Yabbut Benedict sauce is so good on stuff like asparagus! They should put it in cans or something! Maybe those little packets where you just add water, maybe. I'm just sayin'.

I have learned the hard way over the years that that's pretty pointless; that ignorance is generally not the reason for such atrocities. But I will occasionally do a Kramer-esque doubletake, shudder and say either, "That stinks!", or more often, "C'maaaaan, that's bush league!" (And yes, I do intend the small "b", past history notwithstanding.)
