Funny Foto Friday: TV Dinner Slurry

Since I am now working in town, have a baby that "the man" says that I need to feed and clothe, and even wine prices are on the rise(!!!!), I've been bringing my lunch to work.  To be clear, this doesn't mean that I whip up some Desperate Housewives style 4 course meal.  Usually I throw in a TV dinner, a brownie the size of my fist, and an apple. You know, something healthy to offset the massive brownie and the 9,000mg of sodium.

Well, about a week back, I heated up a Marie Calendar Thanksgiving dinner and THIS is what popped out. Obviously, Marie focused a little bit too much on the pie and not enough on the main course.  I have not started to eat this.

Mmm, tastes like oatmeal? Mud? Vomit?


Bonus!!  I feel that there has been a severe lack of poop humor on this blog (I think that I had a post last week that didn't have any).  Happy Friday!

Did you mean "...THIS is what pooped out"

Kim (Book Worm Runs) said...

Confession: not only have I texted while on the toilet but I have also been known to bring my laptop in there with me :) Have a great weekend!

Kate said...

First picture is disgusting, second is hilarious. I think the smart phone is the new bathroom magazine.

Regarding lunches, I tend to make a little extra for dinner and take leftovers for my work lunch. Beats Marie's dinners for a longshot.

When we got married, my eating-lunch-out type of husband wanted to buy a new TV. I made him bring his lunch and he got to put $5 in the "tv jar" every time he did so. So mean, but it worked. In my defense I am a better cook that this Marie lady so his leftovers weren't so horrifying.

C2Iowa said...

You eat that and are still fast? I better rethink my plan.

Allie @ The Constant Pursuit said...

Oh wow... seeing the photo of that meal makes me want to die inside just a little bit...

Jen said...

Delicious! Wow- I think even "the starving kids in Africa" would say, no thanks, Marie.

Molly said...

that. is. nasty.

Heather said...

That tv dinner looks nothing like the picture on the box, but then they never do...that one looks especially yucky. did you eat it?

Chad said...

TWSP!
That's what she pooped!

Alma said...

Gross! Try Amy's brand frozen meals (we get them at Costco), they are good. Also, Kashi brand is decent.

Runners Fuel said...

I've never had anything else from marie Callender besides the pot pies. That looks gross!

funderson said...

Yeah, that first picture looks like poop...

Jess said...

Frozen meals can definitley be disgusting. I had a chicken-something meal about a week ago that resembled cat-vomit. But, sometimes, busy parents have little else to select.

Dash said...

Can I be a total weirdo and tell you that my quick healthy meals are those little minute rice ready made bowls that after I heat up, I take a bunch of healthy select rotisserie chicken deli meat and cut it up and stick it in with the rice, it takes about 1 minute to make and it's healthy, carbs, low-fat, protein meal perfect for a runner. YUMMY. Told you, I'm a weirdo. :) On the other hand, there seems to be an excess of pooping and not showering going around blog-town these days! ;)

Rose said...

I poop way faster than most people I guess. I would not have time to send an email from the shitter.

Nicole said...

That meal looks disgusting and fear of that is why I stay away from all pre-made frozen food. Lately I've been eating protein bars for lunch, which probably still aren't the healthiest thing.
I like to multi-task and I'm good at it! Especially at work, I like to get paid for that mess.

GeorgiaSnail said...

Looks to me like you accidentally grabbed the baby's lunch on the way out the door...

Jen said...

I think you could sue for misrepresentation in a photo and win enough money to buy lunches for a lifetime. YUCK! You should have just stuck with Marie Calendar's 1800 calorie turkey pot pie.

The Sean said...

Lean Cuisine, Adam. Or cans of veggies or beans.

jess said...

Oh my gosh that Marie Callender's dish is awful, it should not even be a meal! Speaking of poop, it looks like poop.

I love that second picture of the poop email, it is hilarious! People need to be more honest about where they are sending their emails :)

Poop talk is a-okay, it is awesome to see people's true sense of humor!

Nitmos said...

So....your expectations were met?

Shawn said...

You could eat that with a straw...gross man

Al's CL Reviews said...

So so glad I'm allergic to turkey! That looks disgusting!

RunnuRMark said...

Just needs a little stir. And a topping of good food.

Christina said...

uck! When the company doesn't pay for meals because your traveling, the menu changes a lot.

Running Through Phoenix said...

I just vomited a little in my mouth.

Chris K said...

I always bring a healthy Desperate Housewives 4-course lunch to work. Um, Adam, you do know that nutrition is a piece of the puzzle, right?

Jamie said...

Everyone has texted on the pooper once in their life.

Pam said...

Ewwwwww... that is disgusting! The food, not the texting on the pooper.

Guilty as charged.

SupermomE12 said...

Not good when the picture of your dinner is countless times more disgusting than the poop joke. :)

we say pooing not pooping downunder

Her Name Is Rio said...

Oh man. Just to think about where some mobile devices have been!

Jamie said...

Hey Adam. My name is Jamie and I work for ConAgra Foods- we make Marie Callender's frozen meals. I would love to get some more information from the packaging so that we can alert our Quality Team. We always want you to have a positive experience and I'm sorry this meal doesn't appear to have met your expectations or ours! You can email me at wecare@conagrafoods.com. Thanks! P.S. Your blog seems anything but boring to me. :)

Hi Adam,
Just recently found your blog and it looks like a riot of a blog (in a good way) so you'll have a new follower in a minute.
And, yes, as others have implied, seems like you got your "poop humor" in with that first picture. What's even funnier is that someone from MC "scoped" this out! (comment before me)
Run well, Ann

gene @boutdrz said...

WOW! comment from the source...i hope that something good comes of it. usually when i complain (last night at Chili's!) all i get is coupons or gift cards to use for their product. ummm....SORRY, but that just doesn't cut it. as if to say, "sorry you were massively dissatisfied, here's another chance to be upset, this time, it's on us."
good luck....

Steph said...

Okay, so it's so awesome that Jamie commented above - sweet! I love good customer service. I also love you, Adam. Will you marry me? ;)

Angie Bee said...

Looks like you could get some free food out of this post..... :)

ShutUpandRun said...

Wow Jamie's really getting on your good side. Maybe you'll get a lifetime supply of that slop.

Kate said...

Way to go, Con-Agra. Nice to see a customer service response.

P.S. If you're still missing snow, YOU will hate ME for my most recent blog post. :)

Andrew Opala said...

If you read the box closely it says, some assembly required.

* piss *

Chanda M. DeFoor said...

That is a lot of beige food.

Laura said...

Ready for TMI? I sometimes bring my laptop right into the bathroom. I HATE typing on the little touch pad on my phone, so it's much more effective :)
