Soylent’s is Golden

Like many of my friends, I’ve recently become a big fan of Groupon and all the other group buying sites. See a deal -> press a button on my phone -> take the phone to a restaurant -> half-price dinner -> yay!

I’ve signed up to several sites, and the alerts all seem to hit my inbox at around the same time each day. This morning’s offerings included deals for a local restaurant and DJ school…

…and something a little more unusual.

Om nom nom

Organic is good – no wonder this offer has the EthicalDeal seal of approval – but what I want to know is: is this what the free-range kids movement is really all about?

    “organic children” 😀

    Didn’t know there were that many synthetic ones… apart from the obvious one of course ^^

  3. I dunno, some kids eat an awful lot of nasty processed junk food. I’d rather have the grain-fed ones.

    What’s the “obvious one,” Chall? I thought all kids were organic, too…

    I have an ornery retired surgeon friend who regularly rants about the “organic” label. The funniest of his rants is the one about the “organic sea salt” at Whole Foods.

    I guess Pinocchio can fuck off then?

    Or is a boy made out of tree more ‘organic’ than the rest of us?

  7. Haha, thanks for posting that! It was definitely an oversight on our part and we are very glad that most people can have a sense of humor when small slip-ups happen. And don’t worry, no organic children were sold at 50% off (or at all!)

  8. Cath@VWXYNot? says:

    Kristi, organic salt is wrong on so many levels…

    Antipodean, good question, but possibly moot – he’d be way too chewy.

    Mac, thanks for stopping by! Yes, it gave me a good giggle 🙂
