Today, I was invited over by my girlfriend's parents, but I couldn't bring myself to take part in their discussions. During a lull in conversation, I noticed everyone was staring at me. Covering myself while I tried to think of something to say, I grabbed an apple and took a bite. It was plastic. FML

Plastic fruit taste better

Well there's your conversation starter right there!


Plastic fruit taste better

I prefer steel...

Haha meeting with the parents is the worst if they don't like you at first sight!

So how'd it taste?

That's quite some social skills you got there, OP.

In some instances, that's practically true. Most of the fruit here in the US is selectively bred to produce the largest size, largest amount, most resistant, most visually attractive, and thus most profitable crop. Little attention is paid in regards to taste, texture, or nutrition. If you're looking to save a couple of bucks, plastic fruit is your solution. It lasts forever, tastes comparable to a lot of supermarket fruit, and doesn't digest, so you can keep eating it, and re-eating it for as long as you like!

thankyou- I have learnt more on fml than I did at school today

It tastes real good with a Brillo pad IMO Mmmmm.... Brillo pads and fake pears. So good :)__

31 clearly doesn't have a Wegmans or a whole foods nearby :(

38, Never use FML as a basis for education. Ever.

Aren't you supposed to chew it over with Twix or something?

Mmm, Granny Smith Plastic.

66- In France: Need a moment? Chew it over with a plastic apple.

31 - Farmer's markets ftw. I get fruit that tastes like real food :D

My cooking tastes like plastic too

Thats the part where you laugh about it and try to make a conversation.

60, I do have a Whole Foods around, as well as Farmer's Markets. My comment was about the majority of produce here, which is not organic or heirloom variety.

77, Be aware that farmers markets are fresher but have no guarantee as to quality. They could have used any number of chemicals on the food that you aren't aware of. Theres no way to know for sure, so the best thing to do is to just ask them what their practices are, then use your judgement as to whether or not they sound credible.

106, cause everyone tells the truth about their food practices huh?

Did you just stop reading there and not follow on from the comma? Do you suffer from some fear of commas? Are you stupid? Is it all of the above?

66, I was waiting for someone else to be reminded of a twix commercial.

I learnt more on FML than I did in school in 5 years

120, Congratulations, you're officially an idiot.

106 - So you trust the supermarkets in their practices? You're better off with a farmers market in most cases, because most supermarkets do use pesticides, herbicides, and all the other chemicals. Its funny how organic food has labels stating it's organic, while food that has been treated with chemicals is considered normal and requires no special label.

131, Organic doesn't necessarily mean healthy. It gets labelled as such because there are no requirements to meet to be considered "organic". Those in the supermarket are not the healthiest option, but you know that they have been sourced from producers with strict guidelines that have been met. That said, I shop in the farmers markets and never said a single thing about supermarkets. I don't see why you're making the sarcastic comments when I'm pointing out something that is in fact true and should be upheld by everyone who shops in these places. Neither option is inherently healthy, as both stem from the obvious truth that the producers are running a business. Sadly it seems you've fallen victim to the "its organic so it must be healthy" scam. Sucks for you.

Well there's your conversation starter right there!

It was a great ice breaker!

I prefer beef to plastic.

"Tastes like plastic, it's fantastic!!"

Pretend you did it on purpose for a laugh

A little late for that, buddy.

Not really - I say there's always time to save the situation if you're skilled enough. If not, you might just end up digging yourself further into the hole. However, that might quite possibly result in utter hilarity, and save the situation anyway.

AlphaPrice 7

You shoulda offered them some

And then they are angry at you for eating their decorations.

But decor is tasty.

I'm sure they would have just found it funny and won't think much worse of you. Although you may be the subject of a few jokes when you visit again

Or they might figure out you're mildly retarded, cancel the wedding, and leave you no choice but to move back to England and run your Wee Britain empire from there. It happens.

35- you know he's from France right?

35- you know he's from France right?

He's just really shy. I'm sure everyone realized that.

I guess there's not many Arrested Development fans around here. Too bad.

24: You must tell us!!!

I just laughed because he tried to make a rebuttal and they moderated his comment, so you can see he wasn't too nice in it.

Only true men eat plastic.

You all would down vote me. :(

Yes. Yes we would. I am glad you observed that.
