Like the NY Times Food Critic, But With Food Stamps!

So, by clicking blogroll links through a few different websites, I came to this blog called The Impulsive Buy where two guys pick up highly processed instant foodstuffs, sugary soft drinks, and various novelty candy/consumables and judge them while they draw parelells to their lovelives, highschool memories, and other (hopefully fabricated?) dark secrets of their past.
Here's a descirption of their blog's focus:

The Impulsive Buy is dedicated to providing quasi-reviews about various consumer goods. Each review goes off on some tangent, but almost always comes back to complete the review. If it didn’t, we wouldn’t be a quasi-review website. Instead we would be some quasi-babbling website.

The Impulsive Buy USUALLY posts five four three two reviews a week. About one in every fifty are actually any good. he staff of The Impulsive Buy are not experts, but they do like to try anything that has any of the following words on the product: new, improved, new and improved, better tasting, reconditioned, less fat, fat-free, best-selling, less calories, reduced for quick sale, limited edition, free toy, 50% off, or now with Olestra.

I read several of their reviews and laughed out loud. I'm not using the intertubes 'LOL' short hand here becuase my laughs requires emphasis. I had to stop reading for a moment because I had tears in my eyes from laughing. Click through and just keep reading. (warning: some of this is a bit lowbrow.)
