Oreos will survive the apocalypse
« on: October 25, 2020, 01:46:47 PM »
I think maybe this article escaped from Airboy's Babylon Bee  :idiot2:

Quote
The threat of asteroids striking the Earth and causing a global catastrophe has inspired some groups to build bunkers to not only protect survivors, but also to ensure the safety of certain plants and animals. Now, the makers of Oreo have ensured that the popular snack will live past any possible asteroid strikes.

In a video published on its YouTube page, Oreo says it was inspired by the Global Seed Vault in Svalbard, Norway. According to the seed vault’s website, it is a storage facility for various seeds that has been designed and built to withstand both natural and manmade disasters. It is located above the permafrost line, placing it in the Arctic Circle.

Meh, powdered milk with Oreos  L:-)   

I quit buying Oreos years ago anyway.  Think they changed the receipe.  Don't taste near as good as I remember growing up.

I had an arguement at work on Hydrox one time. My somewhat younger coworkers didn’t believe they existed.
Insert witty comment here.

Bwahaha you know, I don't know if they still do actually exist. It's been about 35 years since I've had one or seen one anywhere.

"Hydrox" sounds like a brand of bleach
It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge.  War endures.  As well ask men what they think of stone.  War was always here.  Before man was, war waited for him.  The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.  That is the way it was and will be.  That way and not some other way.
- Cormac McCarthy, Blood Meridian


If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

I guess it's sort of nice that the word "tactical" seems to refer to some kind of seriousness during your moments of mental clarity.

"Hydrox® is the original creme-filled chocolate sandwich cookie! It debuted in 1908 and was manufactured by Sunshine® Biscuits. Sunshine Biscuits was purchased by Keebler® in 1996, and in 1999, Keebler® replaced Hydrox® with a similar but reformulated product named Droxies®."

The Internet is an absolutely wonderful thing (so are the Keebler Elves).

Wow I complete forget about Hydrox.  I only tried them once and I seem to remember that they were no match for Oreos.

I remember being so poor growing up we had to buy Hydroxes. ...Hydroxii? But I didn't mind. Quantity has a quality all its own, especially to a 6 year old.

Now this so-called "reformulation"? I'm suspicious of it. Droxies? Sounds like Orc mischief to me.


Meanwhile, at least the cockroaches will have something to eat, if Oreos have a vault!

True, but cockroaches can't twist the top off an Oreo to lick the crème in the center the way they were meant to be eaten.   :notworthy:    They can't can they? Please tell me they can't.

^In New York City the roaches can't twist an Oreo but the waterbugs...my God, the waterbugs. Most disgusting things you will ever encounter. They can twist your damned face off.

Anyway...BEWARE THE NORTHERN RAIDS OF THE HYDROXII!

I can see it now - Oreos and Twinkies fighting it out for shelf space in the post-apocalyptic trading post.

Twinkies, yeah.  I don't think they ever "spoil".   And don't forget the mummified McDonald burgers and fries. :buck2:
