    Default Manwich Commercial

    It goes something like this:

    A bunch of kids are up on stage dressed up as vegetables
    (supposedly). One kid, dressed as an ear of corn, turns to a little
    girl dressed up as a Sloppy Joe and says "You're supposed to dress
    up as a VEGETABLE!".

    The girl says, "I AM a full serving of vegetables". This cues the
    announcer who explains that a prepared serving of Manwich contains a
    full USRDA serving of vegetables while showing a family chowing down
    on Sloppy Joes.

    Then the scene changes back to the Manwich girl and the ear of corn,
    She says, "And look at you, you're dressed up as a grain, not a
    vegetable!"

    Now for the irony:

    I hate to break it to you, makers of Manwich, but tomato paste and
    tomato puree(*) are not vegetables either. Tomatoes are fruits.
    You need a new marketing team.

    Ta-DAAAAAA dump.

    Commercials about Chef Boyardee canned [whatever] tout the same thing:

    What a way to teach kids NOT to eat vegetables! Anything green and fresh
    must be just awful. You can get it in this can of mushy pasta in tomato
    sauce instead! I'm not buying it (literally).

    As a kid I ate this stuff, but not often as we had a huge garden out back. Now
    I may enjoy a bowl of spaghetti O's with a few slices of toast on a rainy day
    (comfort food from my childhood). With three boys (eating machines) and my
    darling sister, my parents had to stretch the dollar some how.

    Me, too.

    I loved it in grade school and I still love it. I suspect my 50s K-6
    school used essentially the same Hunt's canned product in their
    cafeteria, cuz it tastes identical, too me.

    Looking out the my icy window at yesterday's heavy snowfall being
    blown into near blizzard conditions by 30mph winds, I can't help but
    fondly recall those gray Winter days in our little Quonset hut
    cafeteria, all warm and cheery with hot food lovingly laddled out onto
    square sectioned trays by a smiling matron who actually cooked food in
    real pots on real stoves. I never minded bag lunches, which had a
    certain red rubber ball aged charm, in the summer, but I was glad mom
    could afford the high luxury of a 25 cent hot lunch and a 5 cent milk
    in the dead of Winter and I could enjoy that steaming lucious brown
    mass on its own snow white burger bun. (I'm gettin' all misty)

    Though Reagan's administration counted ketchup as a vegetable serving, the
    Supreme Court declared the tomato as a vegetable nearly 100 years earlier.
    Regardless of botanical science, the Supreme Courted declared the tomato to
    be a vegetable in order to protect US tomato farmers from imorts; there was
    a tax on imported vegetables but not fruit.

    Botanically tomato is fruit but all plants are vegetable... beans are
    botanically fruit but are refered to as vegetable. Fruit is a sub
    catagory of vegetable.

    Which brings up another question (and Ob:ManWhich) At what stage of
    transsexualism is a former man [woman] legally allowed to use a

    Oh, lets say... Modesto, California and Austin, Texas.

    Heh.

    Point was that legally they can declare one thing to be something ti
    isn't, but it's really still just the original thing.

    And then there's the age thing. I felt fine bringing my daughter into a
    men's restroom when she was two, even though she wasn't a man (or a
    boy). My office partner said the women at her health club objected when
    mothers brought their sons into the women's locker room. I believe they
    set the cutoff at eight years old.

    They sure start them early these days. Kinda makes lactose

    Last I read, Ronald Reagan had nothing to do with it, and wasn't even
    informed of it beforehand.


    > Though Reagan's administration counted ketchup as a vegetable serving


    In my reading, ketchup was never counted as a vegetable. There was a
    proposal that ketchup be counted for subsidized school lunches, but it
    was shot down very early on. The problem was that, in order to qualify
    for the subsidy, students had to be given vegetables. This cost a lot
    of money, both to buy the vegetables and also to pay the garbage
    company, since they all went in the garbage.

    One proposal was to give the students a choice of whether to take the
    vegetables.

    News for you. Fruits and vegetables are the same, as far as the food
    pyramid goes.
    The only reason tomatoes are fruits is because they are the part of
    the plant that contains the seeds.
    Botanically, fruits are vegetation. All fruits are vegetables but not
    all vegetables are fruits. Some are leaves, some are stems, some are
    roots.

    And rightly so... eight is much too old.

    I'm pretty sure that most two year old girls don't notice men's things
    but I bet plenty do, even at 1 1/2, and there are plenty of grown male
    deviants who will be ogling 2 year old girls, and younger. And I can
    tell you from personal experience that 4 year old boys definitely
    notice grown female's boobs... and by 8 they do lot's more than just
    notice.
