You could be an ex JW……..
Just what were you looking for on the package of processed meat? We didn't have that particular quirk here.
Or not eating a hot dog on the street, might have blood.
GT - back in the late '60s there was a big hoo ha with UK dubbies about blood products in food. Congregation servants were writing to companies asking if there was blood in ice cream (I kid you not), and all kinds of food.
It was mega embarrassing to be a JW ......well, I know it always has been embarrassing...but ya know!
I loooooove black pudding now...muah, ha, haaaa.
@ Oogie...do you really? That's one of the things I won't get over. I smoke, cigars, grass sometimes, etc. but eating that kind of stuff...just can't.
You might be a female ex JW:
if you no longer own a dowdy dress and nylons.
If you no longer decide to buy a purse because it would make a great bookbag.
If you don't own a wooden spoon.
if you no longer suffer with mental problems.
3rd gen - Wooden spoon.....hahahahahahahaha
PunkofNice - "back in the late '60s there was a big hoo ha with UK dubbies about blood products in food."
It their (meager) defense, some brands actually used "meat byproducts" (supposedly including blood) in the manufacture of wieners and other processed meat products.
Canada, too (hence the entry).
Vidiot - That's interesting. Sad about the JW paranoia though. I wonder if they are so worried now?
Not really; they just buy Schneiders.
On a related note; I was really glad when CDs became popular; the hard-core JWs would finally have to shut up about "backmasking" and/or how difficult it was to burn vinyl records they thought might be "satanic".
