Worst Company in America, 2009!

That's right, ladies and gentleman, it's time, once again, for Consumerist's annual Worst Company in America contest. Below you see the bracket, along with my prediction of AIG for the win.

After last year's upset of Countrywide Home Loans over the ever infernal Comcast, will AIG have what it takes to beat out the competition, which includes Comcast, The Peanut Corp of America and United Healthcare?

WHO will claim this year's Golden Poo award?

Follow along with your own set here.

I cannot get over how funny this is. Oh, the hilarity.

I love math.

Walmart: Friend or Foe?

Greetings, all.

I just got back from grocery shopping at the super walmart upstate. Yes, it's obscenely late, but that's how I role. The bill came out to just over $300, which should last the BF and I about a month. Now, we haul our asses upstate once a month to do our grocery shopping, and our trip itself upstate totals at around $70, so BF and I got into a debate: would we save more money by doing our shopping in the city and applying the $70 trip money to our grocery budget?

Well, to answer my question, I went on Fresh Direct, which is how I like to do my grocery shopping in the city, since I've found their prices to be pretty much on par with the grocery stores, plus I can do my shopping in my underwear. Item by item, I went down our walmart list, and added each to the shopping cart. Then I clicked "Check Out". With tax and shipping (a reasonable $5), would you believe that my Fresh Direct bill came out to $498? Yes, that's right, I saved almost $200 by going to walmart.

So yes, walmart is an evil empire running mom and pop businesses to the ground, but dude, I'm poor, let me shop with the weirdos that come out in the middle on the night on Saturdays to do their grocery shopping. Where else can you buy a pork loin, a value package of hanes her way panties and car tires all at 1 am?

RIP, Doodlebeasts

Once upon a time there was a blog called Doodlebeasts, where a doodler would doodle fabulous, whimsicle doodles to tickle the imagination. PrincessPi, being the crazyass she is, disappeared for a while, and failed to notice that Doodlebeasts has apparently moved on to greener pastures...

Doodlebeasts, I will miss you.

What are your chances of getting a tapeworm?

When I was in college, ramen noodles were a large staple of my diet. I just couldn't afford anything else. Then one day, while eating said noodles, I was watching a documentary on the discovery channel about parasites, and these two scientists were poking around at a tapeworm in a large glass beaker. I looked at the tapeworm, looked down at my ramen...

It was a long time before I could eat noodles again.
