Sponge Bob, I hate you.

Because of the bariatric surgery, I am supposed to take a sugar-free chewable vitamin daily. Chewable vitamins, of course, are marketed almost entirely for children, so I have bought Scooby Doo and Winnie The Pooh vitamins, making my decision solely on what's available and sugar-free on a given trip to the pharmacy. The 'fruity' flavors were a big chalky, but nothing I couldn't live with.

Then I got the bright idea of buying the big bottle of Centrum Sponge Bob sugar-free chewables at the warehouse store. For $13, I got a six-month supply, instead of paying $6 for a two-month supply. Great deal, right? Erk. Now I'm stuck with 173 of the worst-tasting vitamins I have ever run across. Most of them appear to be grape, which is a flavor I have always hated. None of the flavors are bad at first(except the grape), but they leave an incredibly bitter aftertaste. Each morning when I crunch one of these suckers, I pat myself on the back for doing it, and try not to think about the fact that I'll be doing this daily until next September. Bleah.

I never trust anyone who wears that much yellow anyway. It's like a big warning sign "DANGEROUS! APPROACH WITH CAUTION!"

Maybe they'd be better if you rolled them up in a piece of cheese? Or, more practically, just cut them up or smash them and swallow them with a big glass of water.

Sponge Bob alone should have set off red flags.

One of only two cartoons where I rooted for the bad guys. Smurfs being the other.
