The aim of a joke is not to degrade the human being but to remind him that he is already degraded.

Just Placing it out there
Similar to the phrase "just putting that out there", but it is usually said more as suggestion, particularly when the person saying it lacks confidence that his answer or solution is correct.
Just placing it out there, but we should go bowling tonight.
Just placing it out there, but I think Rachel likes you.

[x] [patung] no vegemite?

[x] [KuKuKaChu] nope. ran out months ago. always forget to buy it when i'm in singapore ...

[x] [riccardo] Hey get this! My 11 month old baby digs vegemite!

[x] [patung] can buy it in surabaya, the "singapore of East Java"

[x] [patung] or the singapore of indonesia maybe

[x] [riccardo] I acquired a taste for it about 10 years ago and often have some on hand for sandwiches now and she tried and is now addicted

[x] [patung] yes good to get them hooked early

[x] [Dilli] Vegamite was added onto the banned goods list in the USA yesterdaY

[x] [KuKuKaChu] many north americans seem to have an exagerated aversion to the stuff

[x] [riccardo] Kuku, your out of it mate. There are at least 5 or 6 supermarket chains in Jakarta that have it. Hero, Ranch Market, Bali Deli, Kemchicks, Sogo supermarket, some of the Carrefours etc. etc.

[x] [KuKuKaChu] ricc, i go to singapore more often than i go to south jakarta

[x] [riccardo] When i was in Cambodia there was only one modern-style market in the country run by an Aussie and I got some and the rest is history.

[x] [riccardo] Kuku, you can walk to the Hero at Sarinah, they have it for sure, and the Bali Deli is nearby at the new Sudirman Place

[x] [KuKuKaChu] don't get caught trying to smuggle it into the US, if ever you decide to visit

[x] [patung] vegemite is owned by americans

[x] [KuKuKaChu] ricc, no place in central jakarta has it, including hero, carreforre, sogo (sogo used to have it a few years ago)

[x] [riccardo] Sogo supermarket, at Sogo Plaz Indo H. I. circle

[x] [KuKuKaChu] patung, yes, they're still trying to figure out why australians buy the stuff.

[x] [KuKuKaChu] ricc, sogo doesn't have it any more

[x] [riccardo] The trouble and strife picked some up at the Giant in Plaza Semanggi yesterday!

[x] [KuKuKaChu] really? havent been to that place for years ... i'll check it out

[x] [riccardo] Ranch Market near my house even has marmite and other brands of vegemite for about 20-40k rp

[x] [KuKuKaChu] actually, my preference is for promite.

[x] [patung] arghhh! marmite doesn't count, hideous stuff, for foreigners

[x] [KuKuKaChu] much less salty

[x] [KuKuKaChu] marmite's for poms

[x] [riccardo] So i've heard, but I buy it all the time for Pom friend, who can't find West Jakarta

[x] [riccardo] I prefer eating vegemite. The baby loves it, pure vitamin B complex

[x] [riccardo] what's the other one made with beef extract or something?

[x] [KuKuKaChu] not sure ... promite is vegetable extract, vegemite is yeast extract

[x] [KuKuKaChu] ricc, yeah, kids seem to have this magnetic affinity for the stuff ... maybe they sense that they need it!
