I can't even begin to unpack the wrong of this ad.
Good grief, it's a running gag: food glorious foodlady_ganesh on October 27th, 2012 03:47 am (UTC)
HALF A TABLESPOON OF OIL WITH YOUR CARROTS, PLS.

Boil those carrots... before they boil YOU!

The standing carrot looks a lot like David Cameron.

Maybe it's because I've been watching a lot of "Wiseguy", lately, but I saw those carrots as mobsters? lol Plus, it's sort of weird that the carrots are celebrating being popular FOOD, since, well, they're being eaten. o_O (Yes, I overthink things.)

Robert De Niro in The Untouchables, right before he lets loose with the baseball bat!

"add half a tablespoon of Wesson Oil for each person served"

Well, yeah, because it's not enough to boil all the taste and nutrition out of an otherwise healthy vegetable; you have to add empty calories to really f*** them up.

I'll have mine steamed, please, and stop right there!

Actually cooking and adding fat improves the absorption of the beta-carotene in carrots by about a third.

I didn't know that. In that case, pass the butter!
Whodunnit?: Lionsoh_meow on October 20th, 2012 06:09 pm (UTC)
Carrots are really nice if you slice them, parboil them, and the roast them in the oven with butter and black pepper

I've never tried oven-roasted carrots. I might try that. Thanks!

YES!! I second this motion!!!

I knew that nutrition class would be useful one day.

My favorite way to prepare carrots is also roasting. First, I steam them for a few minutes then mix with Yukon gold potatoes, sweet potatoes, red onions, minced garlic, parsley, and a drizzle of olive oil. I roast the whole kit and kaboodle at 350 for an hour, turning after 30 minutes. It is a great side dish and makes for happy vegetarians at the holidays: )

That does sound good! I have become a fan of oven roasting veggies in olive oil.

If anyone starts a veggie version of Suicide Food (currently meat only), this should be top of the list.

suicide food almost sounds like a good idea for a contest theme.....or a weekend....what do you think?
Man Writing Slashwrite_light on October 20th, 2012 03:24 pm (UTC)
It would work quite well :D
Miss Tia's Journal: LJ SUCKS VIVA LA DWmisstiajournal on October 21st, 2012 12:22 am (UTC)
you think there'd be enough for a whole contest or for a weekend? i should query the group, but i'll just ask you here now.....
Man Writing Slashwrite_light on October 21st, 2012 03:31 am (UTC)
Weekend most likely.
Miss Tia's Journal: LJ SUCKS VIVA LA DWmisstiajournal on October 21st, 2012 11:49 am (UTC)
that's what i was thinking too!!! thank you for your feedback!! i'll put this on the weekend theme list! :)

I dunno. They look more like members of the Carrot Mafia than suicide food. Odds are they're celebrating having sent the Easter Bunny to swim with the fishes.

Our Wesson brings all the carrots to the pot...
TudorLadytudorlady on October 20th, 2012 05:03 pm (UTC)
Got a year and source for this? I'd love to know where it appeared.
Kim, Meezer Queen and Equestrienne: nectar of lifemeezergal on October 20th, 2012 05:39 pm (UTC)
In the ad, it says, "Our slogan for 1936..." No idea of source, though.

I was kind of amazed at the idea of pouring oil in with boiling veg - but when Chinese greens are cooked peanut or sesame oil is often added, sometimes heated to smoking point.

I wonder what kind of oil Wesson was/is?

khh1138: Kimiko Sad Snowkhh1138 on October 20th, 2012 10:22 pm (UTC)
I know, I've never heard of adding oil to boiling water except as a mistake that people often make when making pasta...
mellzie_1963: madmenmellzie_1963 on October 21st, 2012 01:18 am (UTC)
"I wonder what kind of oil Wesson was/is?"

Back then, it would have been cottonseed oil. Nowadays, Wesson's "vegetable oil" product is soybean oil. They also market canola oil, corn oil, and a canola/soybean blend.

It's a gun lubricant, recommended for Smith&Wesson guns.
