The link to the original article is below, but I had to post this news item about a woman in California suing Jelly belly because she had bought a package of Jelly Belly Sport jelly beans and the product did NOT state that there was sugar in the product.
Evaporated Cane juice, yes, but sugar no.
Apparently, the marketing team at Jelly Belly really confused her by using “fancy words” to mislead her into thinking that she was eating a sugar-free product.
She was so mad / embarrassed / that she decided to sue, and is bringing a class action suit against the makers of Jelly Belly just in case anyone else was duped too…
If you’ve been paying attention to the news recently you would have heard about the dangers of putting your cell phone up to your ear, in your pocket or in your bra.
In Canada, the amount of radiation is significant that the Canadian government believes there should be a warning on the packages of cell phone to warn Canadians, well, not to use them as phones…

It’s been a while since I’ve had the pleasure to compile such a list, but here are the 13 Things you WILL be talking about today (and tomorrow, etc)
- You know you’re a Dad when… Breakfast on my way to a meeting this morning was: a handful of stale pretzels, a handful of peanuts, a Clementine orange and a container of 1-day-old cucumber slices.
Not busy enough on Twitter, US President Donald Trump is stirring up the debate on abortion with his fellow males. Donald, in less that 140 characters, I want to tell you this, “Stay out of my uterus!”
Scientists – and I love me some science – are going to make tomatoes taste delicious again! YAY. For those of you who have been reading The Urban Daddy for a long-time, you will remember that I love gardening and my favourite thing to grow… Tomatoes! http://www.cbc.ca/news/technology/scientists-make-tomatoes-great-again-1.3953185
The “Doomsday clock” has moved to 11:58pm for the first time since like 1954. This means nothing to me, to be honest, and I didn’t even like the cartoon Doonsbury, so there!
5. GM is cutting 800 Canadian jobs and moving them to Mexico… Damn. I hope Trump doesn’t hear that. In retaliation, Canada has agreed to build a wall between Canada and Mexico. Damn you capitalism!!!
6. I don’t know where you live, but here in Toronto where we need road tolls to keep the 905’ers out (see wall building), we have pot holes the size of, well, Mexico. One such pot hole cost my wife her front tire and rim. Damn you Mexico!
- Mary Tyler Moore passed away, and after being reacquainted with her show recently I came to realize that her TV feminism was inspiring and much needed. She will be missed.
The Toronto Maple Leafs do not stink… Am I dead???
9. I read somewhere that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s mother had met the Donald (see President Trump earlier) back in the 70’s. I thought the writer was trying to convince us that Donald Trump was his father, and when I told this to someone, they said, “Trump? No. Castro, yes! They even look alike!!” What?!?
New expression in The Urban Daddy dictionary; “Playing your trump card” Means saying whatever it takes to get what you want. Truth, lies, half-truths… whatever!
Trumpanomics. Putting America first. Hopefully Canada second. Could change direction at a moments Tweet and may or may not be accurate or true… Nobody knows…
2 hours before turning over reigns of the US to Trump, Former President Obama sent $221 million dollars to the Palestinian authority. It would be a shame if that money was not used to build infrastructure and was used by the “leadership” to acquire weapons, build tunnels or for their pockets. If you want your own state, start acting like responsible leaders and put your people first! As for Obama… Not cool!
One week of President Trump and here is what we know: Torture good, Mexico bad. Jobs good, jobs from tourists in Islamic countries bad. Woman bad. Free Trade bad. The Apprentice good. Climate change – fake. Vaccinations – fake.
(It’s my Trump calculations…) Tim Horton’s is opening up in… Gulp… Mexico. Don’t tell Trump. He’ll kick the coffee company out of the US. Or, those in the southern US will need a really long straw to sip those yummy Timmy’s beverages.
A former federal public servant who stole nearly $1 million in computer parts from the Department of National Defence and sold some of them on the classified website Kijiji has pleaded guilty to fraud and breach of trust. Andrew Heggaton, 33, was a civilian member of the Canadian Forces Crypto Support Unit when he ordered…
via ‘Things just spiralled out of control’: Public servant steals nearly $1 million in computer parts, sells them on Kijiji — National Post – Top Stories
First off… The government is not exactly known for having state of the art technology unless DND has a special budget for tech-toys… So who would want to buy old computer parts, let alone $1-millions dollars worth of stuff. This is not a spiralling out of control, it’s a long-term, well thought out theft and fraud.
And how come I can’t sell old snow pants or cloth diaper wraps on Kijiji but this guy makes a million dollars stealing his employers property?!?
And furthermore… Didn’t the DND ever figure out that they were missing all that stuff? Don’t they have an IT department??
Could a Cure for Peanut Allergies Be Close? Peanut Protein to the Rescue!
I heard yesterday morning that they was a study conducted in England whereby children were given a peanut protein over a period of time and in doing so, 81% of them were able to eat 5 peanuts without reaction. That would be huge!
Fingers crossed it leads to something bigger and better.
