I think this has more to do with cinematic shorthand. Cartons of food can mean

"late night, working session" or

"urban gal or guy on the go, too busy to cook" or

"harassed mom, too stressed to cook".

Like full ashtrays next to a Remington typewriter used to be used to show a journalist on deadline.

Dirty plates don't convey the same thing, nor do crumpled fast food wrappers (unless they're product placement).

Yknow Liza~

theres plenty of submissives whod probably pay YOU to LET them do it.

Think of the potential...never AGAIN having to wash a dish.

N'est-ce-pas?

Editors note:

YES

This IS my version of really offbeat humor.

Not as offbeat as SOME of the great stuff thats gone before me and will undoubtedly come AFTER, but hey its a first attempt.

In my college days, I was a pro at removing the wire handle without letting the carton fall apart. That way I could put the carton in the microwave. In this fashion, the carton was good for two meals (how many I got from a standard sized carton) AND two episodes of plate-washing! :laugh:
