I always get my hand stuck in the Pringles can.

I remember in the 1990s Mountain Dew was available in widemouth cans for people who couldn't bear to take 15 seconds to drain a can.

Pringles Dueling:

1) Take two Pringles cans. Either dump them out or eat all the Pringles. Whichever way is fine; you just need the cans to be empty.

2) Have a friend do the same with his own two Pringles cans.

3) With cans in hand, kneel, facing your partner. Set both cans on the ground. Raise both arms over your head (touchdown style) and with your fingers extended and your thumbs folded into your palms.

4) Together, slide your right hand into the first can (wrist deep).

5) Repeat with left hand.

6) Spread your fingers as much as necessary to ensure that both cans remain in place.

7) Speak to your partner: "For honor." Stand.

8) Battle until the cans are destroyed or one of you surrenders.

I've, uh, read about that.

They should just make the Pringle's tube into a funnel

I'm surprised they didn't put ear-straps on it so we could wear it like a horse's feed-bag.

How many chips do you have to eat at once, you fat slob? Has it occurred to you to just tip the bag over and pour a couple into your other hand and eat them gingerly? No, you gotta reach inside the whole god damn bag, grab all the greasy deep fried salted sliced spuds and shove them down your cavernous gullet, you gluttonous boar.

ZAZ: I remember in the 1990s Mountain Dew was available in widemouth cans for people who couldn't bear to take 15 seconds to drain a can.


Then wide-mouth cans became the industry standard.

Really? I thought the bottleneck was how much fat and salt they could get into the chip recipe before they become greasy crystals.

Why does the bag have "beef?" Isn't this a bag for fries, aka what limeys call "chips"?
 
2013-09-19 04:26:11 PM
How about cheetos bags that come with chopsticks?
 
2013-09-19 04:26:20 PM
I guess if you're one of those full fisted eaters this may be a problem, I usually just use a finger and thumb to pull one or two out at a time.

Probably cooked in beef tallow.
 
2013-09-19 04:27:57 PM
make the whole bag edible and then people can just shove the whole thing in their mouth.
 
2013-09-19 04:28:24 PM
Does the other side of the bag say "Walker For President"?

McDonalds fries used to be a combination of beef tallow and vegetable oil.

Have you never done home fries in bacon grease?

I've, uh, read about that.


So this is how you spend your time when you're not making pithy comments here.

Somehow, just how I suspected.

Nope.  I rarely even do bacon, unless peameal bacon once a month counts.  (I know, I know, I am the anti-Fark with a statement like that).

My worst sin is wine.  And overpriced cheese.  And bread.  And Wagon Wheels - I love those things.

Not as much fun as "Edward Fortyhands."

Aaaand in linking back from BoingBoing to the actual article, it's English crisps=American chips.  The English put all sort of god-awful flavor combinations in those.  So probably they are beef-flavored, regardless of what they were cooked in.

Can't they just train giant birds to eat the chips and regurgitate them down our fat gullets?  Snacking is too much work.
