Mmmm… whey

Our coops at work finished their term today. One of them left a big bucket of that Super-Mega-Beefcake Ultra-Weightgainer Protein Shake crap for some reason. I was reading the label text, and finding some considerable amusement therein.

“When it comes to picking the perfect protein to support optimal muscle growth and peak performance, you don’t need a bunch of marketing hype and empty promises.”

Ok, fair enough. So, let’s have it… and no marketing hype, right?

“… It also means that the greatest possible concentration of bioactive microfractions is preserved. These microfractions are vital for promoting whey protein’s famed immune enhancing effects.”

Whoa… bioactive microfractions. Not your ordinary garden-variety microfractions… we’re talking bioactive microfractions. And that isn’t just marketing hype.

So, ummm, what is a microfraction anyway? Is that, like, a millionth of a fraction?

Mmmm… ginger

This is going to sound like a shill, but it’s not… really.

I just want to say… damn, I love Vernor’s Ginger Ale. I don’t know who it is that had the crazy idea to put some ginger in the Ginger Ale.  But I’d really like to shake his hand.
