New feature: manic mondays March 2, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — erylin @ 12:16 am

Mondays are crazy for me…I get to spend at least 4 hours in the car running kids to lessons, picking up the boyfriend, groceries, cleaning up from the kids all weekend ect.   I am finding it hard to find time to post…luckily I have been stashing away some HILARIOUS Weight Watchers cards…from the 70’s.   I figure I will post a few every monday…and whoever can come up with the best snark wins!   fun for all for my manic mondays…at least we get to laugh at our food!  

 and for today i present to you:   the wiener roast, 70’s style (i found this over at www.failfoods.com they are HILARIOUS check them out)

Crown Roast of Frankfurters


So I’m having a hard time figuring out what is filling the glorious frankenfuter crown roast (rofl I laughed till I cried when I first saw this) Is it cabbage?  onions?  lettuce? And I’m guessing the red could be peppers…  Nice use of parsley though. 

 And why the hell is there an urn with a cow on it there?   aren’t weiners pork usually?  Maybe its a funerary urn and this is the traditional funereal food of weight watchers in 1974. 

I wonder about the directions?   how do they hold it together? (i am guessing toothpicks)  I have no idea how this food is “diet”   it comes with no calorie content, no nutritional information, no fiber content listing.

    If you think that’s funny, you MUST check out Wendy McClure’s Candyboots website (http://www.candyboots.com/wwcards.html) and her book, The Amazing Mackerel Pudding Plan, both of which go to town skewering those ridiculous old WW recipes. I think the latter is the first place I saw the Crown Roast of Frankfurters. Eeeyikes.

    Actually, I don’t like hot dogs, but the people in my life will only eat pure beef hot dogs, preferably Hebrew National kosher all beef franks. Hot dogs can be made of combined beef & pork, beef, pork & chicken, all beef, or all chicken, or all turkey, or, even, so I hear, tofu.

    I know how this is diet food! Take one look and you won’t want to eat for a week. I know I don’t.

    When someone writes an piece of writing he/she maintains the thought of a user in his/her brain that how a user can be aware of it. Thus that’s why this post is perfect. Thanks!
