Where Peanut Butter Web Pages Go to Die

In a good example of whatever you put on the internet or in emails may come back to haunt you (hey, note that this stuff was "organic certified"), I found this choice quote by Stewart Parnell, President (a.k.a. “I’ll take the fifth Parnell") on this web archive site link:

At Peanut Corporation of America, we’ve become “The Processor of the World’s Finest Peanut Products” by delivering quality products and services at a fair price. Since its founding in 1976, Peanut Corporation has set the standard for peanut processing, providing customers worldwide with the highest quality product and reliable, on-time delivery.

We look forward to the opportunity to serve you.

If it was not so damned sad and criminal, it would be pathetic.

  • Ah, this isn’t criminal language, it’s just marketing. (Wait … heh.) The guys who ordered the tainted products shipped probably never read that text. What’s criminal is that we allow the company to file bankruptcy protection. That, to me, is disgusting, sad and pathetic.
    And hey: keep up the good work.
