THEY LOVE AND MAKE A LIE
By Steve Van Nattan
So, there was the name- "100% Bran." Now that's real clear isn't it? I mean, no third grader could miss the point, and I think that your average PhD might even accept that name as pretty free of philosophical confusion. Well, being skeptical, after having read thousands of lies in marketing, I looked at the ingredients on the end of the box. I actually expected to find only one word-- BRAN. I mean, that title on the front of the box was just too innocent to make me suspect that they would brag that way then add other ingredients.
Are you ready?
MALTED BARLEY FLOUR
Now, my dear groupies, that is a pretty short list as it usually goes with Twinkies and weenies, etc. And, it is all good food, which is rare. But, did you notice anything? Ah yes, you saw the point-- THEY LIED.
And, who would complain? After all, 99.9% of those who feast on Post's "100% Bran" Cereal are worse liars, right. So, we all go on our way just accepting it as status quo.
We are not going to call for a boycott of Post Cereals. We ARE telling the world though that Post, those fine god-fearing Seventh Day Adventists, are LIARS.
Do eat your bran groupies-- 94.368% Bran, that is.
ONE MORE THOUGHT: Have you ever bought one of those packaged water products with "some ham added to improve consistency"? ...Just thought I'd ask.
