    Agreed. Too lazy to wash a dish is about the same as too lazy to button up a pair of Levi's.

    What about eating out a can? That's like being naked and I'm most comfortable that way.

    I think I saw math once that measured paper plate footprint vs hot water usage. Closer than you think.

    Plates for.. snacks? You mean not everybody just grabs a handful of [snack] and walks away?:confused:
    Sure, sometimes I'll lose a few chips on the way to the couch, but that's what dogs are for!:lol:

    1000 generic coffee filters are less expensive than paper plates, and are ideal popcorn servers. FYI.
