Shopping With Champions...

Last night I went to the grocery store. The guy behind me purchased the following:
1 Banquet Brand "Spaghetti & Meatballs" Frozen TV Dinner (like Mom used to make!)
1 40oz Bottle of Miller Brand Beer

And when you saw this small, stout, shaved headed, middle aged man purchasing his groceries, one can vividly picture him settling down with his dinner, popping in the latest pornographic digital video disc, and kicking back for the rest of the evening. I shook my head at his sad situation and drove home, where I settled down, alone, on my couch to watch Ang Lee's latest epic, Lust, Caution, while eating Dreyer's Loaded Brand Toll House Mint Chocolate Brownie Ice Cream directly from the carton.

The guy behind me in line last night at Vons bought two cans of Progresso clam chowder, two frozen chicken pot pies, a bag of popcorn, a bag of Dove chocolates...and ten assorted bottles of Gatorade. Red, green, yellow, and a couple of purples. Whattya make of that?
