    This doesn't necessarily need to be an inanimate object that is used for something, it can be anything.

    My nomination today for the thing that should have evolved but didn't is this thing:

    These things have been on bread and potato bags since I can remember being a kid. They fulfill their purpose of holding the bag closed, and also their secondary purpose of ripping through the soft flesh of the inside of my fingers as I try to lift a 10 pound bag of potatoes into my pantry.

    Why has this frigging thing not evolved or been replaced completely with something that doesn't double as a torture device?

    The way that they package cold cults at grocery stores. I feel as though the dopes at grocery stores sometimes purposely wrap the sticker around the ziplock so you basically have no choice but to pull the sticker back and subsequently rip the bag and have to replace it. This is more of a human error thing though and I don't think it's an error.

    Those fuckers just want to piss me off.

    Cereal bags should be ziplock and not the glued plastic that you either tear to the point there’s cereal everywhere or best case have a bulged out box that won’t close enough to keep the cereal fresh for longer than a day.

    I think cereal companies do that so the cereal goes stale and you have to buy a new box

    What about that piece of butcher paper they leave in the bag and it immediately begins turning into a bacteria colony?

    Man, cold cuts. Does anything scream obese suburban pre diabetic American than “cold cuts”?

    Brie is fucking gross. And I dig the other moldy cheeses like blue cheese and gorgonzola, but brie tastes like ass.

    2 slices of turkey rolled up with my salad every day for lunch. Seems pretty healthy.

    The Soviets also despised cold cuts. Just a coincidence I suppose.

    I visited the soviet union back in the day. Don't be telling me about their dietary habits. After two weeks I was looking for a brillo pad to eat on account of the utter lack of roughage.

    The borscht was top shelf, so I'm told.

    Nothing goes better with a grilled brie and corned beef than a nice bowl of borscht.

    Cereal in a box is stale the second it's made.

    Did the platypus choose its final form yet? What the fuck is up with that?
