Squirl's Nest

Well, I never...

Update! New picture below!

I don't know about the rest of you ladies but I'm feeling really insulted here.


My wonderful, Photshopping sister, Bucky, to the rescue:



Anonymous Danielle said...

hmmmm... well, the phrasing _could_ be worse. It could say

Sorry, *your* box is not a winner.

I'm sure Ichy can console you appropriately. ;-)

Good point, Danielle. I shall tell Ichabod that he needs to console me, um, appropriately. :-)

Sat Dec 10, 07:47:00 PM  
Blogger Bucky Four-Eyes said...

Nothin' appropriate about it.

Sat Dec 10, 08:08:00 PM  
Blogger Squirl said...

Bucky, the box sentence is inappropriate or the consolation??? Cause maybe inappropriate consolation would be more fun. :-)

Sat Dec 10, 08:13:00 PM  
Blogger Bucky Four-Eyes said...

Only kind worth your while...

Sat Dec 10, 08:17:00 PM  
Blogger Squirl said...

Excellent point, Bucky! Thanks!

Blogger Bucky Four-Eyes said...

And just how do they know so much about your box, anyway?

Sat Dec 10, 08:39:00 PM  
Blogger Squirl said...

I'm not sure. I must not have checked on a privacy policy somewhere along the line...

Sat Dec 10, 08:43:00 PM

ROFL, okay they shouldn't know about your box, and inappropriate consolation would be more fun, there is no doubt about it.
So have fun . . .

Oh and just to let you know how much blog world has affected my mind. When I first read it, I thought it said "Sorry your box is not a wienner." I think I have to blame that one on mrtl. But my brain has been affected. :)

That's not very nice of Special K to tell you that. :o/
What does a cereal manufacterer know about *that*?
Oh, yeah...Kellogg's corn flakes were invented by Dr. Kellogg, who thought the crispy corn concoction would make people less sexually active, therefore getting rid of all sexually contacted diseases. Or something to that effect.
I'm not making this mess up. Seriously! :oD

Ok, any such talk about anyone's box in public is just not acceptable.
Amusing though.

Pepsi boxes say this too. That's why I buy the 2 liter bottles. I can't stand my box being rejected! ;)

I see the need for the photo-shopping sister to come to the rescue, here, and restore your box's reputation, Squirl ;)

Sun Dec 11, 09:22:00 AM  
Blogger Bucky Four-Eyes said...

Let me see what I can do, Susie.

Blogger Jim said...

Some of us guys were insulted too.

But I'm sure Ichabod thinks your box is a winner - and that's REALLY what matters.

Sun Dec 11, 10:58:00 AM  
Blogger Squirl said...

Nina, I laughed the first time I saw that line. I've been planning to post that for a few weeks. You're right, there's nothing like inappropriate consolation. ;-)

The blog world is responsible for a lot of stuff. Reading things wrong is just one. And if my box is a wienner then does that make me a hermaphrodite?

M_D, yeah, I've heard about good ol' Dr Kellogg. I'm pretty sure he believed in bowel movements being extremely beneficial to ones health. But, sorry Dr K, I haven't noticed cereal making me any less active. tee hee

Ern, all right! Bucky gets that comment a lot. I rarely do. Thanks!

Kylz, absolutely! On both counts!

tshsmom, and who are they to judge us anyway? I don't take well to rejection either. ;-)

Susie, you're right. My box's reputation now needs restoring.

Bucky to the rescue!

Jim, thanks for the support. Yes, in Ichabod's eyes my box is always a winner. :-)

Nothing like sloppy Photoshop to buoy one's self esteem.

Tell your box to get down with its bad self.

Amen, Sister Bucky!

I was rendered speechless at 8 a.m. when I read this.

Here it is, 2:30, and I was so proud to finally come up with a witty comment and there is Squirl's new box... with a little PS help from the Buckmeister.

So unfair.

Chia, so sorry to render you speechless. Bucky just had her WonderPhotoshop powers going.

I guess this is one reason I won't eat cereal. I don't need comments about my box!

I finally got an appropriate word verification:

Sun Dec 11, 05:09:00 PM  
Blogger Squirl said...

Sierrabella, there's nothing like being insulted by cereal. And your word verification really is perfect. On the other hand, mine is not.

Yay! Now THA'S what I'm talkin' about :)

Thanks, Susie, for getting our little sister on the job here. :-)

mooer - I feel like I'm at Rent!

Moo with me.

I thought that one might get you, Bucky. :-)

Sucky packaging does have a way of bringing one's mood down.

So true, Mr B! Where's the YPS Gnome when you really need him?

Sun Dec 11, 08:21:00 PM  
Blogger Mr. Bloggerific Himself said...

According to Bone Machine, he's off doing some missionary work. But I ain't buyin' it myself.

Sun Dec 11, 09:29:00 PM  
Blogger hellokittn said...

As long as the gnome isn't in some loser's box, I'm cool with that.

Sun Dec 11, 10:06:00 PM  
Blogger Squirl said...

Mr B, missionary work, huh? Not sure I buy it either. We need him back here working on our packaging needs.

Chia, but he might be checking out some loser's box. You know, to check for sucky packaging.

Nice Box :)

Although I have no personal experience with your box, Squirl, I'm sure it IS a winner.

And Bucky totally rocks the PhotoShop.

August, thanks! It certainly made me giggle. :-)

Ladybug, thank you for the compliment. And Bucky sure does, doesn't she.

I think you should post a letter of reference from Ichabod, y'know, just to settle the matter once and for all.

Just sayin'.

Box, box is goooood.

- Ichabod

Mon Dec 12, 08:45:00 PM  
Blogger Squirl said...

Eclectic, I told him we needed one and he just looked at me and silently nodded. I translated that as, "Yes, your box is a winner, but I'm not writing any letter."

Thanks for askin'

Wait, we've got a faux Ichabod on here. Who is dat?

Just cracking up here. Nothing to say.

Um do you really want me to comment on your winning box? Because I will, but do you really want ME to get started?

Blogger Bucky Four-Eyes said...

Oh, come on, Jess - don't get coy on us now!

Let us hear all praise of the box.

Tue Dec 13, 07:40:00 AM  
Blogger Squirl said...

Kranki, I'm always happy to be able to crack up a fellow blogger!

Jess, I know better than to dare you. You'd jump at a dare. :-)

Bucky, yes, praise the box.

The gnome left a message on the YPS!! voice mail. The message was kind of garbled but it sounded like he said something about hookers and crack cocaine.

Sabbatical, my ass.

Blogger Squirl said...

Bone, hookers and crack cocaine. What're you guys gonna do with that that little dude?
