Being a university student, I always felt that I’ve been missing out on not having a roommate. That is, until I hear my friends who do have roommates tell horror stories about how their roommates hog the washrooms, keep them up at night, make a mess and most commonly eat food that’s not theirs.
This is a huge problem since most students don’t have a car and have to take public transit in order to buy groceries then have to drag the groceries back to their dorm rooms every time their roommates eat all their food but there is now a solution to this age old problem. Ben and Jerry’s, the famous premium ice-cream maker has just introduced a lock known as the “Euphori-Lock” that can be placed on the lid of your precious Ben and Jerry’s Strawberry Cheesecake Ice-Cream! The lock on the lid works by having a number padlock that only opens to reveal the delicious goodness if the numbers match!
The lock is made for the pint sized Ben and Jerry’s Ice-Cream and there is even a label that says “I’m terribly sorry, but there is no “u” in my “pint”.
Why this is Brilliant!
This is a brilliant solution since we’ve all had those pesky roommates and house guests that like to eat all your food without your permission. Only problem with this is that if I was your roommate and I really had my heart set on eating your pint of Strawberry Cheesecake Ice-cream, I can always just pull a kitchen knife out of the drawer, cut the bottom of the ice cream packaging and nomnomnom away like there’s no tomorrow. Well, at least you forced them to make the effort… just pray that they didn’t make too big of a mess and leave it for you to clean up after!
It’s summer time and everyone is out on the street. One of my most memorable summer memories was watching the Festival of Lights fireworks in Vancouver and buying hot dogs from street vendors to eat. They weren’t Japadogs, just average hot dogs but delicious and amazing none the less.
Today’s article brings us a whole new kind of hot dog vendors. Street foods are known for usually being dirty but today’s article brings it to a whole new level: Catherine Scalia, a 45 year old hot-dog vendor in New York is charged with prostitution after soliciting clients using her hot dog truck. She was busted when an undercover cop went in to buy two hot dogs and then she offered him to go to her home for “extra services”. The officer payed her $100 for a strip tease and then she offered him sexual favours for another $50; at which point she was cuffed and the bondage scene began… All jokes aside, she was arrested and charged with prostitution, which she pleaded not guilty. However this is not her first time being charged for prostitution. She was charged with prostitution back in 2003 and was also operating out of her truck under the cover as a hot dog vendor.
Neighbours say she would leave racy looking business cards around the neighbourhood advertising her business and that she would walk around in her underwear and a cigarette. “She was leaving little cards around CVS for naked house cleaning, topless house cleaning”.
Growing up, I’m glad I never went to a hot dog stand this disgusting, It makes me wonder what else is in those hot dogs that she sells. I find it hard to believe that someone so unattractive and so filthy looking could charge $100 for a strip tease and another $50 for sexual services. If it were me, I’d pay her $100 to keep her clothes on and another $50 to restrain from touching me.
These days everyone tells you everything is bad for you. Every kind of food for you is bad because it will be bad for your health, make your phallus and surrounding area shrink of you’re a guy; or like in today’s case, it can cause food poisoning as well!
If you’re like me; then you LOVE sushi, so today’s news should be a bit of a tragedy. Apparently; sushi is now dangerous to eat, and I don’t mean the rotten sushi either. So many of you may have heard of how McDonald’s in the states was under fire last year for “ammonia washing” their beef products. Apparently the same thing is done for fish. The spicy tuna roll that you’re snacking on right now? Yep, there’s a possibility that delicious roll has been reconstructed into that yummy mash that you’re chewing on right now.
You may think, “So what? It’s still food right? Everything is processed now anyways”. True dat bro, the only problem: two ugly strains of salmonella are associated with this form of food processing. When fish is filleted, there is still leftover meat left on the skeleton of the fish. To you and me, that is disposable meat. To the big corporations, that is money in their eyes. India catches and processes alot of fish these days. Not only is the so called “tuna scrape” just tuna, it is a combination of several different fish meats chopped and mashed together, then frozen and sold in giant blocks to restaurants all around the world. In the United States 80% of all domestically sold seafood is imported. Recently there have been 250 cases and a possible 6000 undiagnosed cases of food poisoning in the states with patients contacting Salmonella. What relates them all? 80% of the cases all claimed to have eaten spicy tuna rolls that contain the tuna scrape fish meat bought from grocery stores and restaurants.
Some food for thought: maybe next time you go out for sushi, stay on the safe side and order nigiri sushi or sashimi. Something that’s solid that you can actually see with your own eyes.
