On the way home from the gym today I dropped by the store. One of the things I picked up was a bottle of peach-flavored O Water. It’s sitting here next to me as I try to get some work done and my eyes were drawn to what is printed on the bottle:

  • NO Sugar
  • NO Sweeteners
  • NO Arsenic
  • NO Bromate
  • NO Nitrates
  • NO Cholrine

Excuse me? “NO Arsenic?” What the hell? I’d like to think that pointing out a lack of arsenic in the food I buy to be about as useful as pointing out that it doesn’t contain a Chevrolet.

I mean, really people. That is just silly.
