AF The real sacrifice is what we put ourselves through for you, dear readers.
Sometimes, there are some things you just can't make up. Take for example "National Cheese Purchase Sacrifice Day." Aside from other websites that are equally as baffled by its origin as we are, the mysterious National Cheese Purchase Sacrifice Day seemingly aims to do a combination of the following things: relieve you of otherwise much-needed monies, rid your home of furry vermin, and continue the proliferation of ridiculous "holidays" that keep the greeting card industry zipping along at a racecar's pace.
Well, we here at Clean Plate Charlie seldom shy away from food trends, and in the interest of trying to enjoy this "holiday," we put in some R&D into today's blog. The basic rule for this food holiday is that you buy yourself a cheese and sacrifice it to a mousetrap. This is kind of morbid, and we wonder why the PETA people haven't launched a campaign against it.
Oh well, before we share our findings, we'd sure be a bunch of dicks if we didn't ask you to first consider volunteering and/or donating to Feeding South Florida and Hands On Broward before spending your dosh and wasting a perfectly good bit of food. It certainly is the right thing to do. Plus if you do have mice in your home, use peanut butter in your trap. It works better than cheese.More »
