Drink the Kool-Aid

Have you seen these totally evil and weird pro-high fructose corn syrup ads? That basically say "Stop being such a concerned parent and drink the goddamn Kool-Aid." Like literally.

And there's also this really great response to it. Because the workers have seized the means of production!

Wow. And it's the black lady who

a.) doesn't have the information

b.) puts cheap crap into her body that makes her fat.

c.) doesn't heed the warning of the white lady, who, though equally ill-informed, knows better on a basic, gut level.

Interesting choices by the corn lobby.

Nice response there.

Shocking ad by the corn lobby. some ad person just slam dunked their karma into the cosmic toilet.

I find ad one hilarious because the anti-corn syrup lady played a demon who disguised herself as a human girl so she could go to college on a "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" episode. Of course she's a demon, she's anti-corn syrup!

That ad makes me sad because that's Cathy, Buffy's crazy dorm mate from season four of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

CATHY: (While hanging Cher poster.) I can tell you're cool. This year is going to be SUPER FUN."

Oh. And the black lady is the racist chef who fights Samantha for fucking her hip hop mogul brother on Sex and the City.

"Get your little white pussy away from my brother!"

I watch too much TV.
