Never Trust Anyone Over 30 Pounds Overweight

Ben & Jerry's will not leave me the hell alone. You may recall this entry, in which I related the tale of how Ben and Jerry stole my idea for an ice cream flavor. To recap for those of you too lazy to follow the link, I entered a Ben & Jerry's contest to invent a new holiday flavor. I didn't win, but my exact flavor showed up on store shelves that Christmas under the name "Festivus". Well, they're up to their old hippie tricks again.


Now they have
re-released MY flavor under a new name, Gingersnap. Apparently the strongly-worded letter I detailed in the previous entry had no effect. The problem is, I cannot think of a way to word my distaste any more strongly. What should I say to them this time? I know some of you people have even filthier mouths than I do. It is your time to shine.

Okay, for reals. What is wrong with these people?!

The Vegetable Assassin said...

I've always figured the reason they run these competitions is to get ideas they can use later. It's ridiculous. I mean what other reason could there be? That just sucks though.

Why would a company that makes such delicious goods be so evil? They pretend to care about free trade and the environment but they are pirates. You need to send in on the next competition but certify the letter so if they use your idea you legally have some claim to it.

I feel for ya, but, honestly, it can't be all that great since it only has 39 fans.

Ooh, it makes me want to (ginger)snap their necks.

You know, I would feel bad for you if you didn't lie so much. Them leave you alone? You know you email those guys like every day. You even sent me those sonnets you wrote.

Man, what a liar.

Falwless said...

I didn't even realize the irony of that comment in relation to your post title.

Phenomenal.
