Voted one of the ten best "new" grocery items of 2008, no less! A buck-eighty nine for a "child sized", plastic wrapped spud with a Disney sticker. We know where that ad man's raise is coming from...

I saw this post yesterday and I was speechless. So I decided to delay comment and see if I could form a cogent thought. I am still speechless.

Is it at least a Shrinky Dink sticker? So when you nuke your potato the sticker will shrink into something amazing? Like your $1.89 back?

I invented the "microwave ready" potato by poking a few holes in an ordinary potato.

When I first saw this in the store I held one aloft, and yelled to my shopping partner across the produce section "What the living hell?!"

That's what I like about our readers, up to date and very vocal. Good job EB.

Speaking of shopping... our store has recently put in TV screens to push this or that item. Usually I mutter darkly at them and ask Computer Geek to invent something I can point at them and cause them to freeze up and explode. Don't get me started on the over the intercom announcements about how much they care for me.
So in the produce aisle this chirpy woman was giving me advice on how to raise my children and how to get good day care when I go back to work. And this has what to do with vegetables? Besides, at 18, at the time, Computer Geek would balk at a nanny, unless she was in her early twenties and cute.
ALL I want to do is buy groceries. I've taken to wearing my ipod at the store.
crankily yours...
