You're a 10 where you should be a 36!

Welcome to the early 2000s.

I'd disappoint her by more than an inch and a half if you know what I mean.
 
2018-06-01 4:54:08 PM  
Didn't they get sued already for doing the same thing with the "foot-long?"
IIRC they claimed it was just a name, not intended to indicate length.  I don't remember how it turned out, though.

A few years back, somebody discovered that SafeCo Field had been ripping everyone off with the beer sizes.

Large beers cost extra and came in a bigger cup, but didn't actually have any more beer in them than the small.

SafeCo apologized and said they hadn't been underserving people with large beers, they'd just been over-pouring in the small cups. Ha.

No real point here, except I guess that you should expect to be ripped off when you patron shiatty businesses that specialize in ripping people off.

What's the matter, lady? 4 and a half inches doesn't do it for you?

should that have been...broad, broads  ??

It may only be 4 1/2 inches but it smells like a foot.
 
2018-06-01 4:55:39 PM  
Next she be measuring a two-by-four and finding out it's not 2 by 4

She knows a six incher when she sees one.
 
2018-06-01 4:57:35 PM  
Ah, reminds me of the idiotic lawsuit where the lawyers got a lot of cash but the actual plaintiffs got just about diddly.

That is kind of annoying, especially when working with older structures. 2x4 "nominal" is irritatingly mis-dimensioned when used with hundred year old wood.
 
2018-06-01 4:58:14 PM  
But was it a girthy sandwich?

He had a stroke; that's why it's only 4.5 inches long now.

It's sorta obvious when it's 3/4's as long as advertised. Good for her.

Everyone knows that you start at the taint and go to the top of the head.
 
2018-06-01 5:02:07 PM  
This has been dogging Subway for years.  W[hy]TF don't they just call them "full" and "half"?
 
2018-06-01 5:02:29 PM  
Can I give you guys a friendly piece of advice? Don't ever eat at Subway ok. They f*ck you at Subway, ok! They f*ck you at Subway!

She says 33? I whip out my calendar and find not a day under 43.
 
2018-06-01 5:04:54 PM  
Oh no, they lied about the size of my sandwich made
from mechanically separated chicken which 50 years ago
would be deemed fit only for dog food.
/the horror
//ugh, would rather eat Hormel meat paste.
 
2018-06-01 5:05:03 PM  
Where did she find a ruler with inches in the UK?

Don't worry about it, I'm sure somebody will cock it up at some point.

No fair! You have to tease the 'po boy a little before measuring!

Small Beer Vs Large Beer at Qwest Field

Problem is that you are not supposed to fill up the small that much so yes the large would fit because the large wasn't filled to the top and when poured into the small it completely filled it when there is no chance you could ever serve that kind of drink.  This was a controversy for idiots.

The center of the taint.

She's in the UK! That sandwich is 6 metric inches, baby; that's the problem! Besides, the exchange rate today is £4.5 to $6 anyway, so what do you want?

Bread that is baked fresh each day in the store can cause some variation

No it really doesn't, not smaller anyway. Bread expands when it's baked, it doesn't shrink.
If you use a 12 inch pan with enough dough, you're going to get a 12 inch loaf of bread.

The store was just trying to get 3 sandwiches out of each loaf instead of 2.
 
2018-06-01 5:17:54 PM  
Whip it out at McD's and and show 'em what real meat is.

I thought it was center of the b-hole. Or the front door.
 
2018-06-01 5:20:11 PM  
Oh, it looks like they may have given her a kids' meal size one (potentially by mistake).  Usually they cut a loaf into rough thirds for that.
 
2018-06-01 5:20:24 PM  
Is it in yet?

Oh man I remember that scene now and then (whenever I see an ad for a foot-long sandwich) but I have no idea what movie it's from, saw it in college and I was semi-drunk.
