Popcorn vs. Popcorn

This popcorn has officially pissed me off. You might think that popcorn is popcorn, but after this crappy store brand dared to market itself with the bold "Compare to Orville Redenbacher's," I discovered something different. While I can compare it all day long, it falls wayyyyy short. I didn't realize it was possible for freshly popped popcorn to taste so bad. And then I realized that, while it does suggest that we compare it to Orville Redenbacher's, it doesn't say that it compares FAVORABLY. That assumption was mine. So I thought I'd improve upon their labeling:

  1. My sister and I went to see "The Help" last weekend. (I know, we were the last 2 people in the US to see it). The movie theatre popcorn was awful. Some of it even tasted burnt. Since refills are free, I dumped the 2/3 full bucket in the trash and got a "fresh" supply. It still tasted like crap. Bad popcorn is an abomination and a crime against nature. I feel your pain.

  2. You were the second-to-last people. I haven't seen it. I'm reading the book now though. It's good but painful.

    And yes. A total abomination.
