    Do you ever put food where it doesn't belong?

    Yesterday evening I opened a bag of spinach for dinner, and decided to fold it, put a chip clip on the bag, and stick it back in the fridge. This morning I go to the pantry to get some cling wrap, and lo and behold there is the bag of spinach sitting in there! :bonk: I know when I was younger...

    Nabisco Premium Mini's...

    Moviegoer tells woman to stop talking, gets stabbed w/ meat thermometer.

    This is food related, right? Who takes a meat thermometer to the movies anyway? Are they checking if their hotdog is kept at a safe temperature? :bonk:
