Get out the marshmallows, it’s time for the Olympics!
Blog Guy, at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, it seems like the Olympic Flame was under-played. You know, they used to carry a torch all the way around the world, and it was a big deal.
I agree with you. This year, some guy just sat there and talked into a phone, and then flames came out of an electric gizmo.
How high up did the flames shoot, anyway?
Maybe a foot, foot and a half. It looked like the Dasani bottled water people sponsored it.
What kind of electrical contraption WAS that?
It might have been a Williams-Sonoma Home Winter Olympics Flame Lighter and Marshmallow Toaster, $299.95. It’ll be in their next catalog.
But if you don’t know for sure that’s what it is, how do you know what it costs?
Call me crazy, but if they want $299.95 for a slow cooker, it just seems logical that’s what they’d charge for this Winter Olympics Flame Lighter and Marshmallow Toaster. Pretty expensive, considering you’d only use it every four years.
True, Blog Guy, but then that’s still more often than you use a slow cooker.
