The hater's guide to the WS catalog was hilarious. But I must confess: I had to get me some of those root-scrubbing gloves!

I got them at Amazon, of course, because I know better than to walk through the doors at WS. But being a person who does not, as a rule, peel - and being quite tired of scrubbing my roots & tubers with a brush - the gloves were a slam-dunk.

I had the same thought, chacha1! I haven't bought them yet, but veggie scrubbing gloves sounded awesome (especially among the boatloads of crap).

Also, I would say that The Worst article was the best article I've read in awhile, but I am not sure how the author would take that. ;)

Didn't have time to read everything this a.m. but got to the WS catalogue review! That was a hoot (as they say here in the south) and the comments are hysterical! I will have to go back and read more after I finish my work day selling stuff nobody actually needs (fur covered hot water bottles).

One should always use rimming sugar when handling Hungarian sacks. It's just plain, old common sense...

I enjoyed both the W-S and "Worst" articles, but I loved the bean recipes. I just love beans!
