100% Partly True

This paper coffee bag came from the local yuppie-organic-type supermarket. I thought it was pretty funny.

Yeah, and my body is 100% molybdenum... after removing the parts that aren't molybdenum...

Where's the math? You should be able to tell us what percentage recyclable it really is. Both by weight and volume.

Well, I can tell you that I am solid molybdenum (after removing the 99.99999%, by mass, of me that is not.)

I love a good marketing department! Reminds me of Burt's Bees lotions: they are labeled 99.01% all natural. Never mind that 0.99% "secret ingredient" could be radioactive waste! I used to also note with amusement that all of the Body Shop brand beauty products carried a label that read: "Against Animal Testing". A non-statement as in,"we are against animal testing but have to resort to it from time to time."
Ah yuppy-feel-goodness!

Ha! Yes. And that reminds me further of the Ivory Soap we used growing up. It said on the label "99 & 44/100ths % Pure"-- which I always thought might just as well read "56/100ths % Dog-Doo"
