Red wigglers

In addition to being the greatest newspaper in the world, The New York Times is also full of shit.  Exhibit A being their recent article for a $399 electric food composter.  $399!  What's wrong with you people?  By "you people" I refer to both the Times editors who thought this story was a good idea and the legion of idiots who might actually buy one.  Read it here

In the Times' defense, the final line of the article reads "For that amount, you could buy at least 14,000 red worms on Amazon."  So they do have a sense of humor about the whole thing.  

Me?  I don't need that many.  But I might spring for 250 of Uncle Jim's red wigglers.

$11.99 plus shipping.  Buy them here.  The good news is that Amazon is ready to ship immediately, as opposed to, say, any book published by Hachette.  If this sentence is meaningless to you, read this quick bit about Amazon's scorched earth policy for a publisher that doesn't toe the line.

You could also buy about two pounds of really good weed, sit in your living room, listen to Benny Goodman, fuck the garden and just compost yourself.
Nicely said.
No worms required.
