Sour Cream is People!!!! Silly Chilly and Meeting Sked

Good morning, Granbys! Today is Dec. 6, 2011; there are 25 days left in the year.

OK, kids, there’s a lot to disagree about. Paper vs. plastic. Democrat vs. Republican. . But there is one thing that we all should be in universal accord. Sour cream is freakin’ awful. You want to ruin any culinary delight? Plop a dollop of sour cream on it and you have Instant Gross(tm).

I know, I know, I know. There are people who swear by the stuff. I know one dude - who evidently doesn’t have taste buds - who eats sour cream like ice cream. Well, I’m here to burst your bubble, people, with an epiphany so earth-shattering, it’s nothing short of when Charlton Heston discovered that Soylent Green was people. The answer lies in sour cream’s name. It’s cream that’s GONE SOUR. ZOMG! C’mon, kids!

Stay with me. If you had cream in your fridge that went past its expiration date and it smelled like a teenage boy’s gym shoe, you’d throw it out, right? You certainly wouldn’t go, ‘Honey, keep it. We can put it on our tacos later.’ But somehow, the all-powerful sour-cream lobby has kept us in the dark by hiding the truth in plain sight. Don’t be fooled. Sour cream by any other name would still be disgusting.
