Does your chili add up? Fri, 01/30/04 9:20 AM (permalink)
Heard on the radio that Hormel is recalling 140,000 lbs of chili in 16 or 17 states. Seems as though a calculator fell in a vat somewhere along the way. Customers were finding rubber and plastics. Extra chewy chili!

          Rumor has it that Hormel only discovered such occurrence following customers reporting that after consuming their chili, they not only went number "2" but also "2.833," "6,781" and "58.12%."

            I assume then, that the chili is Y2K compliant.

                  Wonder if this company error was first noticed by the bean counters?

                      Yeah, but is it Atkins-friendly?

                          Add some corn chips and you have the traditional chili and frito pi.

                            but pi are round - cornbread is squared

                              They don't use a recipe to make chili, they use an equation.

                                I think we are overlooking the most compelling issue here - What was someone doing standing over a vat of chili with a calculator in the first place?

                                  Perhaps he was recounting his childhood memories?

                                    I dunno -- I said corn chips, not corn bread -- and they are kind of curvy.

                                    And when I make cornbread in my cast iron skillet, it's round!

                                    I think I should win.

                                      That is irrational.

                                        A heinous plot, no doubt. I think this requires counter-intelligence.

                                            It was probably one of those TI's, but I prefer chili Mac.

                                              Sorry. here's why lone Star is on top:

                                              1) she's from texas

                                              2) it was very funny, if not quite a direct quote

                                              3) she's totally hot

                                              4) the judge's decision is totaly arbitrary.


                                              Come now, this is getting divisive.

                                                        No reply? Did I go off too far on a tangent?
