Of Mac and Men

There aren't many kid shows more insipid than Hannah Montana. There are many reasons to hate this media phenomenon and see it as a harbinger of pure evil, not the least of which is the fact that it's become a vehicle for Billy Ray Cyrus to reenter our cultural consciousness. But just when you think this crap has been marketed to capacity--movies, concerts, t-shirts, toys, soundtracks, underwear...and who knows, perhaps even a brand of ipecac--along comes the Kraft corporation:

The thought of eating little bits of Miley Cyrus is really disturbing, and almost pedophilic. It gives a new meaning to "consumer culture," doesn't it? (By the way, I hope that top piece of macaroni on the package is a microphone.)

And while I'm on the subject of Kraft...Sometimes the labeling of their various brands of mac and cheese really makes me wonder.

I'm not exactly sure what to make of "premium thick 'n creamy." How about you?

As if boxed mac and cheese wasn't disgusting enough already. I'm so sick of seeing her. And it's nothing against her as a person... she's just a puppet, I get that.

Also, they lie about the creamy part. Even when you dissolve the cheese in more milk and butter than the box calls for before adding the macaroni back in the pot, there's still a powdery thing going on in the background.

These aren't as bad as the gummi microphones and guitars. Have you seen those?
