Acute case of the munchies

Munchies Overheard on the Red Line, from a male high school student:

"Hey Mom, if you go to the Jewels tonight, can you get me some:

  • Starburst
  • Hershey kisses
  • Fruit roll-ups
  • Snickers
  • Sweet Tarts and
  • Doritos

.... Oh, well, I was just feeling kinda hungry...."

No Slim Jims to balance out all those carbs?

Teen-Age MALE I would presume.

the bullet points made it perfect.

Where do I get what he was smoking?

"Oh, and a colon cleanser and some stents. Ok, mom? Can you get that for me? Thanks."

Leve it to America's youth to create a vegetarian diet I could work with.

It is always Jewels never Jewel haha!

Is it Jewels or Jewel's? (Yeah, I know. They don't know the difference, so it doesn't matter.)

The family should save some money, and just buy the kid a funnel, and a 10lb bag of sugar.

Clearly, the student forgot all about the Dorito Late Night Last Call Jalapeno Popper chips. I took a picture in Walgreens when I saw them - I know no one would believe me otherwise! Seriously, how bad of an idea would this appetizer-inspire flavor be at "Late Night & Last Call?"
