Just say NO!

In 2006 Hershey bought socially responsible chocolate company Dagoba.

In 2007 Clorox bought socially responsible personal hygiene company Burt’s Bees.
In 2006 Colgate Palmolive bought the primarily vegan Tom’s of Maine personal health care company.
Now Hershey wants to purchase British chocolate company Cadbury.

On another note, Chris despises when people say “bless you” or some-such equivalent when he sneezes. Β “Why do you want someone bringing attention to that loud honking noise you just made and the fact that you now have a handful of snot to deal with?”he asks.
His new idea is to say “bless you” whenever anyone farts.
I like it!

  1. Actually the origin of the “bless you” or “God Bless you” when someone sneezes comes from the first onset of the black plague.
    Sneezing was 1 of the first symptoms of the illness.

    Also the May pole song “…ashes, ashes, we all fall down” was first sung as “achoo, achoo, we all fall down” and was another reference to the black plague early symptoms and the often end result of getting it (death).

    Just a little folk history for you this day. πŸ™‚

    I say “Gesundheit” when someone sneezes. It is german (and I may have the spelling off by a letter or 2) but it means “good health” or even more a wish for you to be in good health. I have always liked that: a very down to earth and hearthfelt sentiment to pass on to others. πŸ™‚

    As for farting my grandfather used to say “pull my finger” and would proceed to fart on command with the pull. It became a family joke and always brought smiles to everyones' faces. Not a bad thing indeed. πŸ™‚
