Natural

How many people make assumptions without reading the fine print. Even subconsciously accepting they know what a word means so everyone should know and agree with that meaning. Guess what, there are people who would not tell the truth in order to profit. Shocking, I know, but it's sadly true. What's worse is people who would lie to have sex with you. Really the n'ere dowells are out there lying in wait... see what I did there.

Yup. I can also see you could stand to spell "ne'er-do-well" rather better.

Marketing sugar might be politely described as "interesting."

Perhaps somewhat more so than marketing single malt whisky?

Dana taught the proper spelling of ne'er-do-well long ago and I could have used it if I wanted to, but I chose to use the band N'ere Dowells. I'm not surprised you didn't get it, even after "see what I did there". Glad you're getting plenty of pain meds.

The best new term is "clean" food.

Don't know, natural brown sugar would be sugar and mole asses, but since they put a disclaimer on natural it very well may be sugar and caramel.

I've always been wary of the word natural when used to promote some product or other.

After all, deadly nightshade is natural and it's er.... deadly.

Hey, don't be dissing good garden dirt, the original condiment, helps your gizzard grind the goop into poop, scratches your itchy hemorrhoids too.
