am I the only one who was shocked to learn Ikea sold food? I thought they only sold crappy particleboard furniture you put together with an allen wrench.

antidumbass: IKEA food? Nope. The meat products prolly have names like 'Bjrvrrt' or 'Billy'. I've been to IKEA before, but why bother when there's a farmers' market 10 blocks away? Perhaps the food comes w/ illustrated instructions (and disposable cooking tools) for the illiterate.
The big 'what if': where does IKEA industrial waste go?

As a guy who worked on the North American advertising account for Ikea for six years and having to deal with the funny names... I'm getting a kick..

RedVentrue: Untill last week I had no idea Ikea made food.

You never saw the Simpsons episode where the Simpsons shop at Ikea because Lisa has the wrong Ikea pencil holder? Homer builds a device out of Lego bricks with four forks on arms and steal everybody's meatballs.

Yes, Ikea s famous for its crappy furniture and its crappy food. You can even buy Ikea houses. Some assembly required.

Sears catalogue used to sell concrete block houses that you could have shipped to you and assemble yourself. Some of them were nice middle class houses--and durable. The link goes to a photo of a concrete house in Hartland, New Brunswick.

Are you kidding? I used to take the wife out to Ikea for their 99 cent breakfasts... scrambled eggs, some sort of meat, some pastry thing.
After that, we'd wander through the store. Those 99 cent breakfasts would usually end up costing me a couple of hundred dollars.

/don't take the wife to Ikea anymore
