Just read an article about 15 of the most recession-proof products on the market as being:
1. Chocolate (Hershey profits up 20%)
2. Running shoes (spurt in sales right after Wall St. decline)
3. Kraft Mac and Cheese (double digit growth)
4. Cheap wine (California wine totaled record 467 million gallons in 2008)
5. Condoms (5% growth in sales)
6. Gold coins (Idahoâ��s Sunshine Minting had to double workforce last year)
7. Gardening seeds (up 40%)
8. Self tanning products
9. Spam (up 6%)
10. Cheap lipstick
11. Fishing equipment
12. Online dating sites (Match.com strongest performance in 7 years)
13. Laxatives (up 11.5%)
14. Stomach remedy (Pepto-Bismol and Phillips up 8%)
15. Guns (Smith & Wesson up 27.5%)
So if I read this correctly, all of us in the U.S. are eating crap food and drinking too much, trying desperately to run it off cuz we can't afford the gym anymore, having way too much sex with people we just met online, converting our money to gold so we can hide it in the mattress, getting sick and stressed out over all of it and then thinking about robbing banks for a living?
Laxatives is only at number 13? Well, we need to get that higher. I think it's lack of laxatives and people full of shite that got us here anyway!
Well yeah, they decided to flush us down the drain for good.
And clearly the seeds are that Mary Jane stuff if you watch CNBC's little advertisement for the Mendicino pot industry. I will stay with you till my seeds are dried uh huh.
Oh wait, most of you don't even know who Eric Clapton is because you are too young, lol.
I wonder if the owners of hubpages wander up to Mendicino county for any reason other than wine, lol.
Fetzer and whatever
The orange Mac and Cheese is not the best though. One thing I do if it is the only thing I have on hand is dump out the yellow powder and mix the noodles with a bit of tomato sauce. Cheap and much less sodium than mac and cheese .
