Truth in Advertising

Caveat emptor!
Let the buyer beware! What you see is what you get. If it tastes like chicken, it's probably fish! The check's in the mail.

"As long as people will accept crap, it will be financially profitable to dispense it." - Dick Cavett

Caveat blogum!
Let the Blogger beware! Promises were made ....

After I have been touting the virtues of the new Beta Blogger's features, the two I liked the most are not functioning.
....I wanted to add some elements to my sidebar using pictures and URLs, but since Saturday evening these two features have been unavailable.

Cave cibum, valde malus est!
Beware the food, it is very bad! A certain burger chain advertises that it's burgers contain 100% beef. This is true - the beef in them are all beef. The soy by-products are 100% soy too! Ever notice that they no longer say "all beef" patties? They got bagged!
....Now if only someone would bitch-slap them for their food not even remotely resembling the pictures on the menu boards. I knew they had burger flippers, fryalator technicians, and salad washers, but burger squashers too?

Nihil sub sole novum!
There's nothing new under the sun!

Sic friatur crustum dulce!
That's the way the cookie crumbles!

Non gradus anus rodentum!
It's not worth a rat's ass!

Nunc est bibendum!
It's time for a drink!

This Latin lesson has been brought to you by makers of the Big Mac, Beta Blogger, and the nearest cold beer you can find!

Hey, interesting changes to your blog. Sorry I've been absent - does it make the heart grow stronger? You tell me. You're the expert. And regarding those "all meat" burgers - well, I personally prefer a no-meat burger. It's a garden burger, or veggie burger as some people like to call it. It's Oh So Yummy and no meat, no dishonest advertising.

BTW, my blog is over at Moveable Type. It seems to be pretty stable and if I knew anything about it, I could do a lot with it. Isn't that just the way it stinkin' goes!?

Gidday Michael, Yep replying to Jim's tag was alot of fun (aaaaaahhhhh!!!!)though glad you liked it. I'm hopeless at remembering jokes but the two in my tag are two that I can remember, and altho' most of my friends here have heard them before, I have now sent them into cyberspace.
Hey you have good taste in favourite movies... also loved "Terminator 2" and the 1st two "Alien" movies and "The Party" was the best Peter Sellers movie next was the 1st "Pink Panther" movie.

It has been a very long time since Latin class. Thanks for the refresher.

I will keep watching to see how you progress with the beta blogger. It seems to daunting to me at this point.

I have given up on Micky D's, the BK lounge and other such establishments. Subway may be OK, but the jury is still out. Their hot sandwiches aren't always that hot.

I paid someone to do mine. I'm lazy, and she was cheap. Life is good.

Nice changes, Mike. I think that I will wait to change to Beta after they get all the bugs out of it.
