Newsflash!

This is why the rest of the world hates the US of A:

Because cooking a hot dog from scratch is just way too much work. What's next? A machine that shovels it into your mouth and turns the channel to WWE? Jesus Christ!

Hello SGM,

But sometimes I don't have the time to nuke a "raw" hotdog for a full 30 seconds. I like to grab a cold wiener-and-bun for the trip to McDonald's.

Alison-AMEN on the ick new Christmas music; Christina Aguilera in particular. Novelty sweaters, of course. All in the weiner-in-a-box category; nice call.
JJ- cold! yum. I like how you think. But what if McD's is more than a block away? Better bring the whole box.

I guess that trip to (Der) Wienerschnitzel is just too much work, eh?

Don't forget novelty socks, too.

If my frozen dinner requires an additional step beyond microwaving, like slicing the plastic wrap, I get resentful.

Have you seen the movie, Paris, Je t'aime? In the vignette with the mimes, they are at the Eiffel Tower and a couple of very obese people wearing cowboy hats and t-shirts that say "We Are the World" walk by. I laughed so hard! It's so sad, but that seems to be how people see us.

Novelty socks are bad but at least they are not so obvious!
Anon, I hear you. Sometimes I get so annoyed and inconvenienced by opening the lid of a pizza box. Why does life have to be so hard?
Paloma, I went on a cruise several years ago where the guests were US and the staff was not. I know that all they saw were fat people saying "blah blah blah buffet, can't these workers speak English, blah blah blah." I'm surprised they didn't sink the ship (the fat people or the staff)! Thanks for reading!

I don't even want to think about what kind of chemically gelled sludge these things are made of. That said, we did order one of those "Oreo pizzas" from Dominos a few months ago as a joke. It is basically crumbled up oreos baked on pizza dough with icing drizzled over the top. Vomit.
