Finally something positive about this recession

I know that the economy really stinks these days. Prices for everything except homes are up. The stock market has motion sickness and could implode any minute. Mortgage lenders and banks are in trouble and most 401(k)'s have turned into 201(k)'s. The government is intervening where they never should and there seems to be no end in sight however I have managed to find a silver lining in this whole recession thing. The makers of the worst product of all time ZIMA have finally decided to stop making it. Hopefully this will give you some reason to smile and see that at least something positive has come out of this troubled economy. God bless this recession, now if we could only get them to stop making peeps the second worst product of all time we would really be heading in the right direction.

That is a pleasent thought Doc.
The first products to fail will be the ones we really don't need.
I want to see us all get a little more serious about what we spend our money on. It will be good for the country.

Oh No! Not Peeps! Mmmmmm. With their marshmallowy, food color flavored goodness.

If you want to get rid of something, get rid of those Uncrustables. I mean, *who* can't make their own PB&J sammich.

I thought they banged up long ago. I watched a video online about a year ago that was based on 2 guys in NYC going on Zima quest. It was hysterical.

I will have to say in college my roommate and I were prone to a bottle of Zima with a shot of Grenadine. It was yummy stuff.

All we are saying is give peeps a chance.

Peeps are waaaaay grosser than Zima.

I also drank some in college. It's a good starter drink for alcohol novices.

The only downside to this is that now I can't make fun of people drinking Zima.

Damn! I thought it was discontinued around '95.

What about Zima Gold???? Dammit.
I use peeps as paperweights.

Disaster Chick said...

I like Peeps.

Never had Zima, but I don't care for those kind of drinks - waaaay to sweet.

I have read that even during recessions and depressions that alcohol sales are ones that never fall like the rest.

Dude. A friend of mine asked me "what will college kids drink now?" and I responded with an old favorite: Boone's Farm.

It doesn't matter if they stop making them, they'll still be around, at the top of someone's closet who forgot they were there, 30 years from now and still edible.

YUK!
