Puffery. That’s what these poison purveyors are pushing on us. They’re saying the stuff they put out is harmless and they’re just trying to help us have a good time.
Mc Donald’s puts out a bullshit loss leader of a salad to make you think they’re listening, while your kids are gaining new fat cells gobbling down Happy Meals.
Here we have Matthew McConaughey trying to tell us how brilliant the drinkers of Wild Turkey Bourbon liquor are. Now that’s acting. Alright, alright alright.
Budweiser wants you think you can’t have a good time watching football, throwing a party or having sex without them.
Coca cola is the largest advertising buyer on the planet. When I go to the supermarket at 5:00 am, there are at least 6 coke employees re-stocking shelves to beat the band while store employees with knee pads are interrupting every aisle replenishing the chips, dips and candies.
Meanwhile, you hear a Twinkies trailer humping the back of the building. You think these companies aren’t factoring in legalized marijuana in their five year plans? Munchies by proxie.
What’s the big deal? People should be allowed to drink and eat responsibly, right? Not while Madison Avenue has a pulse.
We all have choices but that shouldn’t be an excuse for these companies to get away with the kind of puffery they’re inflicting on us.
Remember the senate investigation of 20 cigarette manufacturers who all swore cigarettes were harmless? Remember the Marlboro man?
From my daily observations at the supermarket, almost every shopping cart I see matches the physical appearance and condition of the owner. I can look in the cart and make a diagnosis.
We are physical disasters on the way to happen. The last well proportioned female I saw in this town was……12 years old.
In 2030, 50% of Americans will be obese. It will be a disaster. You will have to know someone to get a hospital bed.
Fat acceptance is already accepted. They are calling it “Healthy at any size.” The photos are garish.
Fact: If your BMI is 30 and above, you are considered obese. If you are obese, you are sick. You are not well. Period. No sugar coating, obviously.
They keep puffin’ and we keep stuffin’ that muffin. And I am done huffin’.
Well, alright, alright alright.
