Research, vol. 3

Yes, you really can buy 10 razors for $2.

And who drinks a Berry Chai Tazo Tea Infusion? If a guy orders that, his dick actually shrinks.

Christ awmighty.

I have acutally considered getting one of those berry chai tazo tea infusions, Of course I'm not a guy so I don't have to worry about anything shrinking (I don't think)

we boycott this company.
it continues to amaze me how many people go order this kind of nonsense. what the hell ever happened to coffee?

Shaina said...

if you buy those razors, you'll pay more than $2 for the bandaids you'll need when you cut yourself a million times.

also, if i liked chai, i might get that thing...once. but i'm not a guy, obv.

I can't believe how ghastly the sugar content on the tea and coffee "beverages" are.

Many are loaded with fat as well. You've also got to make sure you've checked the 'whipped cream' option and recalculate to get those added calories.

Pass the Maxwell House. Erin love shitty coffee!

Erin O'Brien said...

Oh yeah, the razors.

I have some of those. There was a time when ALL razors were single-bladed. There not so bad. You just have to be careful and use plenty of cheapo Barbasol shaving cream.

Or (and yes I have) you can use soap.

If Clint Eastwood or Arnold Schwarzenegger drank a Berry Chai Infusion, the next day the Gauls would invade and force us to wear aprons and macrame' in a knitting circle while they sold our children on an auction block in the white slave market in Kathmandu.

I just picked up 10 blades for $1.67. Granted, they're the double edged safety razors that I used in my old-school style safety razor, but they offer the best shave I've ever had. And since, they're double edged, I actually paid for 20 blades. I'm 33 and prefer the old style razor to the 7-bladed insanity that Gillette now offers.

/Barbasol Original Lather, too.

I wonder if George Costanza drank that Berry Chai infusion?

Amy L. Hanna said...

Aw, c'mon! I'm Recessionary Recipient and just might need outdated batteries in bulk ...

And If I were to ever patronize McVenti's my wallet would be the first to shrink.

"Berry Chai Tazo Tea Infusion" All right, I recognize two of those words in English where they might be used in the same sentence. (The Hebrew one is all right, too, it appears.)

However, taking the Mistress's suggestion to its logical extreme,* this could be a stimulating experience.

Assume, for instance, that the effect of the, uh, "tea" wears off after a known period of time (x). At some time (epsilon, usually, so let's set this at 2 epsilon) before x, commence foreplay until time epsilon.

Engage in intercourse, and enjoy the sudden growth as the dick recovers from the tea.

It's like Viagra, only less likely to be used illicitly.

*The term "logical" used loosely, of course.

I guess he's a stiff.

VideoDude said...

Did he "come" and go at the same time?

This is late in the Illinois US Rep primary race, but thought you might like to take a look at a "non-Political" candidate:

I know you are in Cleveland, but curious of your thoughts or possible endorsement.

PJR of Chicago

This just in;

In totally unrelated news, it's official: Otto Moser's sucks. bad. real bad.

Otto Moser's graced Wig Alley (E.4th) for 102 years before moving to Playhouse Square a few blocks East and North 15 years ago. The old place was the real McCoy, faded tintypes of pre-vaudevillian superstars attached by dust and evaporated sweat to walls sporting a century-old nicotine patina. I was never there when it wasn't a Full Cleveland Experience.

God knows I've tried to support the new place. But the sterility of character and piss poor service and cooking is too much. Enough.
To have no pride in the memory of an immigrant son who slaked the thirst of W. C. Fields, Lillian Russell and George M. Cohan is unbearable to watch.

Otto, we the faithful, salute you. We will never forget you.

We'll toast you in your shadow from Nick Costas' PickWick and Frolic. Try the veal.

Erin O'Brien said...

Sure do remember the ol' Otto's.

Now I guess I don't need to go to the new one. And yeah, P&F is cool.

Hey Phil.

philbilly said...

Hey, Erin.

Thanks for another memory.

My old man shaved with lather made from the slivers of bar soap in a coffee mug to save money. Then he cauterized his mug with St. John's Bay Rum.. Which was his Christmas present from us every year. I see it's $28 for 2 ounces now, he'd have figured out a way to make his own. I was fascinated with the bottles.

Isn't "Chai" the Hebrew word for "life"? As in, "L'chaim!" (that would be conjugated...)

Anyway, if it is, it is (and I need to think of a term for this...) one of those words that is so widely mispronouced, that if you pronounce it the right way (a guttural "ch" like, "Chutzpah"...) nobody knows what the f... you are talking about.

A non-Yiddish example would be "Joop!" cologne...NOBODY pronounces it, "Yope."
