What is this world coming to?

I fully support laziness. In fact, it may surprise some of you to know that I, myself, am lazy.
Oh, who am I kidding? If you know me at know I adhere to the lazy code of ethics and try to do as little as possible. The fact that I even blog puts me in direct violation of my exertion level for the week. I have to counteract it by doing even less in other areas of my life. Family, It has to even out somewhere.

As lazy as I am though...I saw a commercial for a product that really seems unnecessary and perhaps explains why other countries despise us.

Yes,'s the 'Shake and Pour Bisquick.'
I love fresh pancakes and sometimes wish I didn't have to go to iHop to get them! But making pancakes has always been such a hassle. When I try to make them at's a disaster. How much milk do I add? Do I even have a clean bowl to mix it in? And...I have to whisk it? Are you kidding me? I don't want fresh butter...I just want a pancake! I'm not whisking my breakfast! I don't have time for this!
How many times have your kids asked for pancakes and all you could think is... if only there was a way to just shake the batter and pour it...skip all the middle steps! If only...
Well, readers...all your problems are solved. Add liquid, shake and then pour your pancake perfection! No confusing measuring, no messy bowls, no clean-up!

Yeah...I see why other countries hate Americans. I wish they had a shake and pour cake mix...

I'd totally be down with shake and pour steak. No fuss, no muss. Just some hardcore red meat grilled to perfection with just the right amount of herbs and spices.

Of course, I suppose that may take out the manlyness of grilling or roasting said steak over an open flame.

I think it depends on how you shake it. Could still be manly.
