If the sound of your snack bag bothers you that much, perhaps you are eating too many snacks. [Casts withering glare in America's direction.]

If the chips make too much noise then chew with your mouth closed, you pigs! Oh, the bags make the noise? Nevermind.

Aren't there other biodegradable bags that aren't so noisy?

Maybe they could sell Sunchips in one of the bulk bins at the Whole Foods?

Everyone should be forced to eat chips from big glass bowls, like at grandma's house. And they should be sold in large sheets, with no wrapping -- people should smash their own chips at home.

Actually, we should just ban chips.

God, those bags were noisy. My parents had SunChips in the house last time I visited, and we teased each other mercilessly. "OH IS SOMEONE GETTING A SNACK? SOUNDS LIKE SOMEONE IS HAVING CHIPS."

This reminds me that I haven't made kale chips in a while. You people aren't exerting enough influence on me, I guess.

When my wife went on a health kick a while back chips were banned from the house. My teenagers responded by making their own. Slice the potato very thin, drizzle olive oil and salt, bake until done. Actually pretty good, but not as easy as microwapped popcorn.

If only they weren't biodegradable (and thus, I imagine, not likely to hold up well on trips through the wash), it sounds like they would have made great crinkly innards for a cloth baby toy. You can see the lines my mind runs along these days. OOH CRINKLY!

SHINY! CHEWY!

Anyhow, the Frito-Lay executives who made this decision should be forced to listen to the noisy sounds of the ocean, from a raft with no food and no radio in the middle of the Pacific Trash Vortex.

This sounds, uh, unlikely. I haven't live out there or anything, but I find it hard to believe there's a gay hangout anywhere that doesn't have at least an occasional incident of that sort.

Its sacredness surely doesn't mean that it actually exerts a repulsive force on those who would profane it.

25: Agreed. If we're going to argue about something, we'll need something more divisive.

Resolved: the Garden Salsa flavor of Sun Chips is clearly superior to the Harvest Cheddar flavor.

re: 19

I expect that's probably right. It does seem a fairly high risk piece of assholery, though. Akin to walking into a Rangers pub in a Celtic t-shirt. Sooner or later someone is going to get a doing.

By which I don't mean "akin" in level of genuine offence, just that it's possible to backfire, badly.

True, but they're really, really very noisy. Like 95 decibels noisy. Lawn mower noisy. (I don't particularly recommend watching the video; it's pretty boring.)
