Large Olives

January 24, 2017

Cheap, Journal, Lloyd

I’ve wanted to do this experiment for a long time. When Lauren told me that I had to write the post, I knew that my time had come. Extra large olives cost more than medium olives (I don’t actually remember what they cost. Just go with me here). But if all you’re doing is slicing them up to put on, I don’t know, two weeks worth of tacos, is it worth it?

I think everyone can agree that the moral of this story is, “Don’t let Lloyd write any more posts.”

    So, which weigh more?

      Um, maybe I should have used more words. (A) Both cans weigh the same. (B) The extra large olives cost more. (C) You get more olives with the medium olives by half an once. (D) That’s something like 15% more olives for your dollar. (E) I really like using letter when I type. (F) Over the course of a lifetime I could save nearly $14.56. (G) that’s less than I expected. (H) I’d do it anyway. Because (I) like to stick it to the man.

    Do the cans say they have the same weight?
    Is a half ounce a significant amount? I don’t think I know what an ounce is…

    Okay, I just checked the internet. An slice of bread weighs about an ounce. The difference in your olives is one half slice of bread.

    I think the issue isn’t your writing, it’s your photo cropping. Small olives weighed more, right?
