And now for something completely different...

Today while taking a break from burning our mouths and ruining our diets with spicy snack foods, one of our team members decided to eat some actual food. What happened next can only be described as a perfect example of the care and consideration that goes into today's marketing strategies. Seen below is a picture of a can of vegetable soup. Read the label closely.

Meijer Organics Vegetable Soup. Blend of organic corn, potatoes, and...geen beans. GEEN BEANS???? Are we kidding here? This is not a small oversight. A number of people designed, accepted, typed, printed, and glued this label. And yet...we are left with a glaring typo. How many cans were printed like this? How was this possible put on the shelf with such an obvious mistake? One can only wonder what else is overlooked, when the writing on the label is so carelessly handled. Meijer is a large company. They should have people to catch this sort of thing. Pathetic.

The Geen Bean is a very rare animal in the wild that takes much focus and orderly wits to not only capture, but cook and clean for such a soup!
