So, my husband was looking to order some bowls of microwaveable brown rice to keep in his desk at work (along with pouches of tuna, salmon, etc.) for a quick lunch on those days he flakes and forgets to bring lunch. He was going to get the usual brand when he saw a different brand that was substantially cheaper. He sent me to link to them and as I was perusing it, the "Frequently Bought Together" section caught my eye:



Which lead to questions in my mind like "so much fiber you'll crap the bed?" or "rice makes you wet yourself?"

Anyway, have you seen any weird combos like this while you were shopping on Amazon?

I tried "Vaseline Petroleum Jelly" and got matched with "Q-tips Cotton Swabs". Really disappointed...

I can deal with tuna pouches. Its the a-holes who microwave fish that should be flayed alive. Popcorn should also be banned.

Fish, in general, should not be allowed outside of designated fish odor zones.

I'm with you on popcorn, too. The fish and popcorn odors should be contained in the same area so they can have that final battle royale.

Let me clarify. Pouch tuna has an odor that stays in the immediate vicinity and dissipates after awhile. Microwaving fish causes that odor to spread like an infection and just cling to everything. My old job someone would microwave fish daily and the smell would reach my office two halls away. I wish I could go through life not caring that those around me thoughte to that decree.

Popcorn is ok. But for some reason, people who decide to eat popcorn at work seem incapable of not burning it. Apparently they don't know there is a popcorn button on most microwaves.

Popcorn smells awful, burnt or otherwise.

He owns a lot of properties, so it's a pretty big zone.
