Dear FBI: Letter No. 6

  1. Fruity, tooty and smoothies. Operation Fruit Cocktail is now officially launched.

    Look out for the syrupy sugary aftertaste.

  2. Smartypants, do YOU think it's right that a canned pear cube should taste like a grape?

  3. The Chicago Infos were not especially affluent. Fruit cocktail with cottage cheese - quite a treat. That can taste added to the exoticism. "Unlike the crappy grapes changing colors in the bottom of the fridge, these never change colors and have the taste of a California can. mmmmmm..."

  4. Probably not but canned ham re: Tim Occhipinti should never taste like sour grapes.

    Yet it does.

  5. Info, the Pincuses were not exactly the 'hoi- polloi' of the Queens, NY social set. Ours was eaten sans cottage cheese.

    Cottage cheese is high in protein and calcium, and low in calories btw. An excellent choice for the Chicago Infos.

  6. The Bossy-Boots of Levittown-Clone were ever about appearances. So a display of mere canned fruit was never acceptable. Elaborate deceptions were essential---essential nutrients be damned! Hence, the attractive Green Mountain Salad, served on limp iceberg lettuce...lime Jello, canned pineapple, cream cheese & miniature marshmallows. Often accompanying Rice-a-Roni with Sea Legs (fake king crab--pollock, molded & red-dyed). Or Chicken Divan...chicken slathered in a sauce of canned condensed cream of chicken soup mixed with mayonaisse, topped with canned slivered almonds (add a side of Betty Crocker Au Gratin Potatoes). Mater Bossy-Boots was the Queen of the Vulgar Recipe! Faux trumped flavor, every time.

  7. Smarty: Tim O. can be seen as a simulated product developed by the well-financed R&D arm of the Hudson Co. machine. Like that staple created by the government in another wartime, SPAM, Mr. O. could aptly be branded, SCAM.
