Either I made up lies about the Boston Bomber or I fell for someone else's crap. Either way, I have absolutely no credibility and you should never pay any attention to anything I say, no matter what the context. Perm me if I claim to be an insider

Food items themselves aren't that bad, but good fucking lord at the spelling. I am a terrible speller but even I find that pathetic.

I'll be the first one to admit when I'm writing a grocery list, spelling is the first thing to go. I'll just scribble something down without even thinking about it.

I don't know why they call this stuff hamburger helper. It does just fine by itself, huh? I like it better than tuna helper myself.

Yeah, I hate to be judgmental, but apart from the potatoes, tomatoes and eggs, just about everything on that list is "ready to serve" food. That's so baffling to me.






Edit: on second take, the list might be a less bad than I initially thought.

List is written by kids for parent.
This is obvious from the use of "we" and "you".

It's kids writing to the parent "Get more of those cakes we like!". They don't know the specific brand.

It strikes me as a list written by a child as the parent was dictating/listing stuff to be on there.

Mmmm, love e some popcikles.

Meh

Probably a poorly educated woman who had kids too early in life, trying to make the best of it for the family. The spelling is piss poor but I had no trouble figuring out what each item was, at least the handwriting is tolerable.

is it the white castle burgers?
Pretty sure it is.

What strikes me as odd is that you'd think that they've bought these things before and would figure out how they are spelled because it's right on the box.

Yeah, my handwriting is really shit compared to that.

I love cakes we like.

Also, I question the author's ability to make authentic Italian food when they list "whole pickles + stuff to make spaghetti".

Has anyone in here ever heard of dyslexia? If I had seen this thread 4 years ago I would be laughing like the rest of you, but my girlfriend is dyslexic and I know what she has to go through each and every day of her life.

This thread, and especially the website that posted the story, are ridiculous.

It says "Cerail for you and kids". Doubt it's written by a kid or for a kid.
I saw that, but still...

I mean, its similar to how some four-year-olds write :/

I suspect this means, "Get me some of those cakes we like, you remember what they are called, I myself do not."

Alternative option to make GAF feel shitty.

The list was written by the family's 90 year old, arthritic grandmother. Her cigs and cakes are the only joys she has left in this world, and you mock her spelling, penmanship, and lack of familiarity with brand names.
