I saw this wino, he was eating grapes. I was like, “Dude, you have to wait.” - Mitch Hedberg

I MISS MITCH HEDBERG SO MUCH! I hear he actually sold brownie scented incense. I want some of that.

Oh hi! That’s me!

Why buys TWO bags of grapes? I only buy them when I’m going to a potluck or a D&D game night. If I buy them and bring them home I’ll eat half the bag and then forget them for a day and got back to the fridge and they are rotten. Such worthless fruit. Glad I’m drinking wine tonight because it is a much better use of grapes.

I bought a pineapple last month and I felt like royalty.

this is what i just picked up from the grocery store. it cost $32. Thirty. two. dollars. for 1 pineapple, 2 bags of grapes, a small container of raspberries, 1 soft drink and 2/$1 nuts…. 

do you know how much junk food i could have for $32? do you have any clue how much McDonald’s you can get for $32?

stop shaming fat people poorer than you or people poorer than you in general for not eating healthier. stop lying about how cheap it is or how it’s comparable to fast food. just stop.

!!!!!!!

the thing about people who preach that “it’s cheaper to buy healthy food!” and use the numbers they found at their grocery store to prove it

well

if the prices on your grocery are actually low and of good quality it’s probably because you live in a rich neighborhood to begin with and/or can afford a car or some time of transportation (and time) to get to the nearest quality grocery store. if you’re actually below the poverty line and living in a poor area 

THERE IS NO GROCERY STORE

I saw this on my phone awhile ago and I kept thinking about it and here it is again on my dash. First, yes, there are food deserts. There are places that you can’t find fresh produce. My neighborhood used to be one of those.

If this person found these things at a grocery store near them then a few things came to mind when I saw this. I don’t know where you live but raspberries, pineapples, and grapes are generally very expensive fruits with short shelf lives that don’t have the same growing seasons and are not grown in the same climates. Buying fruit out of season and from far away makes them even more expensive. You can’t just buy the most expensive out of season fruits and claim that it is impossible to be poor and live healthy, it’s really not fair.

But you know what, they don’t teach us about growing seasons and food that grows in our climate or even how to shop for food when we are at school and I think that is really messed up. They don’t teach us renter’s rights, our rights in dealing with cops, or how to calculate the price of food by volume. These things are important.

i like the term ‘gender alignments’ because it presents new identities such as: lawful gender, gender evil, and the ever mysterious gender gender.

I am all for this.
