Popcorn … Popacorno popacorno, that’s popcorn in Italian (name that amazing t.v show) … hehe ohhh Schmidt, you lovely lovely schmidty-roo!!

You guys need this popcorn, it’s part of a healthy diet and shnidzz … it’s not, but popcorn is a whole grain, so do the dirty work and justify the healthification.

Also, HAPPY ALMOST ST. PATTY’S DAY … are you doing anything special to celebrate? Making stew, eating green stuff, drinking green stuff, running away from any bar because it’s going to be crazier than the new box of marshmallow-only lucky charm cereal?!?

By eating this popcorn, you’re really just doing your part to help society get their irish on … also, it’s the weekend. And booze.
