HB Seal of Approval

Power to the BAKERY !

Though I am not a top baker, I would certainly be more apt to use products with a HB Seal of Approval. The seal could be a little golden croissant with UnaBubba's signature on it or something, and it could be on any number of products (like Underwriters Lab or the Good Housekeeping Seal).

The product selection/approval process would include free trial product to the top 25 bakers for evaluation. Inventive or Humorous products would get extra consideration.

Sort of like the FDA, but much more serious.

       8 out of 7 bakers agree, duck tape is very useful.   

       Seems like it would take away from the main focus of this place. But if they're willing to send me free stuff, I'm in.

       To be appropriate, wouldn't such a seal only be applied to wacky, half-baked products that didn't really work?

       Like day-young bread?

       I can imagine the majority of building materials and smashy-poundy-hitty things would automatically get the seal.

       I'm not sure why I'd want to buy anything with UnaBubba's signature on it. Of course, it's possible that he wouldn't want to buy things with his signature on them either.

       With product placement ads in the Journal of Irreproducible Results?

       I don't get what the halfbakery has to do with "approving" products.

       Nothing, I'm pretty sure.

       Products? Are there products then?
unclepete, Mar 12 2004
  

       Yeah, didn't you know? <munching on Grilly Willy Stress Sausage>

       Does it balance a big beach ball on the end of its nose?
PeterSilly, Mar 12 2004
  

       Or clap it's flippers together and say "ark ark" to show approval?
squeak, Mar 12 2004
  

       Now, [Rods], that's just quackers.

       //Sort of like the FDA.//

Actually, this would be more like Underwriters Laborites (UL), except that only those products that went through the extensive HB testing regimen, and failed miserably, could be certified as “halfbaked”.

       "Unsuitable for uses public or private"

       "Guaranteed to explode and/or contain custard - every time!" Funny idea, but I'm with [waugs], I'm afraid.

       Brave of you to admit that, ichthyrodentus.
waugsqueke, Mar 13 2004
  

       I'm with waugs, but I'm afraid to admit it.
FarmerJohn, Mar 13 2004
  

       I used to be with [waugs] but the therapy helped a lot and I think I'm better now, thanks.
PeterSilly, Mar 13 2004
  

       BTW .. may I suggest that the first item to receive the HB SEAL OF APPROVAL be the mirrored washroom (lu?) outside the art museum. I have to hand it to the brits - AWESOME !!

       mahatma, where do you mean?
