People don’t like her because it’s the making of her, right now. When she, sometime soon in the future, becomes this person that she’s been kind of building up to, for the past three seasons, now four, then people will really begin to root for her. I think even the audience doesn’t realize she’s such a dark horse. If she acted badass and tried to kill everyone there, she would be dead by now! She’s so intelligent, and I can’t stress that enough. Courtesy is a lady’s armor. She’s using her courtesy to deceive people, and she’s using her former self as a facade, and it works so much to her advantage, because people still think she’s this naive, vulnerable, little girl, and she’s really not. She knows exactly what she’s doing. She knows what game she’s playing! And no one else does. And she’s learned from the best — Cersei, Margaery, Tyrion, Littlefinger, even Joffrey. She’s learned so much from these people, and they don’t even realize it. They’re unwittingly feeding her to become this great kind of manipulator. King’s Landing can either make or break a person, and in Sansa’s case, it’s making her.
When they realized women were using their sacks to make clothes for their children, flour mills started using flowered fabric for their sacks. The label was designed to wash out.
1939 Kansas Wheat…
holy fuck that’s the cutest marketing scheme i’ve ever heard of
'buy our flour it's going to make the nicest bread and the sweetest dress!’
yes thank you ok sold
I see it differently. During the Great Depression, a lot of people couldn’t afford new fabric, let alone new clothes. They used whatever they could get their hands to make clothes for their kids, as we know kids grow out of clothing really fast. Thus they used burlap and flour sacks.
When flour mills noticed this, they didn’t use it as a marketing ploy. Actually, it was more of a gift the flour mills printed the material. They were trying to help the kids look nicer, that they didn’t have to walk around in just flour sacks, but look normal despite the circumstances.
I showed my Grandma this post, and her father used to run a flour mill. She remembers when she was teased for have “sack dresses”, but when her father’s boss began to provide patterned bags, she wasn’t teased that badly.
Preeeetty sure it was more about marketing than “a gift”, stuff like this is usually the result of really heavy duty market probing and brainstorming. It’s kind of like how Cool Whip was intentionally put in containers that could be reused like tupperware to make it more appealing to housewives. Company sells more product, people have a more useful resource, everyone wins.
MULTIPLE people I am following are asking what these are, why we call them holy when only one has a hole. If they are made by the same company, and what is with us praising these.
I weep for you people, from other countries. WEEP.
Aussies may have Tim Tams.
EU may have Kinder and All sorts of fantastic biscuits.
USA? Has GIRL SCOUT COOKIES.
Not only are these things SINFULLY good, they are only sold for a bit over 1 month of the year, depending on region, that month of the year changes.
That middle one is Chocolate, Caramel Coconut. The left one is Peanut Butter, chocolate and sex on a stick aka crumbly cookie/biscuit.
You can eat em straight from the box, but pros? Pros eat these bad boys frozen.
And thin mints, man. that right one? THIN MINTS. You may have heard of these. Chocolate biscuit infused with mint essence coated in dark chocolate.
Those thin mints.
The Thin Mints for which every grown ass American on a Medical Diet cries for when they see a girlscout.
The Thin Mints with 1000 copycats, and not a one of them successful.
Girl Scouts, regularly boycotted by Fundies and Anti-choice nutters, not only taste amazing, but you get the joy of giving money to a good cause, while subtly flipping the bird at overly wound up fundie groups.
It’s like donating to Planned Parenthood and getting a box of double dark chocolate with fudge filling tim-tams especially made for them.
The reason we eat them frozen is that we buy as many boxes of thin mints as we possibly can during that short sale period, and then store them for the dark months, like proud American squirrels.
PROUD AMERICAN SQUIRRELS.
AMERICAN SQUIRRELS REPRESENT
This is the greatest explanation of Girl Scout cookies I’ve ever seen
As a lifelong Girl Scout I fully approve of this post.
