Wheat Thins Chips

Wheat Thins Chips are not brand new. But they are new around here. And at NYCE, where regular Wheat Thins are regularly consumed, there’s genuine interest in the product (as opposed to the usual professorial / "reportorial" approach observed, oh my yes). So: these kinda blow. Now, if the goal is to be able to eat the same # of crackers (official serving: 9) and incur less calories, then mission accomplished. (regular WTs = 150 cals, 6 gs fat. these chippies = 130 cals and 4 gs fat. carbs: same.) But next to the regulars, these taste sawdusty & flimsy. And there’s actually more sodium (300 mgs vs 280 for regular). So: feh to these, and prob to the Ritz chips, too which george hamilton has been hawking like crazy on TV lately.

Very funny links today, TG. And it's been a while since I've heard someone call a product "feh."

Why, of course, I'll be suing this website that purports to use me as the source of their inspiration. There is NO WAY I'm going to let these stinky peons call me a narcissist. And I'm probably going to let my lawyers have a whack at that Top Gun parody, too.

If Dog Breath is reading today, he needs to check out this item's "sawdusty" link.

It talks about people composting their bark... which I'm sure Paris would love he do to his.

BK, please don't encourage that lower-class mutt. He makes my ferret nervous.

DOG KILLER, IF I ATE YOUR FERRET IT WOULD HAVE A BETTER LIFE ...

I ACTUALLY LIVE SURROUNDED BY SAWDUST. SAWDUST AND TOOLS AND NAILS AND ALL SORTS OF CRAP. IF I GO OUTSIDE TO GET AWAY FROM IT, I HAVE TO SUFFER THE CONSTANT RAIN. WHAT KIND OF LIFE IS THIS? FORTUNATELY, THERE ARE MANY INTERESTING SMELLY COMPOST PILES AROUND HERE TO INVESTIGATE.
