Better Marriage Blanket Features Military-Grade Fart Protection
Fortunately for us, someone is not afraid to seek out and address the real problems facing this nation. It’s a fact that 97% of marriages end in divorce or spousal homicide due to in-bed flatulence. Thank God some one had the good sense to invent the Better Marriage Blanket and put an end to the madness. I believe you can find it at Bed Bath & Beyond in the ‘First World Problems’ aisle. Although maybe you wouldn’t need the fart blanket if you weren’t sitting around eating lasagna from your Desktop Microwave all day long. ‘An ounce of prevention’ as they say. If the blanket proves incapable of containing your spouse’s prolific posterior emissions then perhaps you can settle for cathartically shooting them with this concept Post-it assault rifle instead of actual bloodshed. Anyway, this is starting to sound like the worst Price is Right showcase ever so I’ll say ‘keep up the good work’.

Gadgettes,

The reason so many products have both french and english text on the packaging is that there is a law in canada that any product sold has to have both english and french labeling. Some companies have separate packaging for both US and Canada but others use the same in both places. Especially when it comes to free samples. Probably because it is more cost effective.

My wife is from Canada and on one of our many trips up there. we stopped to refuel. As we were paying for our gas and others supplies (ie slim jims and sunflower seeds). I saw a soda in the cooler. It read what I though was raisin flavor. So I proceeded to make one of my many inappropriate joke about canada and my wife just looked at me and it grape soda stupid.
