When the subliminal becomes the just plain weird

Or as Alicia Carrier puts it: WTF, broccoli?

Check out this shot from a package of Cascadian Farm frozen broccoli florets (whatever those are):

Wait for it...

It's people! Cascadian Farm broccoli is made out of people! They're making our food out of people. Next thing they'll be breeding us like cattle for food. You've gotta tell them!

Clear as mud

We're not off to a good start here. The Treasury Department released a statement last week committing to "an open and transparent program with appropriate oversight."

Was this what they meant?

Meet plumber Joe Wurzelbacher [Video]

Meet Joe Wurzelbacher, a plumber from Holland, OH (according to a cursory Google search). I doubt that Mr. Wurzelbacher had any idea that he'd become a central figure in the third and final presidential debate held tonight at Hofstra University in Hempstead, NY.

If I remember correctly, presidential hopeful John McCain first brought up Joe's conversation with Barack Obama to illustrate Obama's desire to use the Federal Income Tax structure to "spread the wealth." Obama argued otherwise.

Here's the entire conversation between Mr. Wurzelbacher and Mr. Obama as it took place on the campaign trail. Give it a watch and decide for yourself.

Stewart's at his sharpest here. Granted, the material is writing itself here, but damn. Good show John. Good show.

Truth in Advertising: Greasy Sadness

All the ingredients were there, but they didn’t look like the advertisement photos and they tasted like greasy sadness.
Why so disappointed Timbotron? Personally, I quite prefer the taste of greasy sadness. I find it strangely comforting.
