So, the other night McBlogger sends me this link and suggests, nay BEGS me to mock the latest in crappy food ideas. Well, my first reaction is, “this is exactly the sort of thing I expected would happen with Obama. Don’t blame me, I voted for Hillary.” Besides, I’ve already delivered my contractually obligated post for the week.
Later that night I see that Colbert has a piece on it, though, and it turns out that like everything else these days even the Candwich is tainted by financial scandal. Watch it here, if you want. No, I’m not going to try to explain it to you myself, do I look like Paul freaking Krugman?
You know, when I was just growing up Chef Boy-Ar-Dee had already mastered putting a spaghetti-like substance in a can. By the time I was in high school, Pringles was canning something that looked similar to a potato chip. But now, while I’m counting down the days till I start collecting Social Security this country can’t even stick a peanut butter and jelly facsimile inside tin without someone ending up in court?
It’s enough to make me long for the heady days of the Cold War. You can bet that JFK would have had our best food delivery scientists working round the clock on the Candwich problem, lest the Russkies get their Borscht In A Box on collective farmers’ shelves first.
