Yet another installment in the drudgery that is everyday shopping. The camera-phone makes it a bit more fun – though I get looks whenever I take pics of products. Like I care what people think!
I bet you didn’t think I would make a Shopping with Blobby segment this month. I wondered it myself. But no worries loyal
fans readers – it’s here.
I have noticed that some of the themes to my shopping pics are cereal. But the food / marketing conglomerates make it so frickin’ easy.
Why actually include me in a Shopping w/Blobby post? Because I am a princess, dammit. Or at least a fairy (I put that in after drafting the post – just thinking I’d beat one of you to the comment. So as Kathy Griffin would say ‘suck it’).
Unlike Sleeping Beauty, my curse involves unforgiving overhead supermarket florescent lighting, jowls and the obvious – lack of long blonde flowing locks. (but take a look you motherf*ckers – I’m smiling! ….also notice the ring.)
Of course Barbie cereal is low fat (you can see that if you click to enlarge the picture). Mattel and Kellogg’s would never have a Rubenesque Barbie. Midge and Skipper are a different issue. Barbie needs inferior friends to make herself feel better.
The 10.4 oz marked on the package? Well, that’s not how much cereal that is in the box. That is Barbie’s goal weight. And it is the weight where she is telling you, ‘if are a woman and exceed that amount, society will reject you for the fat cow you are’.
So I guess you’d better buy the cereal.
