Yeah, I've worked in industry for a long time, some of it in food packging.  But still, I was surprised to hear that there is such a thing as a "Slim Jim factory".  Apparently this product is more of a big deal than I realized.  A big enough deal that it requires some big serious process equipment.  Big enough that, when something goes wrong, it blows a gigundous hole in the side of a 10 acre building!

"3 confirmed dead in Slim Jim plant explosion"
"The unexplained explosion ripped through the 500,000-square-foot ConAgra Foods Inc. plant in Garner while 300 people were at work. Officials said 38 employees were injured, including four with critical burns, and three firefighters were treated for inhaling ammonia fumes and released.

Search and rescue chief Frank McLaurin said two of the bodies were found near each other while the third body was found several hundred feet away

Please don't think that I'm going to make fun over this terrible accident.  Ok, you're going to assume that anyway.  But let me share some sympathy with these poor lost souls.  The dear departed now have to go through eternity answering the same lame pick-up line that's as old as Heaven itself!  Every time they meet another soul, it's going to be "So how did you wind up here?"  What could the answer be, except "A Slim Jim snapped into me!"?

Sorry it just doesn't seem like a great story for eternity to me.  A life dedicated to produciton of a lo-style, hi-visibility snak semi-meat, for the nutri-tainment of guys like this?

I just can't see that being a big step on the way to Nirvana.

But still, it could be worse.  One could suffer a grievous injury in the QC department where they make this product, also called a "Slim Jim":

If someone is shopping for a 17" long cock, do you really think they're going to be looking at anything with "slim" in the name?
