Feckless 101

I ordered a couple of Domino’s new “Oven Baked Sandwiches” for home delivery recently.

The sandwiches arrived each in their own small box, just like a pizza comes in its own box.

Printed on the lid of each box was the following statement:

“FOR HEAT RETAINING CORRUGATED CARDBOARD TECHNOLOGY TO FUNCTION PROPERLY, CLOSE LID.”

Who writes this crap? More over, who approves it?

    Oooh. Must be a pretty high-tech cardboard box! Written instructions on food and various other items have provided great humor for my husband and I lately. Like frozen pizza directions. “Pizza must be cooked before consuming” And, did you know it will be hot when it comes out of the oven, so you should let it cool slightly before enjoying?

    You oughta check out Brian Regan, my stand up comic hero. He doesn’t do “adult” or “blue” stuff and he’s is the funniest, clean stand-up out there, in my never humble opinion.

    He does a bit about food packaging/lableing in general and Pop-tart packaging/labeling that’s a scream! Microwave vs. toaster instructions is Comedy Gold.

    Funny stuff. I like a comic who can entertain without dropping an “F” bomb every 5th word…but there are other times when I enjoy a well-timed adult expletive as part of a comedy routine too!

    One must remember that anything having to do with food and other products which might be hot needs to be labelled properly so as not to surprise the least intelligent amongst us. Because really, some people don’t seem to understand that a cup of hot coffee or pizza/sandwich just out of the oven with melty cheese might actually be…hot.

    So the question I have is: how was the sandwich?

  6. Stu says:

    They are great! I’ve only had the Italian, but I’ve had it 3 times now, if that tells you anything :-)

  7. Da Goddess says:

    well I may just have to try one (if I ever get paid from my ads, I’ll be able to afford to!)

    Right now, I have the worst craving for a big pastrami sandwich. Boulder Station Casino has one that’s really good. But I don’t think going to Vegas for a sandwich is the sort of thing I can talk anyone into.
