Pet Ometer

I got a free pedometer at a health fair at work.

The instructions that came with said gizmo included the following bit of ridiculosity:

“NOTE: This is a mechanical device and requires no batterios.”

Made in China.

Shocking!

So… Batterios. Is that like Spaghettios? Or Cheerios?
I know I would love a big bowl of whole grain Batterios for breakfast.


Mmmmmmmmmm… metal-y.

And you just know that the batteries in the cereal won't fit the included toy. See that's how they get you. Every damn time.

I'll take the metallic taste of Batterios any day over the soapy taste of Captain Crunch!

And they're high in fiber, too!

Wish we could get Batterios in Canada...

Heather,
Please make some chocolate flavored Batterios for me. I needs my chocolate.

Brooke: It was made in China... like you!

W/T: I bet it would give you a real *charge*

Shawn: You are so right!

Margo: Or the tiny pebble-like taste of Grape-Nuts.

Liddy: That's what you get for living there! Bwahahahahaha!

Hairball: I heard Sandra Lee has a great recipe for chocolate batterios using Hershey's kisses and Wal-Mart brand D-cells.

Well, now, this makes perfect sense in light of the bit of correspondence I just received from a friend in the biz. The new trend in outsourcing to India? Copy editing.

Ha, indeed!

Metal-y, not to mention batter-y...

I'm going to start production of Batterios immediately.

Your blog post has just made me a millionaire!
