The Thursday purchase of the H.J. Heinz Co. by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc. would put that final touch — and condiment — on a complete Berkshire buffet.
Here’s how your day would break down:
Slip on your Fruit of the Loom socks and your Justin boots (or Brooks running shoes, your choice) and head out to the store. You’ll need some Heinz products: Classico pasta sauce for your spaghetti dinner and some Ore Ida French fries for the kids. Why not grab some Bagel Bites, too? You’ll need them for the big game this weekend.
And, of course, some Heinz ketchup.
Don’t worry about driving. Geico insures your car, after all.
In the kitchen, you can pull out that Pampered Chef cooking stone to bake the fries and the company’s saucepan to warm up the Classico sauce.
It’s a good thing you went to Nebraska Furniture Mart last weekend and bought that new gas stove.
While everything is cooking, you’ll have time to set the table, which sits on hardwood floors from Shaw Industries — all purchased at the Mart. You’ll want to make this a festive occasion, so break out some party supplies from Oriental Trading Co.
And while you’re having that family dinner, you can get conversation rolling by talking about the news you found in The World-Herald.
Everyone’s full, even the kids. But there’s always room for ice cream cake! Back in the car to buy a special treat at the nearby Dairy Queen. Mom is partial to See’s Candies, so she gets her own dessert.
When you’re all cozy back at your Clayton Homes dwelling, it’s time to surprise Mom with her Valentine’s Day gift, a beautiful necklace purchased at Borsheims.
A perfect way to end a Berkshire Hathaway day.
