Strange and Funny Food Promotions

The American holiday of Thanksgiving is almost here and this annual celebration, probably more so than any others, typically involves a lot of exertion in shopping for food. We Americans hold our Thanksgiving Day feast in high regard, and are prepared and ready to tackle grocery lines and high prices in the pursuit of getting the perfect foods to set on our tables. Unfortunately, this job often turns into a royal headache well before the actual preparation of the meal begins.

So I thought it might be fun to give the headache a little reprieve by looking at some humorous food promotions, and have gathered some collected images to share with you. While these promotions don't all focus on Thanksgiving, they do all pertain to food. And I hope you'll get a kick out of them as I have.


A "bargain" here - and If they dropped the price of this butter any lower it might take flight.


An example of honesty-in-advertising.


A good special here..uh no.


A variety of fruit so rare it hasn't even been named yet!


A variety of tangerines I've never seen in the grocery store.


A candy that's just as tasty the second day, almost as tasty the third, hardly there the fourth and ready to give to the dog by the fifth.


I just recently learned about this nifty vegan beverage. And mm, mm, no thanks!


I'm sorry, but we Caucasians prefer the racially sensitive term, cracker pastries.


Reserve me a table!!


Yeah right, this ain't the way Farmer John's wife tells it!


Strawberry flavored? No way. If I'm going to serve poop tarts to my family, they darned well be natural fudge flavored!


Now we know why the town dentist rakes in the money.


What, no snake meat? Looks like I'll be doing my Christmas meat shopping elsewhere!


And for all you hunters out there, you might do well to take this sage advice from a highly educated vegan!

These are hilarious Beth. I am still laughing. I think I'll give those "poop tarts" a miss though. :)
