of those little kiosk-type things in the mall, and I found that it was not, in fact, filled with Dr. Pepper, but with *drumroll* ketchup.|
Yes, ketchup. My friend Julia was holding it for me and thought it was too heavy to be Dr. Pepper, so she opened it and started screaming. She thought it was blood. Major squick.
