The Epicure

Why marketing vexes me

When I think of a strawberry, many words come to mind...

Sexy. (Yes, sexy.)
(Sometimes even) Pie.

The absolute last word I would associate with a strawberry is FIERCE. Unless someone can show me that Gatorade is hunting wild, carnivorous strawberries on the plains of the Serengeti, I have to say that I'm going to remain doubtful.

UPDATE: Holy crap! Lions!

Strange magic

Today, I learned how they build a crane on a stick. I also learned that they can get taller even after they've been erected.

I'd share the secret, but then I'd have to kill you you wouldn't have the pleasure of asking an idle construction worker yourself.
