Hilarious!  Yeah, that does sound kinda tacky (pun intended).   But I would have loved to just try it out.

I'm still trying to get over the 1 inch downsizing of the diameter of the damn things that happened a few years ago.  That really pissed me off.

Why can't they just leave the size alone and just raise the price ?
 
The corn tortillas do seem a little smaller than they were years ago, depending on the brands.  One local grocery chain in particular (Food Lion) carries a pretty large selection of Mexican and other Latino products and brands, and some of those tortillas seem to have maintained their size.  It seems like the wheat tortillas come in about 6 different sizes.

I didn't realize that tortillas would have to be sweetened at all. - sugar or fake sugar.  I guess the wheat ones are not as sweet as the corn ones or it may help them rise.  And yes, that Splenda stuff tastes disgusting.

 
Real tortillas aren't sweetened, of course, but removing some wheat starch and replacing it with fiber must have left them tasting like paper. I'm not a fan of their solution.

That'll do. Still a letdown that it happened at all. I agree with the shenanigans but everyone's got cameras these days, so why risk a criminal complaint? 

 
In not-pissed-off-level-but-still-annoying-level related news, my video doorbell was confused by all of the heavy wind and snow and did NOT capture the incident.

That is pretty stunning but it appears to be a somewhat positive turn.

 
Definitely. I didn't get a chance to really inspect the damage to my daughter's truck this morning as it was still dark when she left for school, but after seeing the truck that hit it (full size Dodge with rear bumper nearly torn off from the impact) , I think she actually got lucky there wasn't a lot more damage.

The email marketing "genius" who has somehow convinced vendors across the planet that sending more than one email per day is a "great" marketing strategy.  Big hint: If I didn't want to buy anything from you at 10 o'clock in the morning, I don't want to buy anything from you by 11.  Or noon.  Or at any of the other multiple times per day you're emailing me.  If you want to email me once a day, I'll deal with that, but more than that and I'm unsubscribing from your GD list and will endeavour to never buy anything from you ever again because, frankly, you're too stupid to be in business.
