    One thing that I find rather interesting, despite how dull it may seem, is observing the difference in packaging on goods sold here and across the border. Anyhow, I bought some plantation sugar the other day at the grocery store, and was wondering if the same packaging would be used in the States.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    I'm sure it could be legally proven to be racist in the U.S.

    No. When making any packaging, there needs to be a marketing research and that picture would be poor marketing.

    Know your audience.

    If cotton balls were sold with the same picture and called Plantation Cotton, it'd the same difference.

    I'll avoid the obvious question.

    Maybe you don't know this but usually when you do that, I'm just thinking, "Okay, whateverthefuck".

    Which, translated, means, "I can't figure out how to respond, given the corner I painted myself into earlier."

    Don't worry, that's fine

    Even I wouldn't know what to do if ever I were hoist on several petards at once.

    1. I don't need to figure out how to respond? You act as if I'm obliged.

    2. What corner?

    3. Even you? I really don't have you at any high-standard.

    You're like the butt fucking ugly girl that also wears polka dot pants with a striped shirt and thinks she's the cutest thing in the world.

    "You go, girl"

    Honestly, when you say obvious question without saying it....it's really "whateverthefuck" and don't care if you ever mention it.

    You may as well had said. "High, migh nayme is James Kevin. I own a manchun an a yaut."
