Since We Haven't Pounded Nestle In a Few Days

Posted by Tom Chandler 8/19/2008

Because I've been eking out my humble living selling vowels and consonants, I haven't finished any of the half-dozen longer articles in the works for the Trout Underground.

Nor have I pounded the Underground's favorite whipping boy good corporate neighbor Nestle lately, but - via This is Fly - I found the perfect means for doing so while still providing a high quality, marketing-related entertainment experience for the Undergrounders:



See you drinking "Mitch," Tom Chandler.

Tom Chandler

As the author of the decade leading fly fishing blog Trout Underground, Tom believes that fishing is not about measuring the experience but instead of about having fun. As a staunch environmentalist, he brings to the Yobi Community thought leadership on environmental and access issues facing us today.

FINALLY! Those interested in cracking the whip on Nestle keeping track of Nestle for real should visit my just-launched StopNestleWaters.org Web site. It's focused entirely on Nestle-related issues, and because it's not a fly fishing blog (like the Trout Underground), there's lots, lots more to talk about. The Trout Underground will continue taking note of Nestle's activities, but most of the action ... more will be taking place on StopNestleWaters.org. See you there!

I was interviewing 3 summer interns for a Chemical Engineering position four weeks ago. My favorite question is “Have you read the MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheets) for di-hydrogen oxide? You know it kills more people than any other chemical known to man!” Only one got the question right, I hired her. Maybe we should ask Nestile for the MSDS on their chemical. If it is ultra pure, it is truly ... more dangerous. www.uncyclopedia.org/wiki/Dihydrogen_monoxide Let's put a warning label on that stuff!

Frighten you, Tom? You should be dry-rot spitless by now! Oh, and did I mention: Today's Alexa Stats Update: TU 506,252 CU 445,918 You shouldn't bait us Mitch types too hard...

I knew there would be trouble with the "Mitch" water reference. Once again, my readers frighten me.

Okay, that was a truly weird experience. I mean, I agree with the fresh and fit part. And of course, a cooler head is hard to be found in a crisis. And clear thinking? They don't call me the "blank book" for nothing! About the slogan, though; that's old news. PJ already has that down. However, they forgot the rest of it: "... and slap him around." Which she's liable to do most any time now. I refuse ... more to cross the line into "teat" territory, though. A little innocent thumb-sucking never hurt anybody, but that other kind; take it from a pro, that could be excruciating... CD (aka Mitch)
