Doesn't sound too appetizing to me...

The other day, I opened a fresh jar of mayonnaise. Emblazoned across the seal of the jar was the following message:

CONVENIENT SHATTERPROOF JAR
MAKES A GREAT SALAD

I'm not certain if they are saying that the jar should be included in the salad, or if I should make the salad IN the jar, but either way it doesn't sound too appetizing...

If the jar won't break, it's hard to put it in the salad.

Sorry to go off topic, but would somebody please tell Paul that neither one of the links to SayAnything in his post 'Reuters "Seals" Their Own Fate' is working. I'd tell him myself, but he's closed comments. I am sending Kevin an e-mail about it, so maybe he can fix them.

Maybe the jar is actually a robot that will make the salad for you.

Fatman, SayAnything appears to be down right now. Those links were likely working at some point, but the site is experiencing technical difficulties.

And on topic, you'd be surprised at how chewy and filling those convenient shatterproof jars are.

The problem probably comes from the original being written in spanish, then it lost something in translation. I was trying to buy light bulbs at Home Depot the other day, all I could find were cases of Blanco Bombillas, which I assumed were stupid bombs, in there place...

Altho it would indeed not be convenient to do so, you could in fact shatter the container quite easily. Dunk it in liquid nitrogen and then hit it with a hammer.
