Finally, a definition of globalization that I can understand:

Question:

What is the truest definition of Globalization?

Answer:

Princess Diana’s death.

Question:

Why?

Answer:

An English princess with an Egyptian boyfriend crashes in a French tunnel, driving a German car with a Dutch engine, driven by a Belgian who was drunk on Scottish whiskey, followed closely by Italian paparazzi on Japanese motorcycles; treated by an American doctor, using Brazilian medicines.

This is sent to you by an American, using Bill Gate’s technology and you are probably reading this on your computer,
that uses Taiwanese chips and a Korean monitor, assembled by Bangladeshi workers in a Singapore plant; transported by Indian lorry-drivers, hijacked by Indonesians, unloaded by Sicilian longshoremen and trucked to you by illegal Mexican workers…

And that is what Globalization is :)

If there were any other British people around I'd make a joke about Tru working for the Daily Express but there aren't so I won't.

Remind me again, please: does the Daily Express have any quality, or do they focus on quantity only?
Bonus question: where do they have their Page 3 Girls?

It's not really THAT kind of paper. You want the Daily Star for that. ;)

Atch. Whelp Tru, it amused me. Guess it should have been predictable that TLers would take it as serious business.

Sure as heck not taking it as a joke. I have standards. It doesn't reach them.

I think that the internet is a definition of globalization that we can all understand, and it will become more so as the years go on. But as BS says, your sense of humor is like your thumbprint. ;)

Frenzy, it's spelled "prawn," and the Internet probably isn't the best place to be ordering those. I definitely go to a local seafood market, or if you're close enough head to the beach and talk to the shrimpers. Fresh seafood is always, always better than stuff that's been frozen and shipped across the border from wherever.

Looks like there's some daikon radish in there too, no? And what appears to be bok choy.

I should start cooking again... I get way to excited about looking at food porn.

ooghfff...I think I'm going to vomit. I can't believe you even held that in your hand.

Y'know, when I was twelve or thirteen I worked for this horse trainer guy, cleaning stalls and feeding the horses. He was a real asshole and his horse was a bastard too. It'd try to bite you whenever you got near it and he'd just laugh and if it bit you he'd tell you to move faster. Me and my friend Kris went and bought 2 boxes of exlax and fed it to that horse the night before he re-shoed it. You don't mess with teenagers who have big imaginations and are tired of getting bit by your horse. That next day was the most fun I ever had working for that douchebag. There's just something about a big mean cowboy with horseshit running off of his cowboy hat screaming "it's in my mouth, oh god, it went in my mouth!!" that makes me smile to this day.

What did that have to do with anything?

~Looks at Firseals cookie~ maybe something, maybe not...

Are you sure you're digesting it? It might be festering in there.

That kind of made me chuckle until I remembered the security camera feed I saw when I was a teenager of a zoo vet's assistant who checked to see if his sick elephant was responding to the laxitive yet and ended up getting knocked out by the force of the response and drowning. Then it made me sad.

I think the moral is don't give drugs to large animals.

I have learned that lesson, but I had this hunger for a bit of nostalgia. I really miss those days and saw a chance to relive a bit of them. If I must suffer severe indigestion and curious side effects for that, so be it.

If explosive diarrhea is your definition of curious side effects...

Good news.

Nothing in that cookie will cause diarrhea.

Bad news.

The explosive part may be correct.
