Can You Handle It?

I posted earlier about the X-Treme White bread at my grocery store. I was able to show it to Chris in person, but you all will have to cope with just pictures. *Caution* These pictures may cause vertigo and/or heart palpatations. Please do not view if you are pregnant, nursing, have a heart condition, high blood pressure, or an affliction of the central nervous system.

I'm a really bad photographer, so you can't make out the writing, but you can see from the graph how much more awesome X-Treme White (in pink) is than whole wheat (in blue). This bread is ageist too. "Soft, wholesome nutrition - that's what kids get when they eat X-treme White bread!" That's so not fair! I want soft, wholesome nutrition too!

Here's the bottom of the bag. Notice how I got an X-TREME 10% DISCOUNT!!!!!!!!!!! Also notice how this bread is "new." I'm not quite clear how something can be "new."

Time to open the bag. Are you ready? Here goes!


Not even the mustard could handle it.

Gotta get me some of that. I bet if you eat a lot of it, you could get "Xtremely fat too."

Hee! It's the caption for the last picture that sent me over the edge. Ha!

BTW, that is some vaguely racist bread you've got there, J.

Wow. I think the most shocking part is that you actually purchased this bread. Do you feel different after eating it? Will you develop a superhero alter-ego or something? That would be cool. And X-treme.

I agree with B.

And I also agree with Katiedid...that last caption gives new meaning to "freakin' hilarious".

Heh. It does seem sort of racist considering they don't have the word bread on the package. It's just "X-treme White." I usually get Stroehmann small family, but they were out of that, and if I get something bigger it gets moldy, so I figured while I was getting something different I might as well go for the humor factor. I giggled while the guy was ringing it up. I haven't eaten any of it yet; my sandwhich today is on honey wheat, which is so not X-treme.
