When did he get elected?
 
2014-02-06 02:32:32 PM  
I can relate.

I probably eat 10-15 6oz cups of Chobani yogurt a week. They got their hooks in me, big time. I get nervous when I'm running low. Sometimes when Costco is selling cases for $4 off, I'll buy 4 or 5.

I won't lie, I'm starting to get a little worried about my habit. I don't know what they put in that sh*t.

Just go to the Cultures for Health website. They'll hook you up with no-heat yogurt, milk and water kefir, viili...

They got the good stuff.

/don't order Cultures for Health stuff off of Amazon.com. You'll end up with shiat in a sandwich bag mailed from some house in the backwoods.

A little silly, but athletes not having their standard meals could also be a big issue for game performance. Not quite as big a fail as the rest of the stories from Sochi so far, but it qualifies.

Chobani yogurt taste like shiat...  the US athletes should do fine in Sochi then since they have ice cream in the ass.
 
2014-02-06 02:47:40 PM  
They mad because they can't fake an orgasm by throwing it on someones back?
 
2014-02-06 02:50:36 PM  
Somehow Chobani is always in the news. First the military (US) wasn't allowing soldiers overseas to have it because some of the varieties had hemp (marijuana laws). Then Chobani had a voluntary recall of its yogurt that made national headlines. Then it made national headlines for Whole Foods dropping it (somehow that was newsworthy). And now Russia won't allow it in the country.

I actually think these controversies have been good PR because I had never heard of Chobani until the first controversy (the military one), and I now eat it in spite of the second controversy (the recall). It seems like it came out of nowhere and became the number 1 yogurt very fast.

Picky athletes...just take your turnips, beets, and cabbage stewed in vodka for breakfast like champions do.  Krokodil for lunch.

Great, so when an athlete does a split on a ski-jump, they'll really split.

That would be entertaining.

All yogurt is gay, so no paperwork necessary.

OK stop the presses, stop the presses. I know that as soon as you step off the plane in Sochi your phone is immediately hacked, then you get to Sochi and are chased by wild dogs (if you don't fall in an open manhole first), then you get to your hotel and the lobby has no floor, then you get to your room and there are wild dogs there too and you can not use the water because it contains something "dangerous" and if you have to poop you have to do it with 3 chairs watching you or in a dual stall, but all those things pale in comparison to our athletes not being able to get Chobani yogurt.

I like Fage Honey yogurt. It's probably banned in Russia as a "gay" yogurt.

However, Chobani strawberry and blueberry flavors are a huge hit for my son. He's a big fan of that and Yoplait kids yogurt (because Mickey Mouse).
 
2014-02-06 02:57:09 PM

I thought gay cowboys preferred pudding... Although this is Greek yogurt we are talking about. That probably raised a few red flags.

I hope your not suggesting that the Russian government might be holding up food shipments in order to gain an advantage in the games...because certainly Pooty-poot wouldn't stoop to such tactics.....

I know you've been training hard all your life to compete in the Olympics.

Your big day has finally come so we're sending you to a post apocalyptic eastern European shiathole where you'll be lucky if you don't get cancer from the water or eaten by feral dogs.

Now, get out there and go for the gold!

I think it means they've taken a healthy food and turned it into an unhealthy food product.

There are 4 grams of sugar in a cube. They've added 4-5 cubes of sugar to that yogurt. A coke can has 10 cubes of sugar.  (http://www.sugarstacks.com/beverages.htm )

I'm not a doctor or food scientist, so I'll let you determine on your own if too much sugar is dangerous to your health. However this is a google news search for sugar for just the past week.

One of my fave exchanges from that movie (besides the obvious 5gal of yogurt scene)
Virginia Cranehill: The fresh air, the exercise, and the pleasure of a leather saddle between one's thighs.
Eleanor Lightbody: Why, Virginia, what do you mean?
Virginia Cranehill: Bicycle smile, I believe they call it.

I assume you guys are ready to discuss plain full-fat greek yogurt or are you a bunch of presweetened yogurt pussies? If so, Zoi is hands down the best-textured, creamiest mouthfeel of any plain, full-fat greek yogurt - but you only get it in the Pacific NW i think (http://www.zoigreekyogurt.com/ )

Oh OK I understand it now.

I guess USA probably has rules as to which products you can bring in etc.

Maybe the Russians could have made an exemption for the Winter Olympics though. The whole olympic village is sealed of anyway.

The yougurt in question would be illegal in the EU as well btw., you're now allowed to mislabel foodproducts. Yougurt made in New York, is not Greek Yougurt. It's American yougurt, "Greek style" perhaps.
