Friday Happy Hour: What Condiment Should Never Go On A Sandwich?

Erin McCarthy

On Fridays, Jason posts a series of unrelated questions meant to spark conversation in the comments. Jason’s out today, so I’m filling in! Answer one, answer all, respond to someone else’s reply, whatever you want. On to this week’s topics of discussion…

1. Did you hear? GAK—that super squishy substance sold by Nickelodeon in the 90s—is back! (So is Floam.) Urban Outfitters is also selling a line of limited edition Lisa Frank folders, notebooks, and erasers. What nostalgic item from your childhood do you wish would come back so you could play with it again?

(I bought some GAK, and I’m sad to say it doesn’t seem to have the same consistency as it did when I was a kid—I couldn’t stretch it at all without it breaking! The noises aren’t as fun, either.)

2. This week, a worker at Subway got into a confrontation with a customer who asked for ketchup on his cheesesteak. Getting into a fight over it is a little extreme, but it did make me wonder: What condiment should never, ever go on a sandwich?

3. What's the most interesting resolution you made? Any bold ones this year?

4. Your turn! If you’ve got a question for your fellow _flossers, ask away. Have a great weekend!
