Jumbo Shrimp

When I was a youngster I thought that "a little big" and "pretty ugly" was the height of humor. More recently I have been amused by thoughts of "marijuana initiative" and "social work". I never dared to push the range of the oxymoron as far as the manufacturer of this product, which my son purchased in part so that I could share his discovery.

They obviously misspelled “gourmand”.

There's something seriously wrong with the nutrition data. If the package contains 5 servings at 14 grams each, the total in the package is 70 grams of product. The label, however, states there are 90 grams (?) worth of calories. WTF?

Of course, it says it was inspected and passed by the USDA so it must be okay. Maybe it was passed by one of those blind and ignorant inspectors hired under the Americans with Disabilities or the EEOC programs.
