June 3 - International Styrofoam Day


As some of you may know, I was viciously attacked by a rogue piece of styrofoam in December, and barely escaped. It was only through the clever use of my bread knife that I managed to get away, and there were still casualties. I sustained a cut across my thumb that bled freely, and to this day , not only bears a rather dashing scar, but is also numb.

That's right, styrofoam made my thumb numb.

So on this day, I issue a call to arms, and say ERADICATE ALL STYROFOAM!

Do not be seduced by it's promises to keep things hot, or it's insistence on forming peanuts and infiltrating your packages. Stand firm! Wave the Bread Knife Of Justice at the Styrofoam Of Evil and help avert the destruction of All We Hold Dear!

DOWN WITH STYROFOAM!

I'm not quite sure what to say? Styrofoam of malicious intent? I just don't want to believe it! No! I can't believe it! Styrofoam is my friend!

That's just what Styrofoam wants you to think!

What about that poor McDonald's patron who was viciously attacked when hot coffee came pouring out of a Styrofoam cup without any warning. who is to blame for that??? Now every Styrofoam coffee cup must come with a cation label. So the conspirator had to be Styrofoam. Why else would they have to change the way they handle coffee?

Do you think Styrofoam could have been involved in the Kennedy assassination?

(I do....now)

I can totally get behind this day. I have a ton of styrofoam peanuts in bags in our garage. I can't stand that evil stuff. I loathe it. And those blasted styrofoam cups are even worse. Argh! Thanks Tracy for allowing me to vent.

I'm serious, styrofoam's a bastard. You should see my scar.

Styrofoam peanuts are worst of all...they're like tons of mini malintent-focused foam! And they can work as a team! They even have mini commanders and maps to your house.

Ewwwww! And the noise they make when you crinkle them. Sooo...evil. Sooo...awful.

I am a born anti-Styrofoam user. My friends say am very bourgoise and that I think am too much of a lady refusing to drink in them. I'll have to introduce them to your thumb! Down down Styrofoam!

It's a matter of training. Styrofoam can be a loyal and faithful companion. It will keep you afloat when shipwrecked at sea, it keep you warm when used as an armchair and it will allow you to express yourself by letting you sculpt & shape it.
If you still find that you cannot develop a relationship with it get acquainted with his twin brother polystyrene ;-).

Styrofoam is rather wicked. Can't even drink from a styrofoam cup--hurts my teeth. That and it is so anti-earth... just refuses to decompose like normal stuff. Ashes to ashes? Yeah, the s-foam don't roll that way.
