Week of 11/12/00::
Another Week Off
Since I spent most of this week hitting reload on cnn.com, I really didn't get around to coming up with an InExOb. So, once again it's time to turn to the Guest Hosts!
"Our Hershey products aren't called 'SugarStix' or 'LardBar' or 'Have-Another-Fatty' but here's a Canadian Hershey Bar called 'EatMore'! We are soooo deluded!"
Darrin Hull relates his experience:
"I'm in East St. Louis, looking for a bag of salted peanuts to take to the Cardinals game, because I don't wanna pay $5 for a $1 bag of peanuts.
As I make my way to the front of the store, my eyes are drawn to a product on the medicine shelves. I couldn't believe what I was reading.
I got back to work the next week and told my co-workers about the products and said I couldn't believe that I didn't have my digital camera with me. One of them, Scott, found it on the web and sent me the link to the parent company."
