Dehydrated water

It is with a groan and a nod of tired assent that this package of "Dehydrated Water" gets posted. Nonetheless, it's about three levels clear of the cleverness threshold. The dull dollar-store packaging manages to add a perhaps-unintentional note of genuine humor. But $10 for a cellophane bag and some empty plastic bottles? It's not that clever!

    Yeah, for $10 there better be instructions.

    So – it might take awhile -but – I’ll give this comment a shot.

    So – Burning man – yup… got here through a list of searches – virgins – always ask me what they should bring.

    I told them everyone brings too much.
    However – the more seasoned you get the less you bring to the playa.

    all i’m going to bring is dehydrated water – to the desert – for a week…

    I’m sure everything else i need will be there waiting for me…

    like a perfect oasis.

    Actually, the “Do-It-Yourself Water Dehydrator Guide” (which sound a lot like ‘baloney manual for dummies’ to me) is only $1.95.

    For that price you can learn how to make all the dehydrated water you need for free! Cheap!

    If those tubes aren’t easily converted into crack pipes like the roses in glass, someone has lost out on a real opportunity.

    See now, I’ve got an old can of Bernard brand dehydrated water somewhere with a nice cartoon chef on it, and it comes with instructions for making all SORTS of things! For example, to make cold water, just pour into a gallon of cold water, stir to dissolve and serve.

  8. GTMoogle says:

    And Rob misses the cleverness threshold by failing to realize those are NOT empty bottles, they’re empty gel-cap shells, which dissolve in water (And are actually useful if you want to package something (like baking soda, to throw in a bottle of vinegar)).

    pthbbbt :)

    man, I’ve been meaning to make my million off of these since 4th grade. figures the internet would beat me to it.

    Wasn’t this in Space Quest?

    I thought it was Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego?

    SQ had something similar, I think. and HHGTTG had “no tea”.

    reminds me of my sister asking me where the WLAN cable was supposed to go.

    I think they owe Steven Wright royalties on this.
