Because we Can Can Can

July 26, 2010

Sorry for the can pun. It’s just that when presented with something that looks like what you see below, it’s not out of the question for all brain function to cease.

That would be this:

What WON'T they put in cans these days?

Ew, gross, vomit, and ew.

The person who looks over my shoulder as I compose these blogs claims that “someone writes a story about this every year,” so I’ll keep things brief.

I came across the story in one of the trades I’m always reading for work. Between that mention and the fawning Today Show piece, I’m left with only a few questions:

  1. I’m all for American ingenuity and know-how, but is this really something the world needed?
  2. How hard is it to ACTUALLY put some peanut butter and jelly on bread? (Hint: not very.)
  3. What kind of person eats meat from a can in their car? Botulism means nothing in the age of Botox??

Alright, tell me I’m wrong, prove to me the immense value of a sandwich in a can. I’ll be hoarding bread for the apocalypse.

    Actually, you’d be better off hoarding canwiches for the apocalypse. Bread goes bad.

      Lest you think I’m posting comments on my own blog, I think I must have logged in from Aaron’s laptop once and he didn’t clear his history or cache. If I’m lying, I’ll eat one of those can-wiches.
