David Downing and his wife cooked some sort of PB&J thingy. John asked:

<< Do we discuss this from the perspective of it being you and your wife
who did it, or do we discuss it from the perspective of consumer in general?

David replied:

<< Consumers in general. I maintain that this comes under the heading of a
mistake anybody could make, as opposed to a mistake we made because we
weren't paying attention. But then again, I tend to feel that way about
all my mistakes. <G>

OK, since we're talking about consumers in general, you won't take personal
offense, right? :-)

Consumers in general, unless they're completely new to this culture or
planet, _ought_ to be at least vaguely familiar with PB&J and with
mac'n'cheese. They _ought_ to be aware that one eats mac'n'cheese _hot_ and
PB&J _cold_. So, unless these thingies come frozen, I can't imagine why
someone would nuke (I assume that's what we're talking about) a PB&J thingy.

OTOH, frozen pizza comes with the stern warning, "Do not eat before
cooking!" So, I suppose it's only a matter of time before we see "Do not
cook before eating!"

It occurs to me that if you and your wife can find a willing attorney (which
shouldn't be difficult -- you've undoubtedly suffered a significant
emotional trauma), you could probably hasten that day. ;-)
