500,000 or 1,000,000? 500,000 or 1,000,000 what? Calories. We've adopted cell phone-style pricing. $29.99 a day buys 500,000 food calories per year. $49.99 get 1,000,000. Pick the contract you want. What if I go over? We'll fine you $100 for every extra calorie. So guess carefully. Sell me bullets. I'm going to kill myself. 500 g or 1 kg? Huh? Total bullet weight contract. Which one?
