I was torn between the oreo topic and this one. Today's Sherman's Lagoon. As background the fossil is something he found on the beach and gave to his wife Megan as a cookie cutter.

@IowaDee  gifted me with the book "Dear Los Angeles which is a collection of diary entries, letters, emails and the like from the 30's to the present. On a trying morning this from 2017  gave me a good chuckle:  "People in LA are deathly afraid of gluten. I swear to god, you could rob a liquor store in this city with a bagel"

After 3 days of sour fish - I'll bet that a sour crap is an easy accomplishment!

I'd bet on 'inevitable'.

I'm sure the manufacturer didn't intend this to be funny, but it pegged my irony meter.

Bimbo makes Hostess look like small potatoes. Odd sounding but part of the culture. Maybe I missed something. Bimbo delivery trucks roll around here. Largest commercial bakery in the world.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grupo_Bimbo

Oh, I know they're a major corporation. Nonetheless, when I see that name my immediate thought is of the earlier meaning: beautiful, good-natured, clueless er, person. Couple that with a package of something akin to Pop-TartsTM labeled as "Fine Pastry" - and the wrapper discarded on the desert at that! - and the juxtaposition was too much for me. (It may just be my strange sense of humor, and irritation at the trash I pick up in the wild lands.)

OK I get the crazy moment. "fine pastry"   I guess I am so used to the odd mash of english in many Asian goods that I kinda of shrug them off. How many times can you say "really?"

OMG!  Who knew?  I am gobsmacked (as the British would say).

When we first started traveling to Mexico, Bimbo had not yet made it across the border.  I used to save the wrappers and pack my travel gifts in them.  It was so much fun to watch friends and family when they saw them.   I also like the name of the big  L.P. Gas Co.  It is Gaspasa.  I think it may actually be bean powered.😊
