High Fructose Corn Syrup Hate Letter

April 26th, 2009 by tungsai

While using the restroom, one is often at the mercy of the reading material within arm’s reach. Lately, it’s been “Parenting” magazine (Though a more apt title would be “Mom’s” magazine, as it is clearly marketed toward women).

So, as I perused this flimsy periodical, I find myself subjected to print ad versions of the very annoying “High Fructose Corn Syrup is Not Evil” ad campaign. My annoyance stuck with me, so I memorized the URL “sweetsurprise.com”. Here’s my Love Letter I fired off to them:

your ad campaign to de-villainize the proliferation of your product is pathetic. It only serves to underscore the bad reputation, and are insulting to my intelligence. I am quite aware that it is “Natural”, “Made from Corn” “Same as table sugar” in most respects, etc. THE PROBLEM IS THE PROLIFERATION OF YOUR SUGAR IN EVERYTHING. And instructing people to “not go back for thirds”? So, it’s the CUSTOMER’S FAULT that your product has proliferated so ubiquitously in the grocery store that I have to go out of my way to find products without it? You’re starting a marketing campaign to *counter* the marketing campaign created by the food companies! A person like me is simply going to see you all as the same entity anyway.

In conclusion, F*** You. Stop insulting my intelligence. Focus your monetary coffers toward other goals.

Photo Roundup

Hear ye, Hear ye, it’s time for yet another PHOTO ROUNDUP! 😀

Whenever I see something noteworthy, and the proper neurons fire, and I remember to bust out the Cell Phone Camera, I get some …interesting… ( ? ) images…

So without further ado, let’s kick off this round!


This first bunch is from a fountain outside the Illini Union. Would Purdue ever allow such risque nymphs on campus? …I doubt it. Their idea of art is more like… 100,000 red bricks.







April Fool’s Day in the Data Center!



Juffo-Wup is the power of life… hot warmth in the cold Void. It flows through all things, binding them together, making them one. You are Non-Juffo-Wup, you cannot understand.



Why– afraid I’ll skew the results??


Friar Tuck’s

Haiku: You’re doing it wrong.


What would a backwards orgasm feel like?


The Robot strikes again.

Bleh. Monday night. 10:51 pm. I should be in bed.

I have had the Boomtown Rats’ song, “I don’t like Mondays” stuck in my head forever. First time I heard it, I thought it sucked. Now the damn thing is stuck there in my brain and I can’t… get… it… out!

Today they thought my name was “Randy” at Penn Station. RANDY. doesn’t sound a thing like Wayne.

Still trying to study more for the MCITP. scored my best yet, 67% on a practice exam; made some dumb mistakes where I out-thought myself. I hate that.

I can’t even type enough to get all my thoughts out. Then again, who would care? Nobody cares.

Mia grows. Unfortunately her sense of responsibility is nonexistent as of yet. It is frustrating to continually increase the amount of effort & maintenance toward this child, and she still yet isn’t old enough to learn boundaries. well, maybe she is; but I’m not going to punish her for innocent accidents such as playing with the plug as I’m vacuuming. she wouldn’t understand.

Today I asked the wife if I could go out & get some beer, she graciously gave me the OK. So, I quickly geared up & made a foray to Friar Tuck’s. While I was in there, I saw these two fat nerds buying a 12-pack of Guinness. Obviously a couple of girlfriendless nerdy students. I thought to myself, “I bet those guys wish for girlfriends more than anything, they wanna meet that special someone, get settled down.” but I got really nostalgic for my single past. It made me realize, that, perhaps, I will never be able to live the free-wheelin’ lifestyle that I used to. I didn’t really think I was free-wheelin’, but MAN was I. Of course, I think my wife helps motivate me to do things that I myself wish I had more self-motivation for; such as keeping healthy and staying focused on being a marketable individual with 1337 Skillz. The grass is always greener yesterday.

Now it’s 11:04. That means I spent 13 minutes composing this blog post. you better read it.

Somebody, anybody.
