Grr—the site software translates my little ‘evil grin smiley’ into a dumb-looking whatever-it-is. Ick.

McDonalds shake?

The correct answer was somewhere between Mr. T’s sausage and beerorkid’s shake. I had a braunschweiger sandwich, one of my favorites from when I was younger. Frankly, I can’t believe it hasn’t killed me yet.

dude you so had to look at the package to be able to post, right?

I can hardly say it, yet alone spell it. wink

Does it still come in a yellow skin/plastic?

this post so reminded me of Steve, don’t eat it.  I think I was pretty darn close with the potted meat wink

Kind of makes you wonder how distressing it would be to read ingredients’ labels more frequently. The other week I read the label of this processed, flavored “cheese” spread stuff I bought. I almost started crying.

Good rule of thumb—buy only food that has fewer than 5 ingredients, and all of which you can pronounce! Hee.
