Purchase of the day.

From the April 16, 2013 Amazon Associates Report:
Scott's Cakes Boxed Cookies in a White Box
By using the Althouse portal, you can buy things you want, pay nothing extra, and make a contribution to this blog. We notice. We appreciate it. And only if you send us DNA evidence will know it's you.

The Althouse Amazon portal: hand-made, hand-scooped, and holus-bolus baked to perfection.

5 lb box. Someone is having a party or perhaps is re-selling them ... or has a monster craving.

They do look good. Made with almond paste? my favorite.

Why a white box? Racism!!!

As I understand it, the Boston bombing was accomplished with the use of pressure cookers. How many have been sold through this blog?

I thought I would win with my $26, size 11 hiking shoes. How you gonna beat that - 26 bucks for a pair of shoes? I'm amazing. I could reduce the national debt by 110% in 3 months with a government credit card and your Amazon portal.

What's that? You like it better when we spend too much in the portal?

You evil capitalist pigs.

AlanS, LOL x 50!!

bagoh20 said...

Yea, that would be something if the cookers were ordered through the Althouse portal just to blame the hillbilly community. And, what if the purchase won Purchase of the Day?!!

ndspinelli said...

If the FBI ask Meade for a list of all people who purchased pressure cookers he would give you up in a NY minute.

Ann Althouse said...

It's no joke about Amazon and the FBI. If everyone buys from Amazon, Amazon is a useful source of evidence.

Meade said...

Here's the pressure cooker I bought from a department store in Greensboro, NC in 1977. I still have it and it still works great.

bagoh20 said...

". I still have it and it still works great.".........

Well, it did until recently, now I can't find it.

DADvocate said...

You might want to start keeping track of who buys pressure cookers.

AllenS said...

When was the last time you saw Althouse's pressure cooker, Meade? Is she now, or has she ever belonged to the Tea Party?

Third time is the charm.

C Stanley said...

I really did buy a pressure cooker recently from Amazon. I've been wondering if my name is now on an FBI list.

Meade said...

Since we became Amazon Associates, no one has ever purchased a pressure cooker through the Althouse portal.

Allen S: She has never owned a pressure cooker (although she did marry into mine), and she is not now nor has ever been a member of the Tea Party or any other party that I know of.

ndspinelli said...

A Constitutional prof extolling the virtues of law enforcement being able to determine everything a person buys.

Meade said...

To be fair, I'm sure she could also equally reprove the vices of law enforcement being able to determine everything a person buys.

Ann Althouse said...

I didn't marry him for his pressure cooker.

I married him for his toaster.

Someone is going to have lots of fun doing origami. It's one of my favorite things to do with kids.
My favorite quote about origami goes something like "Origami is the art of wasting time while impressing nobody."

It's a telling story when someone buys a book about how to file for bankruptcy, rather than borrowing it from the library.

Did you ever put your buns... oh forget it.
