Like a Horse and Carriage...Sort of...

Since my jam session turned out so well, I've decided I'll do two more canning projects; applesauce and diced tomatoes...two things we go through pretty consistently here. Like the potato masher I realized I was lacking when it came time to gather supplies for jam, I realized I don't have that little serrated thing-y that removes the tops from tomatoes (aparrently it's called a shark?) So I went to amazon, because it's my go-to site with all the giftcards I have and found the perfect tool. Now I'll also be able to create those hollowed out watermelons that look like a basket! (Kidding, I won't ever actually do that.) But, imagine my surprise when Amazon prompted me to purchase the additional 'frequently paired' item:

"Frequently Bought Together: Customers buy this item with Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Widescreen Edition) DVD ~ Daniel Radcliffe

+

Price For Both: $18.48 "


Really? Are Harry Potter sales doing that poorly now? Or are HP fans also crazy melon baller/tomato sharkers?

hee hee hee! Being a HP fan myself, I have never felt the need to melon ball or carve a melon basket or take the tops off of tomatoes when watching a movie... maybe its just me!

BTW what part of MA are you from?? I'm from Leominster, and I'm 30something too!... small world
