The Incredible Shrinking Product…

Well, I went to Sam’s Club today to get some stuff, and I noticed that the old 6oz cans of chunk light tuna have been replaced with 5oz cans at the same price, an effective price increase of 20%. Then I went to get a pint of Haagen-Daz ice cream, and saw that the old pint had been reduced to 14oz, about a 12% increase in price. I couldn’t stand it any more, so I went to my local pub, ordered a pint of beer. They had replaced my 20oz imperial pint glass with a “shaker” pint glass, which is only 14oz, so with the head, I actually got about 12oz of beer, almost a 40% price increase!!! I’m going home and pouring myself a real 22oz bomber of my home brew!
