DUmmie FUnnies 08-08-11 (DUmmie Snoutport Too DUmb to Use Coupons)
DUmmie FUnnies ^ | August 8, 2011 | DUmmie Snoutport, DUmmies, and PJ-Comix

Posted on 08/08/2011 5:03:40 PM PDT by PJ-Comix

Pity poor DUmmie Snoutport. A schoolteacher yet too DUmb to figure out how to use coupons or get good deals as you can see in his/her/its THREAD, "$4.08 for an 11 oz box of 'Nilla Wafers at the store today. What? Really? How?" To get an idea of what a dark (but HILARIOUS) mental place DUmmie Snoutport is coming from, take a look at his/her/its POST on another THREAD. I warn you to put down your coffee cup while reading it or you will risk ruining your monitor. So let us watch DUmmie Snoutport who is also a teacher lapse into utter helplessness in the face of 'Nilla Wafers prices in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, who picked up a 20 lb bag of rice for FREE today via coupons, is in the [brackets]:

$4.08 for an 11 oz box of 'Nilla Wafers at the store today. What? Really? How?

[Bush's fault!!!]

I am having some major sticker shock today. Mind you I go to the CHEAPEST grocery store in town. No fancy nothing. This place is cement, metal racks and you bag your own everything.

[Apparently also FREEZE your own brain.]

Dog food was up a buck, bread prices went up and I don't think I've ever seen summer fruit so expensive in my entire life.

[And of course, you just meekly accepted it and paid the price.]

But the kicker was the 'Nilla Wafers by Nabisco. The box is different than I am used to so I double checked it. 11 oz... $4.08. Sigh...another old favorite that are not within my budget.

[Hey DUmmie Snoutport! Did you even bother to check for alternatives on the Web? Guess what? It took your humble correspondent all of about 10 seconds to find out that you could get those Nilla Wafers at CVS for only $2.50 as you can see HERE. However even that price is too much for me. If I wanted Nilla Wafers I would wait until they are on sale BOGO and then use coupons on each of the items. Good chance I could get them FREE since I do this type of deal all the time.]

How long are prices going to go up? I'm a repetative shopper--I kinda get the same things over and over--and for years I'd spend right around $100. Today's shopping was $147--of which only $7 was meat.

[Only $7 was meat and the rest was crap. BTW, I spent exactly $0.00 on a whole bunch of steaks this past weekend using coupons. I bet anything I could have gotten that $147 price tag down to under 10 bucks.]

Why are the food corporations pushing the American public so hard? How long until people start to protest because they are hungry? Why are they choosing to make so much unrest? It can't all be greed can it?

[It's stupidity but all on your part DUmmie Snoutport. And now to the rest of the DUmmies...]

Part of it is fuel prices. Fuel goes up, and so does everything transported by fuel.

[Thank you, Baroke, for allowing corn to be used as fuel instead as food.]

One suggestion I can make is to look down the liquor & beer aisle for rebate coupons that you mail in, some states do not require an alcohol purchase and it's pretty easy to get the rebate requirements with just your weekly shopping. Beyond that just watch the sales, use coupons and just buy what you need.

[Aren't you worried DUmmie Snoutport would find the use of coupons to be too strenuous?]

Well see they have a lot of execs who need to make hundres of millions of dollars each year so.

[Class warfare is the reason why DUmmie Snoutport has to pay $4.08 for a box of 'Nilla Wafers. Where's Lenin when we really need him?]

Really, I do wonder how much it will take before people will get in the streets.

[A price rise to $4.09 on a box of 'Nilla Wafers is enough to get the people in the streets and bring about Bolshevik Revolution.]

If we go to the streets their next step will be claiming civil disobedience, taking lots of surveillance pictures and rounding up those they deem a threat to the status quo. That might sound outrageous, but that's how bad I think it's gotten in the US. The gears are turning to fully suppress the common folk in the US IMO into serfdom. That said, I think we are on the edge ... there's a line being crossed and I don't think compromise is on the minds of the common folk in the US.

[And line being crossed is when the price of 'Nilla Wafers goes from $4.08 to $4.09 per box. That is precisely what caused the French peasants to storm the Bastille.]

Just finished a box of low fat Nilla wafers--$4.39 / 11 oz. Purchased at a Meijer store in the past week or two.

[And you're DUmb enough to publicly admit to paying that?]

I have to shop tomorrow. I dread it. I'm now going to the store

once every 2 weeks or longer. Everything I buy is calculated for meals. No junk any more. Last time I went shopping, I came home angry, cursing the powers that be. This time I bet I'll be even madder...maybe even cry a little. I'm not in a good place right now but there are folks worse off than I. They have my best thoughts. Where will we go from here? It stinks folks!

[Sayeth the clueless DUmmie too DUmb to use coupons.]

I allow myself a small package of good coffee every other month.

[Did I mention that I got 3 vacuum packs of coffee in the past couple of days for $0.00 via coupons?]

Advance planning, and some serious coupon organization, and I'm actually spending substantially less now than I did five years ago.

[Send this DUmmie a coupon for a FREE Kewpie Doll!]

Our paper is so right that I can't buy it anymore...no coupons for me

[And, of course, DUmmie Snoutport is too DUmb to figure out that you can download electronic coupons right to your cellphone. Or just print them off the Web.]

veggie burgers up to $7.00/box from $5.17 in ONE week...that was my latest sticker shock. That's for FOUR damn soy burgers. SOY!

[SNIFF! No Soy burgers for me. I guess I'll be stuck eating 100% FREE beef burgers as as a substitute.]

Honey Nut Cheerios are a staple for us and going up like crazy!!

[Another item your humble correspondent gets for FREE via using just a little coupon research.]

The Fascists won...haven't you been watching?

[Today 'Nilla wafers. Tomorrow...THE WORLD!!!]

I paid almost $12.00 for 3-1/2 lbs of grapes. $7.50 for 4 avocados

[Meanwhile I paid $2 for 4 avocados on Friday. I was off my stride since I didn't use coupons on them.]

$8.50 for a qt of blueberries

[There's one born every minute in DUmmieland.]

I have a bright spot. Last week I saw a 1.75 L bottle of whiskey on sale for 18.99 and stocked up.

[When Ol' Rotgut is on sale, then stockpile it!]


TOPICS: Humor
KEYWORDS: coupons; dummies
Just some of the things I got for FREE via coupons the past three days:

2 gal. Arizona Tea
3 vacuum packs coffee.
Bunch of steaks
Canola oil
50 oz laundry detergent
2 large bottles Ajax
20 lb bag of rice
etc., etc.

These people never heard that government printing up dollars from thin air causes inflation? Maybe they would be in favor of spending cuts... oh wait, can’t have that.

So, I am running early, had some coffee, read some news, I'm going to meet with my supervisor before I go to the interview to give her a heads up. She's a great co-worker and deserves that respect.

So, I'm about to head out the door and I looked in the mirror for a fashion check. OOPS. I'm so worked up and nervous that while I was shaving (in the shower) I thought, "I should shave my neck" so did that too. WELL... seems I never went back to shaving my face.

I was standing next to the front door, looked in the mirror and realized I had not shaved the left side of my face. Seriously. I ALMOST walked out the door with a half-shaved face.

Ai yi yi..... that was close.

The good side is, when I went to get my shirt, my nice hubby had already ironed it for me. :0)

Wait......What?????

Well, at least you warned us.

Interesting comment from a DUmmie:

That might sound outrageous, but that's how bad I think it's gotten in the US. The gears are turning to fully suppress the common folk in the US IMO into serfdom. That said, I think we are on the edge ... there's a line being crossed and I don't think compromise is on the minds of the common folk in the US.

I am surprised to find that libs feel this way (some libs, anyway). I kinda' thought they wanted all this surveillance, to keep in line those that disagree with them.

How much of the price is hidden taxes?

The corporate tax rate is how much? That has got to be factored into the cost.

You need the RonCo Coupon-O-Matic 5550. It automatically cuts and sorts coupons. Also, it makes some mean Julienne fries.

Maybe the DUmmies can at least have a spontaneous demonstration thanking Obama for raising the weekly chocolate ration to 20 grams.

Also, DUmmies, here's a clue to why your precious Vanilla Wafers are rising in price: No Chance of Default, US Can Print Money: Greenspan

Where the heck are some of these people shopping?? See, if they didn’t hate Walmart so much, maybe they could afford their groceries. $2.98 for Nilla Wafers there, and I’m sure the Great Value ones are way cheaper. I absolutely love Mallomars, but I’m not paying $3 to $4 a box. The great value ones are better, IMO, and only like $2. They are so stupid.

DUmmies are obsessed with (talking about) rioting. Similar comments appear often on DU threads.

“How long are prices going to go up?”

As long as you want to increase taxes on those evil corporations, therefore driving their costs up. Plus as long as you want to increase taxes on the oil companies that make the fuel to deliver the groceries to your neighborhood.....

Idiot complainers.

This was hilarious!

I’m surprised this DUmmie didn’t even consider store brands/off brands of the wafers or cereal...esp. since he/she is presumably against the “big, evil corporations”? And RE: expensive produce—at this time of year there is plenty of selection at all different prices.

I’m not a super-couponer by any means, but with very little effort at all, buying stuff on sale and using both coupons from the paper and that I printed from the Internet, saved $40+ and spent about the same at Walgreens...and stocked up on enough razors and “girl” supplies to last 6 months to a year.

Where do you find coupons for meat and produce? Thankfully I don’t have to buy much meat (my husband raises cattle) but would be nice to have the coupons for produce.

Also had to LOL at the fact that “real” meat would cost a lot less than soy-burgers...and provide a lot more nutrition as well.

Thanks for the laughs!

Psst! Check out the concept of mm. Even on "Extreme Couponing" they touched on that but didn't linger long.
