ok but I just really love the names they give them
"The Ridiculous Potato"
"The Unfortunate Clementine"
I’m giggling it’s like a team of ragtag misfit superheroes
I love the sometimes absolutely ugly but completely tasty produce that comes out of my garden.
so grateful for businesses like this
Actually a wonderful idea! I don’t care how my fruits and veggies look when buying them — I only care about the price and the ripeness.
I love the fact that they put the blame on consumers though, as if they demanded at some point that they wouldn’t buy ‘imperfect’ produce so ALL THAT PRODUCE WENT TO WASTE. When in fact it was 100% the fault of the supermarkets who refused to buy it, because they wanted their produce to be ‘perfect’ so they could sell it for more.
Like, it’s almost funny that they make it look like they had to convince consumers to change their minds as though they’d made a conscious decision earlier to not buy those same things. Like. They never bought them because they literally weren’t available, because they didn’t even make it to the supermarkets.
So they act like it’s them doing something clever and revolutionary by tricking people into buying ‘imperfect’ produce when they were the ones who told everyone that it was imperfect and didn’t allow them to buy it in the first place. And by doing so, they’re making more money and claiming moral high ground for fixing a problem that they created in the first place.
It’s like digging a hole in the sidewalk for absolutely no reason and forcing people to walk around it, until they get so used to it that they cross the street automatically, then filling in the hole and expecting people to thank you for making their lives easier.
A strong woman is not threatened. It’s okay to be sweet. It’s okay to be feminine. It’s okay to be vulnerable and generous. It’s not a sign of weakness to need. It’s okay to be supportive of your guy. It’s not about control.
I think the “women are mysterious” thing can also come from:
1) Women actually being quite clear, but not telling men what they want to hear. ”She said she doesn’t want to talk to me? So many mixed messages and confusing signals!”
2) Women not having cheat codes. ”I tried being nice, and she didn’t have sex with me. I tried being an asshole, and she didn’t have sex with me. Come on, there’s got to be some kind of solution to this puzzle!”
3) Women not being a hive mind. ”First a woman told me that she likes guys with big muscles. Then the very next day a woman told me she thinks muscles aren’t attractive at all. Make up your mind, women!”
4) An individual woman doing something confusing, and instead of asking “why is she doing this now?” men ask “why do women always do this?”
