Where's The Freakin' Candy Corn?!

Thank you for your patience. Due to heavy work volume, your blog may be delayed. Approximate hold time is five... four... three... two...

Hey have you seen this?

Of course you have! You saw it last year and the year before and the year before that! But have you received at least a dozen copies of it over the last week? Are you wondering why so many people (still) find it amusing enough to pass on and then further wondering why they suspect you, too, might find it amusing? "Hey, I know someone who would LOVE this! That Bee, she's all about the regurg!". Does it in fact start out pretty pointless then get less and less amusing every time, not unlike the saved by zero commercial?

So much for the sanctity of the American tradition in the Internet era. There are no mini candies at the office today (talk about saved by zero) which is just blasphemous. Pony up, America! If I see the puking pumpkin email one more time before someone gives me some candy corn, there's going to be trouble.

I sing the "Saved by Zero" song every Sunday, since it seems to be one of the 4 commercials they play during NFL games. By 8PM I'm usually chasing Mrs. ETE around the house while chirping the up-tempo "Saved by Zero" you hear 40 times at the end of the jingle.

My mom used to say that Pumpkins were a perfect example of how the white american devils waste food. Now I know shes clearly clearly wrong.

I...hate...that...commercial...

It's true. Mr. ETE does chase me around the house singing the "Saved by Zero" jingle. Fortunately, I'm usually drunk by that point in the evening
