    And the peas got into the dessert, main course, potatoes…

    Ewwww! TV dinners! And this is the Pennys’ idea of haute cuisine! GAH! I’ll bet they’re not even name-brand TV dinners, just some generic crap. I think I need some BB, stat!

    And who do they cheat if they eat dessert first? Will it matter if some one leaves some Salisbury steak uneaten?

    Joy is so worried about being cheated in some way that she can’t understand, she devises rules so people can’t even cheat themselves,
    Just in case it would somehow be unfair to her.

    Pacop… well, do you think she should leave it open?


    Who else thinks Joy’s apron said something when this panel was used before? Looks like writing that’s scribbled over….
    and I’ve been amusing myself trying to figure out what it said.

    And who else thinks Marlene has never thrown out a dessert in her life?

    It’s the story she gives Dale when she gobbles both little cobblers before bringing the trays to the table

    No burnt, scraped bits?
    No, honey, I said I overheated them..

    Note to Joy and Burl: Never, ever throw away a bill from the IRS. They never forget and have no sense of humour about that. Ignore them too long and Guido shows up at your door.

    I never eat the deserts anyway. I’m surprised they don’t eat the deserts and throw away the main course.

    …well they tried to get into the movies posing as children to save a few cents, so what’s the difference in eating the dessert first! Anyone ever see the album cover to National Lampoon’s “radio dinner”?

    TV dinners? Gag…I used to eat them when I lived in my first apartment. Even though they have some that taste better and look more like real food, they are still poisonous. I can’t believe someone would have a dinner party with this stuff. Maybe we should have some brain bleach after-dinner drinks. lol

    What you’re all missing is the fact that it’s incomprehensible that this bunch would ever be satisfied with the meager portions on a TV dinner. This is merely the warm-up snack before the “real” meal: pressure formed, pre-cooked turkey-like breast meat, casserole made with Can-O-Beans brand green beans, store brand generic mushroom soup (now with 20% real mushrooms and 15% less school paste), and Grease-O brand fried onion skin strips. Also artificial butter flavored powdered “mashed potatoes” reconstituted with tap water, semi-thawed frozen apple pie (now with 10% real apples) and imitation vanilla iced milk product. With side relish of semi-pitted green olives and cranberry flavored jelly (tastefully served to preserve the original can shape). Beverage is lemon-like flavored powdered iced tea.

    I am so sick & tired of people bad mouthing tap water.
    Tap water is cheaper, convenient & good for you.
