The first single will be a song about a woman who slowly tries to kill her husband with microwave popcorn.

Any food that is burnt contains Nitrosammines and can cause cancer. They occur naturally in lots of food and like everything are not cancerous in low levels. Over cooked meats are a concern as they contain increased levels as the compounds are derived from heated proteins.

There is a chemical in microwave popcorn butter that is a proven carcinogen also. I believe there are some lawsuits from people working in the microwave corn factories. Like asbestos though it is a high level carcinogen so the threat to the consumer is very minimal.

That's it. I'm quitting. No one will ever say anything more funny than this, so there's really no point in sticking around.

Toodles people.

No, but too much Nutrasweet can cause artificial diabetes.

I'm not sure this is all true, but there might be a kernel of truth in there.

I heard margarine is just as bad as butter for you, but only if you have an artificial heart.

Don't worry about it.
1. Obama will be sure to destroy the planet and kill us all before whatever cancer you may contract can, and/or
2. Jesus will call you home when he's ready, regardless of what you do.

tip for those who don't give a fuck either way:

1) nuke regular micro popcorn
2) put in medium size paper bag
3) take cheese packet from supermarket mac-n-cheese box, dump in
4) shake the shit out of it
5) enjoy hot cheezy popcorn & have plenty o' napkins on hand

trust me
