Combine lemon with lime and you get Sprite. Combine every soda flavor and you get Dr. Pepper. Combine anything yellow with fructose and you get Mountain Dew. Combine Mountain Dew with blue raspberry and you get Voltage, a bubbly, sticky nightmare.
First of all, blue raspberry is just another joke from the smug suits at the advertising companies. It’s nothing but a color to offset whatever red or pink nonsense flavor happens to be shelved next to it.
You’ll never see a standalone blue raspberry candy. Also, every product that calls itself “blue raspberry” tastes like the same thing: non-raspberries. I’ve never eaten a blue raspberry (they actually exist), but I’m sure they don’t taste like watermelon Splenda.Read More
When I can only afford one luxury, toilet paper is always the one I choose. I’ve always been a Charmin man. Charmin is tough and responsible, yet gentle and soft. Charmin even offers a clog-free, money-back guarantee at its website www.charmin.com/cf-money-back.
I recently made the mistake of letting the household supply of Charmin run dry. By the time I discovered this, it was too late. My mother had already brought home a heaping pile of Scott.
Once in a generation, a product comes along that puts the word “paper” back in toilet paper. The product is Scott brand bath tissue.Read More
Imagine a phone that has more than 40 buttons, can make a call or send a text message from anywhere in the state and take pictures with a 1.3 megapixel camera. You’re not dreaming. You’re in the world of Pantech.
The Pantech Link is loaded with little buttons. They’re kind of hard to press if you’re a grown man or any species with hands larger than a raccoon. I like to use a pencil.
As far as charging the phone goes, you need to pull off the protective plug over the charging port to do that. It’s difficult to do but there is a small slit on the side of the plug where you can get underneath it to pry it off. Admittedly, it’s kind of hard to pry off if you don’t have raccoon hands. I like to use a pencil.Read More
Most parents teach their children to not say curse words. They do this for many reasons but typically it’s so the child will fit better into society.
But therein lies the problem. Nobody truly knows why society is opposed to certain words.
The late Comedian George Carlin summed it up in his infamous ‘7 Dirty Words’ routine.
“That’s about the only thing that you can really say about them for sure,” Carlin said. “That there are just some words — not many, either, just a few — that we’ve decided, ‘Well, we won’t use them all the time.’”Read More
Almost every guy loves a raunchy frat boy comedy and almost every girl loves a touching romantic comedy.
When these two genres combine into one film, one thing is guaranteed: Men and women will both hate it.
Such was the case with “That Awkward Moment,” starring Zac Efron.
In the beginning of the movie, Jason (Efron) is getting a girl out of his house after she has slept over. However, since Zac Efron plays him, the audience is already aware that deep down, he just wants to love. And they’re right.
The film’s first several minutes contain Jason partying and womanizing in that adorable Efron way, only to shockingly fall in love with one of the women with whom he has had a casual encounter.Read More
