Another work week has come and gone (almost...just seven more hours, but who's counting?) and I am looking forward to a weekend full of graduation parties.
This week, Food Manufacturing reported on the USDA's vaccine for the bird flu (that isn't working), the Kraft and Mondelez companies seeking dismissal of price manipulation charges and why you shouldn't drink coffee in the morning.
Industry news like the aforementioned is of course important, but sometimes we just need a bit of light-hearted fun in our lives. And what better day than a Friday to slack off — errr, I mean, take a little break.
As food lovers, I'd like to believe we are all a little partial to jokes surrounding food. Yeah, some are pretty corny, but that's the fun of it!
So in the second week of our Friday Food Funnies series (view last week's here), let's have a laugh or two. Or if nothing else, at least something to lighten your work load as you prepare for the (hopefully) relaxing weekend ahead.
Cheers and Happy Friday to all!

Has anyone ever thought that perhaps soy milk is just normal milk introducing itself in Spanish?
With today's ever growing population of health-conscious consumers, food companies are reformulating their products in order for them to better appeal to customers.
Much of today's food is just "bad" — according to public health groups — but there is one food in particular that will ruin you for a lifetime:
A doctor tells a group of patients, "The material we put into our stomachs is terrible. Red meat is awful. Soft drinks corrode your stomach lining. Chinese food is loaded with MSG. High-fat diets can be disastrous, and none of us realizes the long-term harm caused by the germs in our drinking water. But there is one thing that is the most dangerous of all. Can anyone here tell me what food it is that causes the most grief and suffering for years after eating it?" An old man raises his hand and says, "Wedding cake."
