Somebody had entirely too much time on his hands.

And not enough knowledge about food. Hardly any of that stuff is right.

Pepper never goes bad. Neither does vinegar.

Or honey.

So I guess this could be called The Periodic Table of the Condiments?

If that somebody has even more free time on their hands they could write a song about them!

The disclaimers are interesting.

Disclaimers

We do not guarantee that any of the above information is in any way accurate. For instance, it was pointed out recently that vegemite is unfit for human consumption upon opening. (We agree - it's vile stuff). However, tests show it is an effective form of reactor shielding. As a note, we did not write the above table. We stole it from some weird day planner we saw somewhere back in 1997. We're not trying to get credit that's not ours. It was more of a tribute. Really.
We are accepting random donations, however. Just in case you were interested.
Update: We just received this information from a random net browser:
It appeared in a mock calendar diary for 1997 and was produced by Potlatch (the paper company) under the title "365 Ben Days." The concept and design was by Dana Arnett, Ken Fox, Fletcher Martin and John Naresky of VSA Partners, Chicago.

I don't know about pepper, but I can tell you that vinegar goes bad. I've had red wine vinegar that eventually oxidized and developed some seriously disgusting sediment in the bottom of the bottle.

IMO the article linked in the OP is a humor piece, not intended to be taken seriously.

Was that sediment or mother? Mother of vinegar - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
