Either smugly or obliviously i learned that a lot of people buy but few can spell bananas i learned that a grocery list can sometimes make you feel sad and i laughed aloud three times When I saw this title I knew I had to get my greedy hands on itThis is so clever now we get to peek inside people s lives I mean eventhough just a simple grocery list it is still someone s thought process or mood we get to seeI can see this website grocerylistsorg being a hit You get to be interactive with others You can share a list to go viralHowever as a book this is so much harder to get through After just a few lists it becomes monotonous There are trivia bits thrown in to break it up but usually those were pretty random and had nothing to o with either the chapter theme or the list beforeafter it According to US Food Drug Administration regulations ground paprika is allowed up to 20% mold 75 insect fragments and 11 rodent hairs per 25 grams and tomato puree may contain 9 fly eggs and 1 maggot per 100 grams What irked me the most was the commentary #On The Lists Which #the lists Which mean spirited than funny Jokes on how someone must be stupid because of misspellings Are you stupid or what Anyway id you know Skunk eggs Cowboy slang for onions 25 Milk Eggs Vodka is a collection of iscarded or lost shopping lists The premise is cool and it s easy to think that we might find some insight into human nature through these but frankly it s also a little boring For every list with a surprising item or interesting phrase there were five or six that were just your basic average everyday grocery list The author attempts to liven up the book with snappy captions and bizarre foodgrocery facts on every page In some cases the captions add to the list and make it funnier For example in the party section one list appeared that had AAA batteries and the caption alluded to a party of one making an otherwise ordinary list elicit a good chuckle On the other hand many of the captions were cheesy attempts at humor or just making fun of the imagined life that the list writer might have Although there is an entire section evoted to misspellings and another for grammatical specifically apostrophe mistakes much of the book s humor throughout other chapters is still Rehab Doesnt Work - Ibogaine Does devoted to making fun of these common problems As a high school English teacher I guess I mesensitized to seeing things spelled wrong or punctuated improperly If a student is willing to hand in a paper for grading with said problems I

This is a book about grocery lists the found type which the author has here collected for 10 years much now of course It s probably fun to imagine stories behind each The oldest shopping list is the one found in a UK Roman fort from c80 AD there s also one from 1950s and 1970s shown At the end index items on each list are listed from AW root beer to zucchini Scattered on pages are also fun facts like how many variations of rice exist 100000 that Native Americans invented baked beans how long food stays safe Instagram Twitter Facebook Pinterest I m an incredibly nosy person When I used to work as a grocery cashier I would always be mildly amused by the things that people would put on the conveyor belt and imagine what kind of lives they #lived and what their hobbies were like And then there were the #and what their hobbies were like And then there were the encounters as well like the people trying to buy alcohol with no ID or the time I told someone buying two boxes of condoms without thinking to have a good night and then regretted that Alchemy Arts deadpan automatic clerk politeness with all my heartThis book is a collection of found grocery lists that were submitted to a guy who keeps a blog about lists I recently read another found book which were all the rage until online communities went mainstream and people started sharing these sorts of things for free I liked the grocery lists because I feel like each one was a little story about the person who wrote it but after a while the premise wore a little thin There s only so many times you can see someone saying they bought milk or eggs before you re like SOThe saving grace of this book were the little extras thrown in food trivia and facts a restored table someone working in a grocery store had covered inecoupaged coupons people had thrown on the floor a grocery list someone had Chevy Chase
