Wild Fields of Crunch Berries

No you two assholes, it's not the actual picture, it's the goddamn content of the picture. It's the act that the pictures portray not the physical existence of the picture.

Why don't you focus on holding accountable the people who allowed the content of the pictures to occur?

By hiding the pictures, you're not doing away with the actual content.

These two douchebags will do anything for camera time.

Graham, Lieberman threaten Senate shut down over abuse photo bill:

"In a press conference Tuesday afternoon, Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Joe Lieberman (I-C.T.) threatened to shut down the Senate by blocking any further legislation unless their bill preventing the release of any further detainee abuse photos is passed.

Both men said they fear more disclosure would trigger heightened violence against Americans overseas"

O'Reilly and Fox News will have more right-wing vigilantism to explain | Media Matters for America:

"If Fox News is going to continue to traffic in hateful rhetoric, then folks at Fox News, as well as their apologists in the GOP Noise Machine, are going to have to come up with better talking points to spin away the atmosphere of vigilantism fomented by their words and actions."

Someone snapped WAY too far into a Slim Jim.

'A' for effort... dude.

Man accused of trying to smuggle pot on surfboard:

"The Border Patrol said a man has been arrested for allegedly trying to smuggle 24 pounds of marijuana ashore on his surfboard off the San Diego County coast. The man was spotted Sunday morning about 200 yards off Imperial Beach, near the Mexican border."

Another 'A' for effort and an homage to 'Jerome'. Those who know, know.

The Mommy Files : Where the wild crunch berries grow:

"Guess what? The multicolored balls in Cap'N Crunch's Crunch Berries aren't real berries.

If you have ever purchased this cereal for your family, you probably already know this but that's not the case with San Diego woman Janine Sugawara.

Sugawara bought the cereal for four years believing crunch berries were a real fruit, according to the blog Lowering the Bar. When she learned the purple, teal, and green berries were actually cereal balls flavored with strawberry concentrate, she cried fraud and sued the manufacturer."

It should be obvious to anyone who's eaten a Crunch Berry, that a CB has as much to do with fruit as Fox News has to do with news, but does that make it right? They're calling the thing a "berry" which implies fruit, healthy, nutritious, etc...

Since advertisers can get away with claiming almost anything they want, it's nice to see someone at least attempt to fight back, no matter how feebly.

Granted the timing is about 30 years late, but blaming the consumer because big business was able to pull the wool over her eyes leads one down a dangerous path.
