Hmm, have these two jugs of Miracle Whip expired? Hmm. Why do these things always say ``best if bought by'' rather than ``don't dare eat this after''? Hmm. September and January, respectively. September 1993 and January 1994, that is. Plonk, plonk.

I have, like, a gallon of barbecue sauce. Where the fuck did that come from? I have never in my life cooked anything that required barbecue sauce. Plonk.

Hmm, does salsa go bad? Wait. Is that mold in there, or are those just particularly chunky-looking bits of onion? No, I don't want to know. Plonk.

What about this unopened bottle of tomato sauce, these three unopened bottles of jelly? If the Freshness Seal hasn't popped up it's still ok, right? Right? Hmm. Plonk plonk plonk plonk.

What's this green brain-shaped thing clinging to the underside of the lower shelf? Scrape scrape scrape. Eeew. Plonk.
