I’m sharp and smart


Daniel's sharp and smart

(It’s a sharps disposal container at Monash Medical Centre.)

Also spotted just before Christmas, reindeer carrot in Safeway:


  • “The carrots preferred by reindeers.”
  • “Ingredients: Carrots, magic, love.”

I wonder if the ACCC would approve of those claims?

Ingredients are meant to be listed in order of quantity. Isn’t it a bit embarrassing when they put more magic into their carrots than love?

Dagoba organic chocolates used to list “love” as the final ingredient in their ingredient list. It made it a fun gift. Since the company was acquired by Hershey’s, they no longer list “love”. Having worked for global food companies, I suspect this maybe due to legal caution of a large corporation.

WRT “smart”, one of the funniest comments I’ve heard from a colleague came after he’d been out driving – “I’d rather have a smart driver and a dumb bus.”

Melbourne people, particularly those who’ve travelled the new ring services, will know what I mean.

Jagger — it’s the AddThis button. I’ll review my use of it, but in the meantime you might like to block manually in your Hosts file or by other means.
