Nits Ahoy!!!

This from the February 2011 Trader Joe’s Fearless Flyer:  “Soft & Juicy Dried Mango.”


But never fear, the Flyer acknowledges the oxymoronic phrasing.  The Flyer goes on to explain, “The drying process is unique in that it uses glycerin to keep the mango soft—but never mushy—and mango juice is added in to give it a little extra moisture and further intensify the mango flavor.”

So.  “Dried Mango” which has glycerin and added mango juice is the offering.

How about a little truth in advertising next time, T.J., with “Soft & Juicy Processed Mango” instead?

Just askin’.

(But it wouldn’t be quite as eye-catching.)

Why not?

Here, Dear Gentle Reader(s), is an example of a mostly unnecessary sentence—one surely printed with tongue firmly in cheek:  “This ruling is unlikely to impact the vast majority of the gay community.”

Here, too, is a link to a story you might find both appalling and amusing.

Generally, the story discusses the case of “Alan,” a man with an I.Q. of 48, who has been prohibited from any activity other than “masturbation in his bedroom or bathroom – and nothing more.”

The gay element?  Alan had been engaging in sexual activity with another man.

It happened in England.  (It’s happening in England?)

On second thought, the “sentence” above was surely done with a touch of cynicism, eh wot?
