Check out some gigantic dogs, playful pups of the sea, electrifying house music, mouth-watering Lebanese platters and much more. It’s a magical mystery tour of some of the funkiest shops on Content Catnip road – edition #89.

Mall Grab – Breathing

I love the handheld, 90’s feel of this video clip and classic 90’s ravey drum machine sound. I can’t get enough of this song.

Study shows that shoppers will ditch red meat when they are shown its climate impact on shopping receipts

Oda, a supermarket in Norway introduced a flagging system to categorise the climate impact of their products on shoppers’ receipts. They have found that since introducing the scheme in 2021, the sales of carbo-heavy products (including meat) have fallen.

Via The Happy Broadcast and Green Queen.

“Our customers told us that they find it close to impossible to know what is climate-friendly. We thought it was an important challenge to solve. We do not want to point fingers and tell our customers what to buy and what to avoid – climate receipts are what our customers asked for. Customer feedback has, reportedly, been positive and a surge in plant-based groceries has been identified. One in every five burgers sold is now vegetarian and the popularity of vegetarian meals generally has grown. Lentil soup was one of our top ten sold recipes last year – the previous years it was nowhere near the top ten.”

~ Louise Fuchs, director at Oda supermarket.

20 things to say to your partner just to annoy them by Brian Lageose

I had a good chortle to these…Brian is a genius hehe

1.  “Is there a particular reason why you can’t unload the dishwasher? Is it a religious issue?”

2. “That button on the DVR remote that says ‘Erase All’? What happens if you accidentally push that? And what happens if I’m the one that pushed it?”

3. “You think it’s okay that the Christmas boxes are still stacked in the den? Let’s put you in the attic and see how you feel about things being in the wrong place for 11 months of the year.”

4. “I hung up on your brother. Never liked him. Too whiny.”

5. “Can I borrow that book you read? You know, the one that told you it was okay to pick all the meat off the leftover pizza and then shove it back in the refrigerator? That one.”

6. “Do you think I’m prettier than Eva Longoria?”

7. “You do realize that the people on ‘Survivor’ can’t hear you, right?”

8. “What was the name of that restaurant we ate at that one time where they had breadsticks?”

9. “Do you think pudding has feelings?”

10. “I’m taking the kids back to the store. I don’t think these are the ones we ordered.”

11. “I love pencil shavings.”

12. “What’s a word that rhymes with ‘orange’?”

13. “The hard drive was getting full on our computer, so I had to delete some pictures. You remember what your family members look like, right?”

14. “I wrote a poem about our relationship. Want to hear it?”

15. “No, really, do you? Wait, why are you crying?”

16. “You know I love you. But can we talk about your toenails? You could harvest bamboo with that mess.”

17. “I think we should start making our own ketchup from scratch.”

18. “You know that little whimpering noise you make when you want to have sex? It’s not as cute as you think it is.”

19. “I might have done something I shouldn’t have with that thing you told me to never touch.”

Something about this room and it’s glistening stereo, colour scheme and harmony of shapes does it for me, I am not even sure why though?

More sounds from the department store

You know that strange, chirpy Muzak that you could hear and enjoy in decades gone by in shopping centres (malls if you live in the US). Well here is a selection of nostalgic melodies to take you back to the dawn of consumer optimism. It’s refreshing, uplifting and will give you a good feeling inside.

Lebanese inspired vegan plate

I need this in my life this looks so incredible! I can’t wait to try it. Lebanese foods have the perfect combination of sweet, sour, bitter and salty flavours in my opinion, what do you think of them?

    1. Thank you so much 💓 yes his art is really amazing glad you like it. Yes the receipts approach seems to work as it is a way of informing people but it doesn’t take away their ability to choose either, I love that
