Real Inflation

I purchased the same sandwich I purchase ever couple of weeks or so at the cafe on the ground floor of the building I work in. The price is the same as always $4.95. Just today, instead of getting both halves of the sandwich, I only get 1 half.

I guess I could shed a few pounds anyway. Thanks Ben, you jerk......

You could look at it as "Deflation" happening in the sandwich size market.

You say "Tomato" and I say "Tow mah toe" Tomato, Tow Mah Toe, let's call the whole thing off

I was at Home Town Buffet this past weekend having my weekend enormous breakfast/brunch. Most days, I eat like a bird but every once in a while, I like getting the paper and pigging out on a giant breakfast deal and fortunately, there is a really good HTB near Smug Bastard Central that does a good job on brunch. Anyhoooooo, I'm down there later than usual. The madding crowds don't usually roll out of bed until after 10 so I try to make it a point to be there at 8:00 or so. But, one thing led to another and there I was with all the BIG people. These were some BIG people with BIG appetites and BIG waistlines to match - Most were enormous (said with my Foghorn Leghorn accent) people chowing down - a spectacle to behold. I thought to myself - a skinny brown person from the other side of the globe would think he'd died and gone to heaven if he could make two trips a WEEK to this buffet. Americans take it for granted - trust me, a little inflation in food prices that gets people to slow down on the biscuits and gravy and cheesy grits will not be a bad thing in the long run.

BIG - you know what I'm talkin' 'bout, Willis? BIG, HUNGRY, you might even say RAVENOUS people gettin' down with their bad self for the princely sum of $8 (and that includes coffee and juice). I love this country - it has the fattest poor people in all of the world!!! Kid you not - saw a dude load an entire plate down with just bacon and then put some syrup on top. I really dig their french toast with the sausage on the side but that dude was like eating a whole frickin' piglet that was sautee'd in maple syrup. Oh, and Cheesy Grits - my inner Mississippian cannot resist the siren song of Cheesy Grits. The only thing missing was fried bologna.

My lesson of the day at the HTB breakfast buffet: All indications are that BIG asses require much fuel. Well, they don't REALLY require it but they do seem to enjoy fueling up. How many miles could you bicycle if you were able to somehow harness the sheer power potential hidden within the fat asses you see in a given week? That's a LOT of potential energy, my friend. My guess is that you could give Lance Armstrong a run for his money.

The cause of death is currently unknown, but friends are speculating that it was the result of his contracting pneumonia after a bout with the flu.



Had nothing to do with his 575 pound weight.

I used to date this chick who was a food scientist. Figured out what cats and dogs like to eat - flavors that gave pleasure. Humans are pretty much the same only we get turned on by different stuff - that's why my mouth doesn't water when giving the Inglorious Bastard his morning breakfast of Little Friskies in a can. But, other shit does turn me on when it comes to flavor and smell and people who make the shit know what that is. She told me it's really pretty simple with most people... fats, sugars in different combinations, one flavor enhances the other, blah, blah, blah.. but they are always looking for ways to make shit more palatable for the unwashed masses so they will consumer more.... More is ALWAYS better, right??? Well maybe not. God damned a fat country... If we were not so undisciplined and soft and weak willed maybe we wouldn't be but we love indulging ourselves like little kiddies in a candy store.
]n typical McDonald's fashion, the company is doing everything it can to turn oatmeal into yet another bad choice. (Not only that, they've made it more expensive than a double-cheeseburger: $2.38 per serving in New York.) "Cream" (which contains seven ingredients, two of them actual dairy) is automatically added; brown sugar is ostensibly optional, but it's also added routinely unless a customer specifically requests otherwise. There are also diced apples, dried cranberries and raisins, the least processed of the ingredients (even the oatmeal contains seven ingredients, including "natural flavor").

Gonna go out on a limb here... we have cheap abundant food here because we've been the beneficiary of cheap abundant oil. Pricier oil = more expensive food = less consumption = thinner and more attractive women and fewer people who are 30 years old & weigh as much as a fucking baby grand piano dropping dead. Maybe higher fuel prices are not such a bad thing or I'm just looking for a silver lining.

seriously, that mother fucker weighed MORE than my old Suzuki motorcycle and almost as much as my old Kingpin (which was a pretty big bike). He would have had to live a little longer and eat a quite a few more cheese burgers down at the Heart Attack Grill to get close to weighing as much as the Vision, but he looked like he was damned determined to give it the old college try.
