Imitation Bacon Bits....I don't even know where they came from!

Imitation and bacon, two words that should NEVER be in the same sentence!

A tupperware container full of tea bags that have to be ancient.

Held onto part of a package of dried lasagna noodles like they were my first concert tshirt and finally just threw 'em away.

Maybe you'll find this bogus - four jars of peanut butter, all opened.
Are they on a pantry shelf, or in the fridge? I ask because I was raised with the Skippy (it was always Skippy, never got to taste any other brand till I moved out...) kept in the fridge. If you wanted to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich you either had to plan 2 hours ahead, or rip your bread to shreds.

As far as the term 'bogus' goes, I hope you don't think I'm adopting a holier than thou attitude at what people have or cook or anything like that. If I offended you or anyone else who posted to this, then I do apologize as that was surely not my intention.

Yes, I used to have the same drawer stuffed full of packets. Had it for years. Then, after the kitchen heating up in the summer, and being chilly in the winter, and heating up again after yet another season I surmised that those packets had to be harbouring poison so I tossed them. The other night I had take out sushi and they didn't supply enough soy sauce. I had no bottle on the shelf and searched in vain for a few of those poisoned packets, hoping one or two had missed the search and seizure of several years ago.

In fact, frankly, in this day & age, food producers aren't allowed to sell anything "bogus". Just semantics, maybe - but perhaps you meant something else?
It wasn't really meant to be dissected by Webster or Miriam or anything like that. Seems most people got the general idea without being insulted or slighted. No big deal if the thought wasn't clear enough for all to get.

Something like "that was bogus, and if we don't get some cool laws soon, then we'll be bogus, too".

Wow. I won't even give my dog immitation bacon.

Oh, and actually the most bogus thing I've decided must be the big plastic carton of cotten candy. Yes, I bought cotten candy from the grocery store.
