Comments

TheSnoopKat: I don't know about y'all but I doubt I eat 22 teaspoons of sugar a day..

Friendly Boatman: I actually like Circus Peanuts...

Hal Swann: gave up all foods with sugar, cannot believe how much better i feel now. Even dropped 20 lbs in the first 5 months without even trying.

Lisa Lisa: Sorry, John.
Love u and Clamato.
Is that wrong?
😁

Edgar Madking: I love cranberries. And circus peanuts. Sexy John oliver is, in fact, quite sexy.

theGreninjaWizard: IT is honestly embarrasing that we are still letting food Industries get away with this shit. Why can't the fda just have unlimited power over them? Fuck lobyists and interest groups!

Edgar Madking: Sexy John oliver works way better than sexy C.K.

Louis Burke: I understand the metric system

Mosi Musik: Metric system is easy and makes sense ...teaspoons come in different sizes just saying ...who's the dumb one?

Blackforest98: 96% of the world uses metric system.
3.94% of that is the US.
0.06% is Burma.
Quite amazing.

Louis Randolph: Cocane for kids
Ps: as it turns out, it is.

Ricardo Menoncin: Best. Conclusion. Ever.

Chad Sable: Did anyone else catch that $41,000 equals half $1 million?

Adam Onis: Sugar is the number one cause of obesity

Kamen Kunchev: Please don't get me started on the metric system :) USA is still using the archaic and inaccurate British Imperial System (or at least a perverted version of it considering significant differences in gallon measurements between the British and US gallon) because the US never shook off Great Britain as a colonizer. The US pharmaceutical industry as well as NASA for example use the metric system for being accurate and the same around the world.

PSN Chico_Dust-E: circus peanuts are fucking disgusting! They used to give those out back in the 80s for Halloween by they I mean cheap houses.

Maartje Moot: "nobody understands the metric system" except for the rest of the world you dipshit

Michael Nicolaisen: please,


show me your peanuts

Wesley Nielsen: No joke, I'm eating birthday cake while watching this and I don't feel bad. To be fair, the cake is at that point about a day after you buy it that it has the perfect level of fluffiness to creamy ratio

So what: There are 5 grams of sugar in that garbage peanuts thing... Which is pretty much their whole weight. Also: Clamato? What the fuck is wrong with you, America?
