Having Fun at Bremerton’s Expense

A copy of this entry appears on the Speaking of South Kitsap blog, hosted by SK reporter Chris Henry.

I was asleep at the switch when Bremerton reporter Steve Gardner posted this entry on the Bremerton Beat. The entry, “That’s Your Business,” makes fun of a store in Port Orchard called “Tobacco Tobacco.” Gardner asks, “Do people in Port Orchard have to be told everything twice?” Never mind that he also gets in a dig at a dog grooming store in Manette called “Doggy Style.” I consider the gauntlet thrown and am responding in kind, albeit belatedly.

Here’s the latest in trendy diets, “Pumpkin Free Shrimp.” In large industrial complexes reminiscent of Upton Sinclair’s “The Jungle,” tiny sea creatures are forced to heft pumpkins to increase their muscle mass for hungry consumers.

One thought on “Having Fun at Bremerton’s Expense

  1. If you live in Bremerton and pay attention to Noah’s Ark sign’s, you would would know the following….

    1. Gyros 3 for $10 dollars
    2. PUMKIN MILK SHAKES
    3. Free SHRIMP with any seafood entree

    #3….they ALWAYS offer free shrimp or clams with every seafood entree.

    it’s not “Pumpkin Free Shrimp”

    NO DUH!! ;o)
