Barvd: April 2010

Friday, May 7th, 2010

Just in time for lunch, the April edition of Barvd is here (What’s Barvd?) with more nausea-inducing tweets! Try to keep that turkey sandwich down as you read on:

“Crunchy” (also known as “Chunky”) peanut butter is disgusting, but here in America everyone is entitled to their own opinions about what sorts of things pass for food, no matter how incorrect they may be. Crunchy butter, however, just makes me physically ill. What could possibly be making it crunchy? Oh god…

Oh sure, your mother knows you’re sorry, David, but what about the rest of us? We’ve had to suffer through your repellant and possibly pornographic Rapunzel re-telling. Don’t we deserve an apology as well? Or better yet, an explanation?

Now that’s just fucked up is what that is.

Sometimes folks know when they’re being gross. Sometimes they even hashtag it. And sometimes, that acknowledgement still isn’t enough.

I first read about the weight-loss drug Alli back in 2007, from this hilarious and horrifying link. The part which has haunted me ever since is the website copy which read:

The excess fat that passes out of your body is not harmful. In fact, you may recognize it as something that looks like the oil on top of a pizza.

Oh bloody chunder, why?! Why compare it to pizza oil? How is that helping?!

That awful, awful note will be it for this month, but if you’ve spotted a disgusting tweet, you can nominate it for May. Submit a link and check back, or just subscribe to One Foot Tsunami.
