Today's blog post...

...will be even more pointless than usual, as the 19 Minutes staff is on deadline to crank out its monthly magazine column (man, it's rough, running a media empire).

Anyway, I'll leave to you ponder the question that occurred to me on my return commute from the vending machines next door: Why isn't "air" listed among the ingredients on a bag of Funyuns?

And for that matter, how have Funyuns, Hostess Sno Balls, and those bright orange cheese-and-peanut butter crackers endured for lo, these many years when they don't advertise on, they're not associated with a Saturday morning cartoon series (unless you count "Funyun Fu and the Legion of Doom"), and -- as far as I know -- they don't show up on any NASCAR vehicles?

This is especially amazing, considering we live in a landscape that includes something called "Mini Oreos".
