Food Blob: Rest In Peace, Gator Dude

• Sad but true: The inventor of Gatorade has gone to the big sports bottle in the sky. But as in life, he brings us joy by inspiring a bouncy obit with such phrases as “cunning dashes of whatever.” Truth be told, Gatorade will always remind us of a simpler time, before VitaminWater and Fuze […]
