you know... it's probably still good. i mean they used so many chemicals in that stuff that there isn't anything organic that could decay.

And now for sale on eBay...

Do-it-yourself food poisoning kits!

no bidders. Wonder why?

remember the Seinfeld episode where Elaine ate a piece of the Duke of Windsor's wedding cake? now,you can re-enact it in the comfort of your own kitchen (if you have your own stomach pump)!

Why? and...

WHY?!

and.. WHO saved it?

for this purpose?

*urp* ('scuse me)

I have a box of cereal in my cupboard that's so old it says "Ensign Crunch"

"vintage food collector"...

Would that be a collector of vintage food, or a food collector who is vintage, in the sense of being someone who is so old and senile that it makes twisted sense in what's left of his mind to pay for someone else's garbage in the deluded belief it is "collectable"?

On an unrelated tangent/rant, is anyone else tired of all this "God Bless America" crap . . . especially when it's included in an ad to sell 30 year old cake mix? Is it a really good marketing tagline? I am sooo going to buy 30 year old cake mix from you, because, dammit you're patriotic.

Matt - you made me spit coffee onto my keyboard.

I used to joke that if you put a half-eaten sandwich on eBay, some idiot would bid on it. Then someone did, so I changed my joke to "petrified cake mix." Back to the ol' drawing board.

i have this old canned product in my larder.... its just a little puffed out... think its still good?

The same seller has unopened Flavoraid packs? Who the HELL cleans out their cupboards and tries to make money off the garbage?

That's not a science experiment in the back of my refrigerator, that's my vintage food collection.

Quick, get the camera, we can sell this stuff on E-Bay.

Mmmmm, really old food...

It's what's for dinner.

I...am...in...the WRONG BUSINESS!

Take this job and shove it; I've got a pantry to clean!

golfwidow,

I'm sorry about your keyboard but I have just the thing if you. On ebay you will find my...

Red, White, and Blue Keyboard Drain Holes that I'm selling.

Hey there's -ly Ballou! What's up Ballou?

Thanks a lot Judi. Next time how about posting articles about eBay items before they're over! I'm just kicking myself for missing out on this...

Wait. There weren't any bids... maybe it will be relisted! :-)

Wonder how much I can get for my 1970 partially eaten Big Mac?.... one careful owner... still in mint condition.... smell that lettuce... meat patty now actually bounces!!!

I've got Mort Sahl's face on a box of '57 Bisquick. Offers?

Of course, "God Bless America" is relevant and important. America's the only country where you can rip off unsuspecting idiots by selling your garbage. And you save on the trash bill, too!

Hey, that gives me an idea -- I wonder if I could sell a banana peel on eBay.

*checks out the back corner of the pantry*

I've got a MINT in here!!!!

And it's really old.

after 30 years ,the guy on those bags should be called Pop 'N Retch.

The trifecta of trichinosis! No, wait -- that comes from undercooked pork. Lemme work on this...
