The Peanut Butter Recall Hits Close to Home...

I've had a low down no good rotten day...so it should have been no surprise that when I came home, I should find a request in my inbox from someone who found a photo I posted on Flickr and wanted to use it in an online news community article...

Now, this was some really exciting news indeed...someone wanted to use my photo in a news article? How fantastic! The day was looking up at this point...

They said they would give me full credit with a link back to my Flickr page, and if I wanted to check out how my picture would look with their story to click on over to the link:

My Picture being used for famous reasons.

Oh.

Peanut butter used in candy is now apparently being recalled.

They wanted the picture of the peanut butter fudge I lovingly made for my friends and family this holiday season.

Oh.

I did submit my picture anyway (after calling Rich and sending him into hysterical giggles...which he should really think hard about. After all, he was the recipient of most of the fudge due to other food allergies) because I figure it's still nice to get the recognition...but I would like to go on the record as saying to anyone who received my peanut butter fudge, that I used organic peanut butter in the fudge this year, I bought it in bulk at CostCo, it was waaaay before this whole peanut butter scare, and I am not recalling it...

At this point.

Oh no! I mean, GREAT! :) This kind of reminds me of that quote about how it doesn't matter if the publicity is good or bad as long as they get your name right... :)

Kudos on having a picture used!

Hey, any press is good press, right?

*backs away slowly before she ends up on the list for next year's fudge*

Lol, that is hilarious. I can't believe they're using your picture for such an, um, interesting article. Tee hee hee!

Too funny. Congrats on being discovered!

Hee hee! It's great about the photo being published, even if it's for a bad-news story. And mmmmm. Fudge.

Hum, you know that peanut butter plant is just a ways on down the road south of me. Things aren't looking to pretty around here in Georgia. Lots of finger pointing and blame naming going on.
