Yodels

I love Yodels even though they pretty much suck now.

Ok, so I have had this conversation about Yodels about a hundred times and it still gets me fired up.

Do you remember Yodels about thirty years ago? They weren’t the same as they are now. First of all they were made with real chocolate, not this mostly wax bullshit. They were also individually wrapped in foil. The cakes were soft and the filling creamy.

The whole world is going this way. Companies are under great pressure from shareholders to show compounded annual growth of 10% or more each year or else. So what happens? Yodels get fucked in the ass because some greedy fuck needs another yacht. Booooo!

I would gladly pay $10 for a box of real Yodels (about double the price) but some dickhead executive buyer at Walmart would find a way to fuck that up too. Booooo on Walmart where the policy is that we will not be undersold because we will give shit away at a loss until our competitors fold and our suppliers fuck their employees out of a reasonable wage.

I have hope though. Yesterday I had a bowl of Raisin Bran and I could swear there were three scoops in that box.

I digress.

    I moved to TX a number of years ago. No Drakes or Tasty Kakes here. I agree, the quality of nearly everything has suffered.

    Thanks for this blog. I’ve been praying for some guidance lately and I stumbled on your thoughts. Some are very powerful and really speak directly to me. I’ve been seeknig a reason for sobriety again after four years out. This disease is miserable and it ruins lives.

    Anyway, please keep the thoughts coming and thanks again!!

    By the way, your thoughts on kindness and praying for the assholes in our lives has recently helped me regain some spiritual traction. Just wanted to let you know, that God is clearly at work here.
