Don't care what they call them, as long as I can use them to make edible duck bill shapes and run around the house honking I'm going to keep buying them. :D

i have to quote that on my LJ...may i??

Sure, go ahead.

And sadly, no Donald Duck costume.  If they put that in a pack of pringles then I'd be set!

It gives a lovely light."

It sounds silly, but this sort of thing is common.  An airplane is undeniably a vehicle, and it undeniably has a motor, but airplanes typically don't have to comply with laws that concern "motor vehicles."

Josh: "I don't have a job, I have ONE credit card, I'm stuck in a lease and I'm 28! My mom's basement IS ONE BAD DECISION AWAY!"

Airplanes have engines and in any event have a set of rules of their own to follow that otehr vehicles don't. But in this case it's a tax matter somehow.  :blink:

The 1995 Texas court case FRITO-LAY, INC. v THE PROCTER & GAMBLE COMPANY, it was revealed that Pringles are roughly 1/4 fat by weight (7g/oz). At this point I slapped myself silly, realizing I could've just look up the nutrition panel info. "Original" Pringles currently have 11g fat per oz (28g) -- almost 40% fat. At this rate, in a few years, they'll have to bill themselves as Pringles fat crisps

Ironically, Wise Original pork rinds --which actually ARE chunks of fried fat-- have 5g/oz, less than half the fat of Original Pringles.

By contrast, Baked Lays potato chips (in the court case above) had 1.5g fat/oz (about 5% fat by weight)

but Baked Lays taste like crap ;) (IMHO)
Neville: "My grandmother forbids me from using raunchy language."
Harry: "Well your grandmother is a Blast-Ended Skank!"
Neville: *GASP*
Hermione: "He doesn't mean it Neville, he's just testing out some wizard swears."
Harry: "I mean every word I ever say ever, because I'm Harry Potter." --'Wizard Swears', Potter Puppet Pals

Hermione: "What's your problem Harry?"
Harry: "My parents are dead, my life sucks, I can't hold down a girlfriend, and I'm surrounded by f*ck*ng goblins and sh*t all the time. I mean what the f*ck?"
Ron: "But it's magic Harry. The goblins are magical!" --'Wizard Angst', Potter Puppet Pals

Me: "It's just a matter of looking past [McKay's] arrogant exterior to see his warm, fuzzy, probably angst-filled interior."
Hawkeye: "You harperchondriac girls think everyone has an angst filled interior."

"Good gods, you sniff out angst like a police dog sniffs out drugs." --Lyric (to me)
