    This has got me in the mood for some fried Spam with a side of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Dinner, washed down with some French Market Coffee & Chicory — wartime delicacies all. By the way, some of the Kraft Deli Deluxe singles are real cheese, unlike most of the Kraft Singles, and they make awesome grilled cheese sandwiches! Just be sure the package says “Cheese” instead of “Cheese Food” or “Cheese Product” when buying in the USA.

    Preach on, brother Ruben. The “what’s the point” crowd suffer from reflexive non-thought commentitis (RNTC). I believe that a lot of these comments come from poor conversational skills. It’s a near automatic response that is expected to grant the utterer unearned cultural cache. These challenged individuals also tend to be heavy mouth breathers. They speak in expected and accepted patterns foregoing the need for individual liberty. They are the pod people, NPC’s, walking among us.
