FOODIE FRIDAY for April 10, 2009 (post 1 of 2)


Happy Friday, you guys! I'm soooooo happy the weekend is almost upon us. I'm gonna be writing, relaxing, and watching baseball games this weekend, and I can't wait to get started... I'll also probably be indulging in my new favorite snack food...I'm developing a mild addiction to the Chex Mix "Turtle" bars. They're so good, and despite the fact that they're sweet and delicious, they're only 130 calories, so I can't even really feel guilty about eating them.

And speaking of snack foods...my friend PETER found an amusing error on the front of his snack food. PETER says: "The writer of this snack food label may have observed that English is often neither elegant nor efficient. Having two vowels in health serves no communicative purpose, so why not just use one? As you can see from the photo, I have a helthy appetite for soy nuts."

I guess the folks at the grocery store don't read over the labels they put on their foods. Not that I expected their label-making machines to have spell-check or anything, but you'd think that someone would look at that label and say, "Gee, something doesn't look quite right..." (Or not!)

Thanks, PETER, for spotting this one!

heh heh heh. Everyone knows that excess vowels are just plain superfluous!
